Housing Watch: New apartment complex opens in Fresno's Tower District

FRESNO, Calif. (KFSN) -- A new mural lets you know you have arrived at "The District," a new complex featuring 18 one-bedroom apartments.

When work started on the project a year ago, a waiting list quickly formed because people kept stopping by to ask when the units would be ready.

"We got a lot of inquiries at the time," says Granville Homes CEO Darius Assemi. "We knew there was a pent-up demand. I wish we had built up more units on that property but we wanted to make sure everybody had an attached garage."

Assemi says the location of the complex made it very attractive to many people who either work downtown or visit this area to grab a bite or enjoy a night out with friends.

"Right on the eastern edge of the Tower District," he said. "Walking distance to a lot of fantastic amenities in the Tower District and of course, close to Fresno City College as well."

The smallest units measure 762 square feet and start at $1650 a month They include stainless steel appliances.

When the apartments first became available a few weeks ago, they didn't last long.

"It filled up pretty quickly," Assemi said. "Within a week, all 18 units were leased out."

The complex is being prepared for its grand opening celebration.

Assemi says this is the first new multi-unit project to be built in the Tower District in over a decade.
