Latest update: The Buckeye Plantation Open House set for this Saturday has been cancelled.
Residents of the former Buckeye Plantation apartments were met with quite the surprise as they left their apartment homes and were greeted with a sign at the entrance bearing a new name.
“They should have told us this was coming” was the tone during conversations with several residents.
According to a letter fixed to the front door of each apartment, “We are pleased to announce that as of Wednesday, July 31st, 2019, your apartment community was purchased and First Communities Management has been selected to manage the new Latitude at Richmond Hill. We would like to take this opportunity to introduce ourselves. First Communities is a management company that has been managing residential communities throughout the United States for over 40 years.”
According to Google, First Communities Management has a rating of 2.8 out of a possible 5.0 stars.
Latitude at Richmond Hill will require all residents to provide proof of at least $100,000 in liability coverage by September 1st, 2019.
Buckeye Plantation was set to hold an open house this Saturday where the public could tour apartments & amenities, meet Richmond Hill City Council members, and enjoy free pizza & drinks.
Richmond Hill 411 was unable to reach Latitude at Richmond Hill to ask if the open house was still happening or for any further comments.
