Construction has begun on Avenida Lakewood, a 230-unit rental community for active adults 55 and over, at the corner of Colfax Avenue and Owens Street.

Upon completion, it will have four stories and numerous indoor and outdoor amenities, such as a pool, entertainment rooms, a dog park, patios and grills, garden plots, shuffleboard area and walking trails.

Avenida Lakewood was designed by KTGY Architecture + Planning, an international full-service architecture and planning firm based in California.

The units range in size and include a mix of one- and two-bedroom apartments.

“There is a tremendous demand for more senior housing as our population ages," said Robert D. May, managing partner with Avenida Partners, LLC. “And, by allowing Avenida Lakewood residents to choose which amenities and services they pay for rather than paying for what they don’t use, seniors can make their money go much further.”
