LMC, a Lennar company, has begun leasing units at Luma, a 220-unit luxury high-rise and mixed-use apartment community in the Little Italy neighborhood of San Diego. The 24-story building is LEED gold certified and features 4,344 square feet of ground-floor retail space.

Located at 1440 Columbia St. in downtown San Diego, within walking distance to several dining options, Luma offers smart home technology for residents, including LMC’s Dream Suite by Lutron package, which lets residents control lights, roller shades and Nest Wi-Fi thermostats from their phone.

The community is a short walk from Waterfront Park, within 1 mile of the Gas Lamp Quarter, and offers easy access to interstates 5, 8 and Highway 163. The property offers a mix of studio, one-, two- and three-bedroom apartments, as well as a select number of penthouse units. Community amenities include a rooftop pool and spa, outdoor theater, fitness center, pet park, and bike storage.

“The Little Italy neighborhood is one of the most distinctive in the nation, whether it’s the breathtaking views of the waterfront or the always bustling sidewalks and patios,” said Ryan Gatchalian, division president of Southern California for LMC, in prepared remarks. “We’re thrilled to join one of San Diego’s most desirable neighborhoods, and we believe Luma will complement the area’s vibrant energy and provide a top-tier downtown living experience.”

Last month, LMC opened Axle, a 226-unit luxury community in Seattle that is pursuing LEED Gold certification.
