Comparing the Hillbrook and the Blairs seems like a bit of a red herring. The Hillbrook is 1.2 miles from the SS Metro- the blairs range from across the street to 0.3 miles from the metro. The Hillbrook has a walk score of 53 ("somewhat walkable"), while the Blairs range from 83-88 ("very walkable"). The Blairs are also near numerous bus lines, while the Hillbrook is not.

In short: location, location, location. The Blairs are in a great location, so they think that by investing in upgrading their facilities, they will be able to get people to pay higher rents (and they are succeeding). The Hillbrook doesnt think that people will pay enough to live in their less desirable location, so its not worth it for them to invest in improved amenities.
