sealysThe Avenue concept is the result of a vision for loft-style, urban living shared by husband and wife team, Charlie and Sasha Sealy.

As graduates of Vanderbilt University, Charlie and Sasha’s time in Nashville, TN illustrated to them the appeal of urban living. Their subsequent work experiences in Dallas, TX and Birmingham, AL enriched their understanding of multifamily development and the urban marketplace.

Sasha holds a JD/MBA from Cumberland School of Law. She has worked at Regions Bank and Leadership Huntsville/Madison County. Today, as Vice President of Sealy Property Development, she spends her time managing all aspects of The Avenue project.

Charlie is Vice President of Sealy Management, a family company started in 1955 by his grandfather, Charlie O. Sealy, in Tuscaloosa, AL. Today the company owns and manages 11 apartment communities in Huntsville, and over 9,000 apartments throughout the Southeast. Charlie has worked in multifamily development for thirteen years, building amenity-rich apartment properties that have won honors ranging from local beautification awards to Associated Builders and Contractors and Apartment Association awards.

The couple’s most recent project, 2700 Capitol Park, opened in August of 2014. This mixed-use, urban loft apartment community is located in historic downtown Tuscaloosa. Belk Hudson Lofts opened in September of 2012 in the heart of historic downtown Huntsville. This boutique, urban loft development was named Downtown Huntsville, Inc.’s Project of the Year in January of 2014.
