Dobbins Group LLC and Capstone Building Corp. have completed a $43 million apartment development, The Collins, in Louisiana.
Located in New Orleans, The Collins is a 346,539-square-foot, 272-unit apartment community that offers two-story apartment homes with ground-floor private entries, a direct-entry garage and a private patio or balcony. All apartments feature a large kitchen with custom cabinetry and granite countertops, plus the option of one-, two- or three-bedroom units.
“This property features modern top-of-the-line amenities and strikes the perfect balance between luxury and ease,” said David Ball, principal of Dobbins Group LLC.
“The Collins fills a void in the area for those looking for a modern, upscale apartment that’s conveniently located to running trails and the historic downtown Covington area.”
