The 41-story, 457-unit REN apartment tower, at 2014 Fairview Ave. in the Denny Triangle, has fully opened to renters, according to developer Bosa Family Cos. (The first residents began moving there in January.) About 40% of the apartments have been leased, with monthly rents in a range from about $2,514 to $9,343. Greystar manages the building, and its Shannon Hammond said in a statement, “The combination between art, architecture and nature has created something truly special for this growing neighborhood, and we're excited for our residents to move in and begin to experience all that this community has to offer.” The building features 23,000 square feet of amenity space, a curated art program, roof terrace, gym, co-working space and dog spa. Local artist Brent Comber created the lobby art installation. Tech features include the Brevvie kiosk system, Fetch delivery service, the STRATIS IoT OneApp, an all-in-one digital hub, plus free building-wide WiFi from a WhiteSky. ZGF Architects designed the project, which was built by Bosa (not to be confused with Bosa Development).
