More Than 1,500 Attend Grand Opening of Los Olivos Apartment Village

A record-breaking 1,500 apartment seekers enjoyed a day of festivities and prizes Saturday at the grand opening of Los Olivos Apartment Village, Orange County’s newest apartment community set amid tranquil coastal hills and the vibrancy of Irvine Spectrum Center.

The turnout set a record for an Irvine Company Apartment Communities (ICAC) grand opening, as guests at the five-hour event basked in food, music and activities and previewed the new community’s neighborhood setting.

“The turnout is testament to the unique location and living experience that Los Olivos Apartment Village has to offer,” said Kevin Baldridge, President of ICAC. “It reflects the growing demand for a variety of housing in Irvine, including apartments that feel like living in a home.”

A few lucky guests at Saturday’s grand opening were awarded prizes including six months free rent, $250 Irvine Spectrum Center gift cards, an iPad mini and a stay at The Resort at Pelican Hill.

Los Olivos features a blend of apartment styles and floor plans in stunning early California architecture. The community features a 3-acre central park, a walking trail alongside coastal hills, a resort-style pool complex with two side-by-side Junior Olympic pools, luxe clubhouses and views of the Irvine Spectrum.

The first phase of Los Olivos began leasing Sunday. The community’s first residents are expected to start moving this month. Upon completion in late 2014, the nearly 100-acre community will include 1,750 apartments.

The new apartment homes at Los Olivos, located near Irvine Center Drive and the San Diego (I-405) Freeway, range from 525 square feet for a one-bedroom, one-bath to 1,207 square feet for a two-bedroom, 2.5-bath plus a den.

The Los Olivos Village Apartment Homes leasing office is at 350 Gitano, Irvine, and can be reached by calling (949) 988-3400. Directions: from I-405 south, exit Irvine Center Drive, turn right. Turn right at Antivo, continue to Gitano.
