Esperanza at Duarte Station offers next-level amenities and great access to countless L.A. metro attractions

IRVINE, Calif. (October 13, 2022) – MBK Rental Living, one of California’s most successful and innovative private developers, announced today that pre-leasing is underway at Esperanza at Duarte Station, a new Class A 344-unit, five-story apartment community located in the Los Angeles County submarket of Duarte. Model tours are being held by appointment for those on the interest list before being opened to the public. These studio, one-, two-, and three-bedroom apartment homes are 11 miles from downtown Pasadena and 22 miles from downtown Los Angeles along the vibrant Interstate I-210 corridor. Located on 4.3 acres at the intersection of Fasana and Highland Avenue, Esperanza is adjacent to the Duarte/City of Hope Metro Gold Line Station and will offer residents luxury living with 12 floor plans ranging from 514 to 1,090 square feet, as well as a seven-and-a-half story parking structure.

“As our growth continues throughout California, we are excited to extend our presence once more in Los Angeles County in the area of Duarte where MBK Rental Living will offer high-quality, luxury flats with expansive amenities that were designed for how our residents live,” said Ken McCarren, President of MBK Rental Living. “We look forward to providing additional opportunities for renters to live in our sustainably designed homes.”

Residents will enjoy unique rooftop amenities with dramatic views of the San Gabriel mountains, including a resort-style pool and spa; an indoor/outdoor casita with a living room lounge, fireplace, open dining room, and entertainers-style kitchen; a landscaped roof deck with poolside cabanas, outdoor TVs with entertainers’ bar, grilling stations, fire pit and lounge area; and a rooftop gimnasio with free weights, cardio and HIIT zones, and outdoor yoga.

Esperanza’s first-level amenities include the leasing area and café bar, a co-working area with open seating, and a cantina with lounge and counter seating with direct access to Food Truck Alley. Other common area community amenities will include outdoor entertainment, BBQ spaces, and multiple open spaces including a linear park that runs the entire length of the community. The future “casa de perro” will consist of an interior pet wash and dry station as well as an exterior dog park with seating.

Esperanza is located within walking distance of the world-renowned City of Hope, a 120-acre comprehensive cancer treatment center and major area employer that is currently expanding. Residents will have easy access to Trader Joe’s, Target, Starbucks, Walmart, and other major retail and entertainment options as well as dining offerings. The apartment community is also situated near historic Route 66, the historic towns of Monrovia and Bradbury, and numerous hiking trails along the San Gabriel Mountains.

“We have elevated the amenities with this community to mirror the lifestyles of its residents by designing high-end facilities including pocket parks in the courtyards, a landscaped rooftop, and open floor plan designs that will attract a diverse array of residents, from professionals and families to empty nesters and students along with a special emphasis on frontline workers at the City of Hope,” said McCarren. “At the same time, there are even more reasons to rent given the current macro-economic environment of rising interest rates.”

Esperanza at Duarte Station is a joint venture of MBK Rental Living and Haseko Corporation with construction financing provided by Principal Real Estate Investors. The project partners are construction manager R.D. Olson Construction, Architects Orange, PBA Structural Engineers, MJS Landscape, and property manager Greystar.

The community’s first move-ins are anticipated to take place late Fall 2022. The Grand Opening is scheduled for Jan./Feb. 2023. For more information, please visit
