Glenwood East, left, a new, $37.5 million luxury apartment complex is now open. The 236-unit development was designed by the architecture firm Lord, Aeck & Sargent for builder/developer Alliance Residential Co. Located just east of Glenwood Park, each of the wood frame-constructed buildings is four stories plus an above-grade basement level with brick and stucco front facades. To mitigate sound and provide privacy, balconies are partially recessed into their respective units. Amenities include a swimming pool, gym and yoga room, laundry, a business center, WiFi access in the common areas, high-speed Internet access in the apartment homes, gated access into the courtyards and an on-site leasing center. The apartment homes are available in studio and one- and two-bedroom configurations. www.glenwoodeast.com
