Elan Menlo Park – Residents Can Bike To Work And Hike Afterward


August 29, 2017

MENLO PARK, CA—Luxury apartment community, Elan Menlo Park, is nearly complete and has begun leasing. Developed by CityView and Greystar, the transit-proximate multifamily development is located at 3645 Haven Ave. near major employers, restaurants, shopping, services, medical and education. In addition to the 146 luxury apartment homes, the apartment community features more than 17,000 square feet of indoor/outdoor amenity space for residents, according to KTGY Architecture + Planning.

Elan Menlo Park’s general contractor is JS Builders. The interior designer is Parisi Portfolio. The landscape architect is MPA Design. KTGY is the project’s designer.

“Elan Menlo Park is just minutes to the Dumbarton Bridge, Bayshore 101 Freeway and Facebook’s campus and only 10 minutes to downtown Menlo Park, Palo Alto or Redwood City,” according to Jessica Musick, associate principal at KTGY. “Residents can bike to work and it’s only a four-minute walk to the Marsh Road Shuttle. When work is over, residents can enjoy the great trail system located adjacent to Elan Menlo Park.”

Elan Menlo Park’s design was conceived as a series of six interactively connected garden-style apartments relating to a central amenity area, says Musick. The three-story amenity building includes a spacious open-area community lounge, game room areas, fitness center, viewing deck, and a leasing and administrative office.

Residences will be available in one, two and three bedrooms ranging in size from 715 to 1,249 square feet of living space. The homes have gourmet kitchens with custom islands, quartz countertops with under-mount sinks, glass-tiled backsplashes, European cabinetry and stainless-steel appliances. Floor plans incorporate features such as abundant windows, pendant lighting, air conditioning, spacious walk-in closets, and full-size washers and dryers.

“The basis of the appeal of the property is the central location offering easy access to major employers, restaurants, shopping, services, medical, education and transit,” Musick tells GlobeSt.com. “The location also offers easy access to a vibrant downtown scene with art and music on the square, plus unique restaurants, cafes, bistros, bakeries and shops. Residents can also enjoy nearby recreation such as hiking, outdoor sports and the adjacent bike trail system along the water.”

Community amenities include a club-quality fitness center, a resident lounge and large interior courtyards with Wi-Fi, bike storage and maintenance stations, automated package delivery system, and a saltwater pool and spa. It will also have an outdoor area with fire pits, barbecue grills and TVs, and a pet area that measures roughly 50 feet by 10 feet. In addition to covered parking for residents, select apartment homes have an attached garage.

“The project brings an exciting new residential community to this burgeoning area of Menlo Park that will also feature Anton Menlo, a 394-unit apartment community at 3639 Haven Ave., and a new 195-unit apartment home community at 777 Hamilton,” noted Musick. “All three projects are designed by KTGY and will help alleviate some of the demand for housing in this area.”
