ANAHEIM, CA-Sares-Regis Group has unveiled a new 312-unit apartment complex called the Crossing that comes with a restriction that is aimed to make it healthier for residents: The Crossing is a no-smoking complex. The smoke-free environment is part of the overall emphasis on green design at the complex, which is a candidate for LEED Silver certification, according to Irvine-based Sares-Regis.

Designed by KTGY Group, Inc. Architecture and Planning, the Crossing is adjacent the Metrolink Anaheim Canyon Station, at 3530 E. La Palma Ave., near North Tustin Avenue. Michael Bissell, president of the Sares Regis Group’s multifamily property management division, calls the new complex “the most environmentally advanced community we’ve developed.” He says that the company set out to develop a green, premium, resort-like apartment community and was well into construction when it decided, based on internal research, that the complex also should be smoke-free.

Bissell said new residents at the Crossing are attracted by the combination of the property’s greenness as well as its easy access to transportation corridors, key job centers, shopping, dining and entertainment. Leasing began last fall and the first residents began moving in last December as the first phase of apartment homes was completed. Since then, 118 apartments have been leased out of the 180 completed to date.
