Shea Properties and Ivanho Cambridge Begin Construction on ASCENT, a 650-Unit Apartment Community in San Jos


Project breaks ground to build new luxury community, including spacious amenities and modern architecture

Aliso Viejo (I-Newswire) December 6, 2013 - Shea Properties and Ivanho Cambridge announced today that construction is underway on ASCENT, a 650-unit luxury apartment community featuring one- to three-bedroom residences with high-end finishes throughout and market- leading amenities for its residents. The community, which represents an investment of more than US$ 200 million, is anticipated to open in San Jos by spring 2015.

ASCENT brings a new level of resort-style living to San Jos, said Greg Anderson, Senior Vice President of Multi-Family Acquisitions and Development for Shea Properties. The area is extremely competitive, as there are so many large employers. In order for us to attract renters to our community, we need to offer something more compelling.

For his part, Sylvain Fortier, Executive Vice President, Residential, Hotels and Real Estate Investment Funds, Ivanho Cambridge added: Were very proud to bring ASCENT to life in a market we strongly believe in and in which we have invested significantly over the past two years. It allows us to diversify our rental offering in Silicon Valley. Like Shea Properties, our well-established expert partner in high-end real estate in the U.S., we believe ASCENT will redefine luxury living in the region.

With a focus on outdoor entertainment, the community will include a luxurious, resort-style, saltwater pool and spa, courtyard kitchens featuring professional appliances, BBQ stations, an authentic pizza oven, a comprehensive fitness center, a yoga courtyard, and a sprawling park with more than one acre of space for residents to enjoy.

Located in South San Jos, ASCENT is one of the many projects underway in the area. The Village Oaks neighborhood retail center, featuring big-box retailers Target and Safeway, is being built directly across the street and is scheduled to open late 2014. The development is also within walking distance of the Cottle Light Rail Station and close to the 85 and 101 freeways.

ASCENT is close to employers, shopping, dining and entertainment venues, and it offers a lifestyle of convenience and luxury to its renters, added Mr. Anderson.

Scheduled to begin leasing in 2015, ASCENT will feature luxury units ranging from 65 m2 (700 sq.ft.) for a one bedroom to 130 m2 (1,400 sq.ft.) for a three-bedroom unit. The homes will include mid-century modern influenced architecture, quartz countertops, deluxe stainless steel appliances and premier flooring, cabinetry and fine finishes throughout.
