REDWOOD CITY, CA-Construction has begun on a new 141-unit apartment complex on 2.51 acres in Redwood City on the San Francisco Peninsula.

KTGY Group, Inc., Architecture + Planning designed the project for owner SummerHill Apartment Communities of San Ramon, Calif. (formerly known as Urban Housing Group), a subsidiary of Marcus & Millichap.

The 705 to 1,106sf apartments will be in several 3- and 4-story buildings situated around community amenities, said Jessica Musick, the lead designer of the project.

The development is located on the site of the former Mel's bowling alley at 2580 El Camino Real in Redwood City.

Pre-leasing is expected to begin in early 2014, and the first apartment homes are slated to open in summer 2014.
