Milpitas, CA, October 03, 2012 --( Construction is underway at Apex, a new, modern apartment community anticipated to open in Milpitas in Spring 2013.

“Apex is a brand-new community unlike any rental opportunities in the region,” said Suzanne Maddalon, Executive Vice President for Lyon Communities. “The resort-style amenities include a rooftop pool and spa, outdoor entertainment area with TV wall, fitness center and game rooms. They will be unmatched in the area and provide an upscale living experience that meets the demands of discerning Silicon Valley renters.”

The community is within walking distance to the light rail Great Mall station, and close to Highways 880, 680 and 237.

Scheduled to begin leasing in early 2013, Apex is just blocks from the second-largest retail mall in the region, The Great Mall of the Bay Area, which offers more than 1 million square feet of shopping, dining and entertainment options. Additional grocery stores and a big box retailer, Costco, are located near the community as well.

Apex will feature 366 apartment homes ranging from approximately 581 to 1,450 square feet. The homes will include modern, open floorplans with 9-foot ceilings, gourmet kitchens with stainless steel appliances, modern Caesarstone countertops and European style cabinetry, designer fixtures and hardware, oversized tubs in most floorplans, in-home washers and dryers, abundant storage space and will be high-speed data ready.

Club Apex provides residents with an array of rooftop amenities that are an instant escape from the day’s hectic pace. Those include a luxurious resort-style pool and spa with multiple lounging areas and private cabanas, outdoor entertainment area with TV wall, a state-of-the-art fitness center, a movie theater, billiards and game room, a gourmet demonstration kitchen and Wi-Fi café. Additional community amenities include multiple courtyard parks with barbeques, picnic and entertainment areas; a group of e-business centers, a yoga/pilates studio and a pet grooming spa.
