Shea Apartments Goes Smoke-Free to Promote Healthy Living

Posted By Heather Rusick on 1/10/17 9:01 AM


As of Jan. 1, 2017, all 21 properties in the Shea Apartments portfolio will transition to 100% smoke-free communities. The wellness initiative is part of our company’s commitment to providing a completely healthy living environment for its residents.

The anti-smoking movement has been gathering steam across the county since second-hand smoke was declared a risk more than a decade ago. With state and local governments restricting smoking in the workplace and many other outdoor public areas, attention is now shifting to the multi-family housing industry.

“Shea continues to be a progressive leader in property management and our transition to smoke-free environments at all our properties is another example of our commitment to the health and safety of our residents,” said Yunmi Martin, Senior Vice President Shea Apartments.

Shea’s newest apartments, including Ascent, Reata Oakbrook Village, Vantis and 88 at Alhambra Place in California and Apex Meridian, Lucent Blvd., Monaco Row, Vela Meridian and Zenith Meridian in Colorado, opened as 100% smoke-free communities. The remaining 12 properties will gradually be converted into smoke-free communities as leases for smoking units signed prior to the transition expire.
