The Dobbins Group has tapped Arlington Properties to professionally manage one of its newest Birmingham apartment communities, Axel Row.

The 96-unit community will offer studios and one, and two-bedroom apartment homes less than 3-miles from the University of Alabama Birmingham. Axel Row is located in the popular Avondale neighborhood known for its local authenticity, with trendy coffee shops, craft breweries, live music venues, and an eclectic mix of restaurants.

“Axel Row is unlike other apartment communities in Birmingham,” said Arlington Regional Vice President Mary Bradley. “One significant differential is the Avondale location; restaurants, workspaces, and entertainment venues are right out the front door. Residents can walk from Axel Row to a multitude of eating and drinking establishments. It is just two blocks from Avondale Park, a historic 36.5- acre public park ideal for dog walking — Axel Row is a pet-friendly community — and meeting up with friends. The park features an outdoor amphitheater, areas for picnics, tennis courts, and a walking track. The vibe of the neighborhood and Axel Row is complimentary — both, attractive to an energetic lifestyle.”

“Axel Row features premium, modern finishes throughout, said Anne Adams, regional manager for Arlington Properties. The community offers entertainment areas that include a fire pit, outdoor kitchens with gas grills, and a Bocce ball court. All of the apartment homes have a balcony or patio. The community offers a 24-hour automated parcel locker system, gated parking, and elevators for easy apartment access. It also has state-of-the-art fiber-optic internet.”

“It truly has it all,” said Bradley. Bradley went on to say that Arlington Properties strives to bring a culture of professionalism to each community they manage. “We can relate to our residents and focus on their satisfaction while maximizing the return on investment for our owners.”
