Once complete, Alta Town Center will offer 336 apartment homes comprised of one-, two- and three-bedroom floor plans. While priced at attainable levels, all homes will feature sophisticated urban accents and high-end finishes including stainless steel appliances, granite countertops, tile backsplash, in-unit washer and dryer sets, and wide-plank flooring throughout.

Alta Town Center will also cater to residents with a wide range of attractive community amenities including a resort-style pool and courtyard, outdoor grilling and lounge areas, outdoor fitness equipment, and an on-site pet park and pet spa. Inside the community club house, residents will have access to a state-of-the-art fitness center, coworking spaces, and ample room for socializing with other residents within the hospitality bar and game room.
