The Promenade at Summit
Mike Vollero likes to live in style. So when the time came to find a new place to live, the young professional began searching for luxury single-family homes to rent. But when Vollero was introduced to The Promenade at Summit, Diversified Properties’ mixed-use, luxury apartment community in Union County, N.J., he quickly changed his mind. Taken by the community’s condo-level finishes, prime location and great lifestyle offering, Vollero discovered that The Promenade is far superior to the average rental community. In fact, he was so eager to move into The Promenade, Vollero is now the very first resident to occupy the community.

Q: My son, his wife and 3-year-old are moving in with us for a while (due to the economy), and we are looking for ways to give each family as much privacy as possible.
We have two spare bedrooms, but we will need to share the common spaces like the kitchen and dining area — which can be dicey because my European-born husband likes to eat late (around 9), while the baby needs to be fed and in bed before then.
