Starting with the location…

The neighborhood location is measured the way all distances should be measured — in steps from Whiskey Warehouse.

The exterior design is solid.

Literally. The design team wanted to use high-quality, permanent materials to fit in with the rest of the neighborhood and avoid the “cookie-cutter” apartment look that Charlotteans are so vocally (and rightfully) against.

And now let’s walk through a few perks…

Each floor plan has different variations on built-in shelving. Apartments at The Julien are already spacious (from 566-square-foot studios to 1514-square-foot three bedroom), but the maximizing of space for storage makes each one feel even more like a grown-up home — and less like a dorm. Some apartments even have wine fridges/racks built in. Yes.

Floor plans cater to different stages of life.

Caswell, for example, is perfect for a roommate setup with two bedrooms on opposite sides of the space.

Nine foot ceilings, stainless steel appliances, designer LED lighting, roomy washer dryer spaces, and huge walk-in closets.

Oooh bathroom amenities are just fun, aren’t they?

All of the cabinetry at The Julien are soft-close. And you can’t miss the backlit bathroom mirrors.

The community is wired for multiple internet providers, like AT&T, Time Warner Cable and (drumroll) Google Fiber. Now, let’s daydream about the summer.

The private interior courtyard is designed for comfort, relaxation and fostering a community feel for residents. There will be lounge seating, an outdoor kitchen, a water feature and cozy fireplace area for cool nights.

And don’t forget, critical to all apartment life happiness — SWAG.

Residents will be welcomed with a Move In Mule Kit (complete with recipe, simple syrup and vodka). Love.

Levine Properties, the brains (and funds) behind the project, takes pride in never cutting corners or sacrificing quality.

And this project is especially meaningful for all involved. On the hard hat tour, Daniel (Levine) told us Plaza Midwood is a historic area for both the city and the Levine family because it’s like coming home for him.

Daniel’s dad, Al Levine and his two brothers all had their first storefronts, Pic N Pay Shoes, Family Dollar Stores and Sherman’s Ltd. [a men’s clothier] on Central Avenue more than 50 years ago.

At the end of the day, some things are more about a feeling.
