The 244-unit apartment community is still being developed, and developers expect a new building to open each month until all seven buildings are finished at year's end.
"The nearness of the W Rail is a big draw for us," said Heather Ruzka, regional property manager for Greystar, manager of the property. "There's not a lot brand new in the area, so that has people interested as well."
1. Apartment details: WestLink offers one-, two- and three-bedroom apartments. Apartments feature nine-foot ceilings, balconies, granite countertops and stainless steel appliances. The apartments just started leasing a little over a month ago, and Ruzka said they are filling up fast.
2. Pet-friendly: Lakewood is a very pet-friendly community, and WestLink was designed with that in mind. All the apartments are pet-friendly, and WestLink has a "Paw Spa" so residents can pamper their pets. Ruzka also said the complex will have a "Doggy DNA" program, to keep track of animals who may get lost or whose owners don't clean up after them.
3. Special features: WestLink offers an outdoor playground and clubhouse with a fitness center and pool table. There will be a pool open year-round with a sun deck with cabanas, barbecue grills and an outdoor lounge. One of its most unique features is a guest suite that can be reserved for guests when there isn't room in the apartment.
4. Sustainable design: Katie Hall, community manager, said the complex is almost entirely paperless. This cuts down on the complex's waste, as do the energy-efficient appliances. WestLink also offers door-to-door recycling, which reduces the amount of recyclable material contaminated by trash.
5. Location, location: The apartments were named after the nearby light-rail station, and the nearness of the resource is one of the biggest selling points.
"Since we're located at the old Target site, we have a lot of locals who are interested in what's going on here," Hall said.
"It's centrally located between downtown Denver and the mountains, which is great because you don't have to fight traffic," Ruzka added.
