New apartment complex open house Thursday

Richland's new apartment complex is holding an open house Thursday as part of a grand opening celebration.

Island View Apartments, at 1529 Columbia Park Trail, has 144 one- and two-bedroom apartments.

The open house is from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. Richland Mayor John Fox and the Tri-City Regional Chamber of Commerce will be attending the ribbon-cutting ceremony.

Famous Dave's is catering the event, which is open to the public.

Erik Wessling, community manager, said about half of the apartments are already leased.

Island View Apartments includes six three-story buildings, with 24 units in each building, he said.

There is a clubhouse that includes a big screen TV, free wireless internet, a fitness center, a tanning bed, a hot tub and an outdoor pool, Wessling said.

Tours will be available, along with some move-in specials.
