New Sunrise Management Community will Seek LEED Silver

Green apartment asset debuts in area where residents are hungry for new product.

Sun_The QuarryLa Mesa, Calif.—A brand new, green apartment community just reached completion.

The Quarry, located on 1.6 acres at 4330 Palm Ave. across from a neighborhood park, was developed by Silvergate Development LLC as the managing partner of Palm Terrace La Mesa Partners LLC.

Sunrise Management recently took over management of the $14 million, 60-unit, three-building community next to both La Mesa Village and the San Diego Trolley Station. Move-ins started earlier this month.

Sustainable features of the new community include photo-voltaic solar panels, increased insulation, energy efficient double-paned windows, and LED lighting and natural spring water for irrigation.

“The developer, Silvergate Development LLC, has always been focused on sustainability—as well as high quality, functional, forward thinking design—and had budgeted for the property’s many sustainable features. Our goal here is to get LEED silver certified,” Sunrise Management president and CEO Joe Greenblatt told MHN.

The community will feature one- and two-bedroom floorplans with stainless steel appliances, granite counter tops, vaulted ceilings and upgraded flooring, as well as an elevated courtyard with a barbecue and parking with carports.

The property highlights contemporary urban style architecture designed by Tanner Hecht Architecture. Construction was directed by Highland Partnership Inc.

“The city of La Mesa is a great place to live—it has a definitive neighborhood flavor, with colorful, family run shops; antique stores; a historic district and a booming restaurant scene,” Greenblatt told MHN. “As a result, it is attracting a younger demographic—emerging as a popular and affordable alternative to San Diego’s more expensive urban neighborhoods. Also, new development here is very limited and residents are hungry for new product.”

The Quarry is situated near all conveniences of the village of La Mesa and is within the La Mesa-Spring Valley School District.
