A resort-style lobby area, covered parking deck, and ride-share waiting area further enhance the Lake House by Alta experience for residents.

Pre-leasing has begun at Lake House by Alta and units will be available in December 2019. The community’s 299 units are a combination of studio, one-, two- and three-bedroom floor plans.
