Pasadena, California-based Adept Urban and Octane Group have finished converting a granite office tower near Los Angeles into an eight-story high rise in the first phase of development at Arista Glendale.
The tower in Glendale, California, built in 1985, retains many of the design elements typical of office structures of the time. The wide, angular facade features nearly uniform rows of evenly spaced square windows, which give way to window walls on the upper floors. The new layout retains the building’s two-story lobby and existing retail space, including tenants East West Bank and H&R Block Advisors.
Inside the renovated interior, the 53 Phase I units feature high-end finishes and appliances across floor plans ranging from 751 to 1,957 square feet. They include engineered hardwood flooring, Carrara Marmi marble countertops, soft-close cabinetry and high-end appliances, including Fisher & Paykel appliances in the penthouse units.
Monthly rents range from $3,950 for a two-bedroom, two-bath unit up to $10,900 for penthouse units. All units include nearly floor-to-ceiling windows with views of Burbank Hills to the north and the Los Angeles skyline to the south. Sares Regis Group will serve as property manager.
Amenities in the first phase include a co-working space and conference room, a resident lounge with billiards and a TV, a gourmet kitchen, a fitness center and an outdoor green space. Phase II, built atop an existing parking garage, will add a rooftop pool, spa and outdoor entertaining lounge to the development’s shared amenities. This second building is expected to open early next year, and will bring the property’s total unit count up to 98.
“The city welcomes the addition of Arista, the newest development, to our downtown. Through an adaptive reuse of an existing building, the city is helping add high-quality housing while also ensuring that we maintain the character of our downtown and quality of life that our residents and business have come to expect from our city,” said Ardy Kassakhian, mayor of the city of Glendale, in a press release shared with Multifamily Dive.
