The recently completed apartment complex, Aviara, celebrated its opening last week. The building, which opened earlier in March, is almost 90 percent leased.

Over 200 of the building’s residents and community guests gathered for a celebration of the project and community on Wednesday, Aug. 14.

Members of the Aviara staff and board were on hand, along with staff from Mercer Island Youth and Family Services Foundation, where BRE Properties presented the MIYFS Foundation with a check.

“Being a good community partner and creating a community where residents feel at home are our main goals for Aviara and for all BRE’s communities,” said Kevin Grani, BRE’s vice president property operations, northern division, in a press release. “The celebration was to show our appreciation to our residents and the city of Mercer Island.”

The building also contains 10,000 square feet of ground floor retail space, part of which has been leased to The Islander, which will open in September.
