Santa Cruz, Swenson, Live Oak Crossing

Leasing is now open for residential one- and two-bedroom units and commercial units

June 16, 2020, Santa Cruz, CA – SWENSON, a leading Northern California real estate development company, announced they have completed construction on Live Oak Crossing, a 15,000 square foot mixed-use community at 1135 17th Avenue in Santa Cruz. Leasing is now open for the thirteen one- and two-bedroom units (555 to 677 square feet), as well as seven commercial units (598 to 1,718 square feet).

“Live Oak Crossing offers fresh retail space designed with local small business owners in mind, just minutes from the beach and Santa Cruz harbor,” said Jeff Huff, Project Manager for SWENSON. “A mix of small and medium retail/office spaces are available. Each space comes with finished walls, lighting, and a private restroom.”

Enhancing the neighborhood vitality of this formerly blighted corner, Live Oak Crossing brings exciting retail and modern apartments to the community. Street frontage first floor retail at the prominent Live Oak intersection—including a corner retail unit ideal for a café or deli doing take-out—provides new options for neighborhood-serving businesses. While residents of Live Oak Crossing will experience modern living in a 1- or 2-bedroom apartment, featuring vaulted ceilings, in-unit laundry, and designer kitchens with stainless steel appliances. The bright, open concept layouts can accommodate a variety of lifestyles. And with a high walkability number, the second-floor apartment rentals offer easy access to Upper Santa Cruz Harbor and Arana Gulch bike trails and open space preserve.
