The Avalyn is an eight-building, luxury multifamily rental community located at Millenia, a master-planned urban village envisioned as South San Diego County’s new city center. The project raises the bar for design and quality of rental properties in the area, with its elegant interiors, contemporary finishes, and top tier amenities available to residents. Reinforcing walkability and connectivity through design, the apartment community offers residents an active and engaging lifestyle with an abundance of onsite amenities and nearby shops and restaurants.
DAHLIN provided interior architecture services including finish specifications, FF&E design, and procurement and installation of all interior and exterior community amenities and offices. Residents enjoy a resort-style pool and spa, a Prohibition-style speakeasy, community working spaces, two rooftop decks, a pickleball court, a community garden, two dog run and wash areas, and a live music studio.
Voluminous spaces maximized with creative uses on mezzanines add depth and character while also allowing for intimate gatherings with enclosed meeting rooms and booths. For the enigmatic crowd, a bookcase at the end of a hallway with a single piece of whimsical art masquerades a speakeasy and music studio, while the mezzanine library exudes the look and feel of a swanky Manhattan lounge. The clubroom lounge and sports bar epitomize the art of layering with illuminated tiered ceiling details, and a mix of textures on walls with meticulously crafted boxed wall design. Residents can challenge friends at the pickleball courts, enjoy the dog park, or break a sweat in the state-of-the-art gym overlooking the infinity-edge pool. Two roof-top decks, equipped with barbecues, pizza ovens, and open-air seating provide the perfect setting to enjoy sunset views.
By volume, The Avalyn is the largest apartment project in San Diego County in 2022, according to CoStar data, and helps fulfill the demand for housing in Chula Vista, which has experienced tremendous growth in the last decade.
