Alta North Central offers a sophisticated lifestyle with well-appointed amenities that are unmatched in the market. The community exudes an old Phoenix charm, nestled in a popular neighborhood booming with new eateries and nightlife, while being in close proximity to economic hubs in the Central Corridor, Midtown, Downtown, and The Biltmore areas of Phoenix.

“Alta North Central provides a Class-A experience to a submarket that has not seen luxury rental housing in several decades,” said Clay Richardson, Managing Director for Wood Partners. “Phoenix’s economy continues to grow, and the prime location of Alta North Central provides residents with unparalleled access to these nearby job opportunities while living in a classic Phoenix neighborhood.”

In its location at 777 E. Stella Lane, Alta North Central is a short commute to major employers. Both Grand Canyon University and the Arizona State University-Downtown Phoenix Campus are also nearby, as is the city’s light rail line, which connects to major entertainment centers – including Talking Stick Resort Arena and Downtown Phoenix – as well as Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport.

Alta North Central’s resort-style amenities make it easy to enjoy indoor-outdoor living year-round. Outdoor spaces include an exceptionally furnished outdoor upper-level deck, an outdoor patio with a gaming area, grill station, putting green, and a private dog park. Residents can cool down or relax in the swimming pool that features a tanning deck and an in-water seating and spa, with seasonal poolside service from the on-site café. The 2,300 sq ft, 24/7 fitness center features Precor equipment including cardio theater technology, TRX systems and a separate yoga studio.

Alta North Central’s on-site café provides residents with the benefits of a local coffeehouse without having to leave the building, as well as the poolside service during the hotter months.

Wood Partners Announces Groundbreaking of Alta Buena Vista in Alameda

Newswire – December 16, 2019. Wood Partners, a national leader in multi-family real estate development and acquisition, announced earlier today the groundbreaking of its newest luxury residential community – Alta Buena Vista – on Alameda Island in California.

Alta Buena Vista, a 372-unit luxury mixed-use project on the island’s northern waterfront, is the first market-rate apartment development in more than 40 years on Alameda Island. The 10-acre community will blend the old and new, mixing the existing six-acre historic brick Del Monte Warehouse – built in the 1920s – with new apartments and retail spaces designed by BAR Architects. Alta Buena Vista will be the largest budgeted development in Wood Partners’ 20-year history.

“The Alta Buena Vista site at the Del Monte Warehouse is a historic opportunity for Wood Partners, paying homage to the history of Alameda,” said Julia Wilk, Managing Director for Wood Partners. “With the lack of any market rate apartment development on the island, so close to the region’s employment centers, we’re confident that Alta Buena Vista will offer a wonderful blend of small island community with easy access to everything the Bay Area has to offer.”

Located at 1501 Buena Vista Avenue, the site is a short distance to the Alameda Ferry Terminal, providing direct service to Downtown San Francisco’s Financial District and to AC-Transit connections to BART, Downtown Oakland and across the Bay Bridge to San Francisco. I-880, connecting cities across the East Bay and Oakland, is right off the island via tunnel or bridge. Downtown Oakland has seen a booming commercial market recently, with many high-profile companies moving jobs and operations to the East Bay area.

Once completed, residents of Alta Buena Vista will have access to a wide range of retail, restaurant and grocery options nearby. The Park Street and Webster Street corridors offer cafes, dining and nightlife, in addition to numerous boutique stores. Just across the estuary is Oakland’s up-and-coming Jack London Square, a vibrant hub of restaurants, entertainment, outdoor recreation and community events.

Alta Buena Vista will offer a range of amenities including a well-appointed fitness center, resident lounge, multiple roof decks and 11,000 square feet of ground-floor retail space. The community is expected to open in early 2022, featuring studio, one- and two-bedroom apartment floor plans, as well as two- and three-bedroom townhomes.

Residents will have immediate access to 2,400 acres of open space in Lakewood’s second largest park. The community offers incredible views of the Denver skyline, immediate access to major employment centers, convenient access to an active lifestyle, and the ability to readily escape into the mountains.”

Alta Green Mountain provides convenient access to a number of major roadways, including Interstate 70, Highway 285, C-470, and 6th Avenue, quickly connecting residents to downtown Denver and job centers across Denver’s west side, as well as to the nearby mountains.

The new community is a short distance from the Denver Federal Center, the largest concentration of federal agencies outside of Washington, D.C., with more than 6,200 employees at 26 agencies. Belmar, a mixed-use, open-air lifestyle mall with 800,000 square feet of office space and a large number of retail outlets is four miles from the property down West Alameda Avenue, offering many employment, dining and entertainment options. Safeway, Whole Foods, Natural Grocers and Sprouts provide a full complement of grocery stores nearby.

Alta Green Mountain is just blocks from Green Mountain Park and its hiking and bike trails, and is seven miles from the world-famous Red Rocks Amphitheater. Additionally, the community features expansive on-site outdoor amenities including a year-round pool and spa, indoor/outdoor clubhouse, central green space, a communal fire pit and other exterior gathering areas.

Alta Green Mountain has a number of other resort-style amenities, including keyless entries, a double-height fitness space, co-working spaces, community game room and an outdoor kitchen with a dining area. The community is pet friendly, offering a dog wash and on-site dog run.

The apartment homes offer high-end finishes including granite countertops, faux wood-plank flooring, 42-inch kitchen cabinets and stainless steel appliances, plus the convenience of in-unit washers and dryers. Several units feature views of the mountains or the Denver skyline.

Alta Green Mountain offers 260 units, each with a private balcony, in one-, two- and three-bedroom floor plans. The community’s 10 buildings sit at different heights across the property, providing favorable views from the apartments and creating an appealing community aesthetic near the foothills.
