Since construction began last year on the 500,000-square-foot building at 101 S. Ellwood Ave., Focus Development LLC principal Shaffin Jetha has marketed the apartments as luxury units priced at a more affordable range than buildings developed near the harbor. Jetha said Tuesday that 600-square-foot “quasi-studio” units will start at $1,200 per month and the highest price will be $2,300 for a 1,450-square-foot two-bedroom, two-story unit with a loft, a den and two bathrooms.

The PPNA Greening committee wants to help you plant more trees! We’re working with Banner neighborhoods on a grant for digging tree pits first — and that will be followed by the trees! The pits will be completed this spring, and hopefully the trees will follow shortly thereafter. We are also working with neighbors who are trying to get potted trees since their block is too narrow for pits. We are looking into funding for this project. We are personally seeing to a tree being planted in front of Ginny Dobry’s former home, and contemplating a plaque or something commemorative to mark her recent passing. One very notable development to mention in the newsletter is that any resident can now request a tree — they do not have to be the property owner. Email me for more information at firstname.lastname@example.org.
