San Francisco, CA (January 15, 2019) – Greystar, a global leader in the investment, development and management of multifamily housing, has announced the near term completion of six new residential projects three in Northern California and three in Seattle. The introduction of these new residential projects responds to an increasing demand for housing in the Bay Area and Seattle, two markets that have continued to see employment outpace housing.

“We are pleased to be either leasing or nearing completion on three new communities in Northern California and three new communities in the Pacific Northwest. These projects will provide over 1,000 units of new housing in vibrant locations that are proximate to transit, jobs and retail space. It has been a pleasure working with the cities of Seattle, Mountain View and Redwood City to bring these new communities to life,” said Ali Warner, Managing Director of Greystar, Northern California and Pacific Northwest.

In the Bay Area, Greystar currently has three active projects underway, which include:

  • Elan Mountain View: Currently in lease-up, Elan Mountain View features 164 luxury apartments on the corner of Castro Street and El Camino in Mountain View. With 10,000 square feet of retail space, including a Peet’s coffee and Mediterranean restaurant Rose Market, the property is walking distance to the retailers on Castro street as well as the Mountain View Caltrain and VTA line.
