Azure offers next-level amenities and signature design elements in a growing rental housing market
IRVINE, Calif. (November 4, 2020) – MBK Rental Living announced today the grand opening of Azure, a luxury garden-style apartment community focused on exterior amenities in Santa Maria, California. The new lifestyle rental community is comprised of 318 studio and one-, two-, and three-bedroom residences ranging in size from 406 square feet to 1,211 square feet. Virtual tours and leasing are now underway at MBK Rental Living’s premiere Santa Barbara County community, which is adjacent to the new Battles Elementary School, shopping centers, and other outdoor attractions.
“We are thrilled about our newest development which offers luxury features and quality construction to Santa Maria’s thriving market,” said MBK Rental Living President, Craig Jones. “Azure combines rustic style with modern sophistication while providing residents a long list of lifestyle comforts including options for roomy interiors for working from home and extensive, amenity-rich outdoor spaces.”
Residents will enjoy open floor plans with vaulted ceilings, wood-style flooring, wall-controlled ceiling fans, gas ranges, stainless-steel appliances, and quartz countertops as well as technology-ready pre-wired spaces, closets with built-in shelves, covered patios with storage rooms and more. Shared amenities at the new community will include a modern farmhouse-style clubhouse with entertainment kitchen, two resort-style swimming pools surrounded by covered cabanas and firepits, two spas, an outdoor ping pong table, horseshoe pit, traditional and Santa Maria-style barbeque grills, a 24-hour fitness center, futsal sports court, bocce ball court, two playgrounds, dog park and pet spa, business center and more.
Located on 14.5 acres at 703 E. Meehan Street, Azure is surrounded by nearby shopping including the new Enos Ranch shopping center, Costco, Lowe’s, Best Buy, Kohl’s, Target, Trader Joe’s, Walmart and Office Depot. Dining options in close proximity include In-N-Out Burger, Buffalo Wild Wings, and many popular restaurants serving famous Santa Maria-style barbecue. Residents will also benefit from quick access to U.S. Route 101 leading to Santa Barbara, San Luis Obispo, Los Padres National Forest, Solvang, Los Olivos, and nearby beaches.
According to the California Department of Finance and the U.S. Census Bureau, Santa Maria has grown roughly 40.1 percent over the last 19 years, surpassing Santa Barbara as the county’s largest city1. The population expansion has city and business leaders focused on facilitating new housing developments needed to support that growth.
“Azure will provide new apartments in a market where quality of life and new jobs are attracting new residents, but where move-up rental housing is in short supply,” Jones said. “This luxury lifestyle community will appeal to residents of all ages, from young professionals and growing families to empty nesters.”
