Housing Watch: New luxury apartment complex under construction in Fresno


FRESNO, Calif. (KFSN) – A large, upscale apartment complex quickly took shape near the Copper River Country Club.

When completed, the developer of The Lark in Copper River said it will be Fresno’s largest apartment complex.

The five-unit townhouses that welcome you have been designed to set the tone. Front porches, parallel parking.

Mark VandenBerghe, President of VandenBerghe Properties, explained: “When you walk in, you look like you are entering a single-family neighborhood. “

But 492 apartments are under construction in Friant and Copper. They will begin to be available to the public next year.

VandenBerghe said, “This is the nicest apartment community in the Central Valley. Not just the Fresno-Clovis Market, but really anywhere from Sacramento to Los Angeles, there’s nothing like it. “

Vandenberghe arrived from the Bay Area to pay Action News and check on the progress of this massive project.

A three-story rental office will include a gym, yoga studio, and private offices for residents to use.

Mark said, “Our coffee will be here and we will lounge here with a fireplace.”

A resort-style swimming pool will also be in place.

He added: “On the roof we have a roof terrace with views of the Sierra and the San Joaquin River.”

Vandenberghe was encouraged to see how well received another upscale resort, The Row, in Fresno.

“It’s an absolutely wonderful project,” he said. “They have 250 units, which were leased in six months in COVID. The strength of this market has been so evident.”

At this point, one-bedroom units could start at around $ 1,800 per month.

VandenBerghe was not worried about the lack of people who could afford to live in a luxury resort.

“No, I’m not afraid of that,” he said. “I think the demand far exceeds that.”

The townhouses are almost finished. Vandenberghe said he was just waiting for PG&E to turn on the power.

A high-tech door entry will allow you to simply type in a code.

He added: “If someone comes in and tries to hack your numbers, there’s actually a camera in there.”

The Alouette should be completed within two years.
