Luxury At Lafayette
Built in 1907, the former Lafayette elementary school was named for a French aristocrat and military officer who fought in the American Revolutionary War. It opened to initial excitement and educational opportunity, but faded out of use as it neared its centennial. Classes were dismissed for the final time in 2004, and Advantes saw new promise within the light-filled classrooms, wide hallways, and libraries.
Now, 36 luxury apartments call this historic structure home, and residents can experience the travertine entrance, broad staircases and maple-floored hallways anew. Each unit features modern amenities such as stainless appliances and quartz countertops, along with the novel character and noteworthy story of the structure.
