Budget: 4 Million
An older, yet well-located apartment community in Long Beach, CA, Alvista Apartments was purchased by Phoenix Realty Group (PRG) in late 2011 due to its attractive upside potential. Working closely with the architectural firm of Studio One Eleven, JDC was charged with returning the 237-unit complex in Anaheim Park Estates back to its mid-twentieth century architectural style, which had been severely compromised over the years by a series of inappropriate makeovers.
