SAN MARCOS, CA--(Marketwired - Sep 23, 2013) -  Demand for luxury apartments in North San Diego County is strong, as evidenced by Wood Partners' Alta San Marcos -- a 108-unit gated community located in San Marcos, Calif., which is nearly fully leased even though rental rates are among the highest in the market at more than $2 per square foot.

According to Wood Partners, this community has only five units available at 815 South Twin Oaks Valley Road.

"We knew there was a shortage of new luxury apartments in North San Diego County," said Brian Hansen, Wood Partners' director of development for Southern California. "We came into the market at just the right time with just the right product. People are looking for the kind of high-end amenities and boutique services that we're offering residents at our San Marcos community."

Among those services are regular demonstrations by chefs preparing locally grown organic produce, free beach cruisers for residents' use and dry cleaning, delivery services. Residents also enjoy a state-of-the-art clubroom with WiFi, electronic gaming systems, a fitness center, pool and a rooftop terrace.

Its 42 two-bedroom and 66 one-bedroom units, distributed among four garden-style three-story buildings, have granite countertops, wood laminate flooring, stainless steel appliances and washers and dryers.

The community, on approximately four acres 30 miles north of San Diego and a short drive to miles of California's finest beaches, boasts expansive foothill and valley views.
