Elan Menlo Park is a 146-unit luxury apartment community nearing completion in Menlo Park, Calif. The KTGY-designed community is located near major employers, restaurants, shopping, services, hospitals, schools, and public transportation.

The community was designed as a series of six connected garden-style apartments surrounding a central amenity area. Many of the community’s amenities are located in a three-story amenity building that includes an open-area community lounge, game room areas, a fitness center, a viewing deck, and a leasing and administrative office. These indoor amenity spaces all have a visual connection to the outdoor swimming pool and deck and the community green space. Additional amenities include bike storage and maintenance stations, an automated package delivery system, and fire pits and grills.

Residences will be available in one-, two-, and three-bedroom units that range in size from 715 to 1,249-sf. The apartments feature gourmet kitchens with custom islands, quartz countertops with under mount sinks, glass-tiled backsplashes, European cabinetry, stainless steel appliances, and full-size washers and dryers.

JS Builders is the project’s general contractor, Parisi Portfolio is the interior designer, and MPA Design is the landscape architect.
