Dallas-based Mill Creek Residential Trust has broken ground on a 7-story, luxury apartment building in downtown San Diego’s East Village.

Modera at 14th and K streets will feature 368 units in studio, 1- and 2-bedroom configurations in three different architectural styles.

Amenities will include two outdoor courtyards, a 5,100-square-foot sky lounge with pool and spa, a fitness studio, co-working spaces, a bowling lounge, a dog run and controlled-access subterranean garage parking.

“San Diego is rapidly becoming one of the most pedestrian-friendly cities on the West Coast, and the East Village is transforming into a destination locale for new residents,” said John Colletti, vice of president of development in Southern California for Mill Creek.

“We’re thrilled to add this community to the neighborhood’s robust entertainment, retail, restaurant and cultural amenities, and we believe Modera San Diego will address the market’s booming growth while serving as a premier housing option in the area,” he added.

Initial move-ins are projected for spring 2021.

Mill Creek has developed apartment communities in 73 markets nationwide with over 19,400 apartment homes open or under construction.
