New 146-unit Luxury Apartment Community Opens in Menlo Park

OAKLAND, Calif. – International award-winning firm KTGY Architecture + Planning is pleased to announce that Elan Menlo Park, a 146-unit luxury apartment community in Menlo Park, Calif., is nearly complete and has begun leasing. Developed by CityView and Greystar, Elan Menlo Park is a contemporary-designed apartment community located at 3645 Haven Avenue, near major employers, restaurants, shopping, services, medical, education and transit. In addition to the 146 luxury apartment homes, the apartment community features over 17,000 square feet of indoor/outdoor amenity space for residents.

According to Jessica Musick, associate principal at KTGY, “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. 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 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, said Musick. “The prominent three-story amenity building includes a spacious open-area community lounge, game room areas, fitness center, viewing deck, and a leasing and administrative office. The amenity spaces have a visual connection to the outdoor swimming pool and deck, and views to the community green space. The central driveway provides access to the project’s amenity building which serves as a bold backdrop for the arrival sequence,” Musick commented.

Residences will be available in one, two- and three-bedrooms ranging in size from 715 to 1,249 square feet of living space. The well-appointed apartment 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 wood-style plank flooring, abundant windows for natural light, pendant lighting, air conditioning, spacious walk-in closets and in-home full-size washers and dryers.

“In addition to modern finishes within each home, Elan Menlo Park offers a unique collection of amenities, a component that we have seen our community-seeking residents crave,” said Andrew Morcos, development manager at Greystar. “We sought to develop a place where convenience and luxury go hand in hand, and we have already seen an exciting response to the offerings at Elan Menlo Park.”

Community amenities include a club-quality fitness center, a resident lounge and large landscaped interior courtyards with Wi-Fi, bike storage and maintenance stations, automated package delivery system, and a resort-inspired 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.

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.

“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 Avenue, and a new 195-unit apartment home community at 777 Hamilton. All three projects are designed by KTGY and will help meet some of the demand for housing in this area,” noted Musick.
