Holy cow, we were starting to think we'd never see the day when Apex, formerly known as the much-troubled Concerto, opened its doors in South Park. But word from the listing agent is that it will finally, finally start leasing on October 1. The 271-unit building was originally developed by Sonny Astani, but went into a nasty bankruptcy and was finally handed over to Corus Construction Venture in early 2011, who originally planned to open the tower as condos. Word last summer was that it'd open in fall 2011 (with no word on the leasing vs. buying thing), but nothin'. Now with South Park back in the game, it seems like a pretty prime time to debut a new luxury building. Apex offers 12 floor plans ranging from studios to three-bedrooms and from 600 to 2,200 square feet, along with washer/dryers in every unit, 24-hour staff, a lounge, a business center, a sun deck and pool, barbecues, a dog run (with paw-friendly grass!), a fitness center, pet walking, on-site dry cleaning and carwash, and all kinds of other fancy stuff. This is a two-bedroom, two-bathroom model unit (see the floorplan in the gallery).
Here's a bit about the pricing, which is not for the faint of wallet:
Studios start at $2,100
One-bed/one-baths start at $2,300
Two-bed/two-baths start at $3,500
Three-bed penthouses start at $8,000
