Abbot Manor is a three-story, garden-style community that consists of a strategic mix of studio, one, two, three, and four-bedroom apartments, totaling 49 bedrooms within a 28-unit complex. The building was constructed in 1972 and has seen two recent major renovations; in 2007, $1.2 million was invested to convert lower level offices into apartment units, and in 2016 another $375,000 was invested for capital improvements to major building systems and unit upgrades. These recent capital improvements included roof replacement, parking lot resurfacing, sewer line replacement, and extensive unit and common area upgrades.
The community is very well located with high visibility and frontage on busy Abbot Road, within a few blocks of both downtown East Lansing and MSU’s campus. Notably the property sits on the Capital Area Transportation Authority (CATA) bus route, the local mass transit provider. Being so close to campus and downtown ensures permanent demand, as proven by historical occupancy of virtually 100%. Downtown East Lansing offers over 180 retailers, restaurants and bars, providing nearby entertainment for residents.
