Resmark Apartment Living, a division of The Resmark Companies, Westfield Company and Greystar recently celebrated the official grand opening of 56 North, a new luxury apartment community, in Phoenix. An opening reception was recently held to unveil the new community and raise funds for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. The 344-unit apartment community is located in the desirable Desert Ridge area, just north of the Loop 101, at 21021 North 56th Street.

Over 200 guests attended the grand opening and enjoyed live music by Urban Electric and specialty foods and refreshments provided by local restaurateurs Bourbon Jacks and Modern Margarita.  A silent auction and raffle prizes combined with a charitable donation from 56 North raised more than $6000 for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.

“We are proud to have the opportunity to help raise funds and increase awareness of blood cancer,” said Heather Jones, Regional Property Manager for Greystar. “The grand opening of 56 North brought together our residents, local community and area businesses for a good cause.”
