SENTRE Commences Construction on New Multi-Family Property, Villea at Lake Murray 

June 17, 2024 – Our town took a magical trip down memory lane today. The Model T Ford Club of America rolled into town for their 2024 National Tour. 

Dozens of these magnificent Model T’s lined our streets. It felt like stepping back in time.

The visitors took a stroll through our town’s rich history, from the old Lakeside Inn, the Auto Speedway route, made famous by racing legend Barney Oldfield, to our charming historic buildings and homes.

The Lakeside Historical Society opened their doors, welcoming everyone to explore the chapel, museum, Gift Shop, and the Speedway monument. It was a little slice of the past brought back to life.

Their visit was short, but the memories will last a lifetime. A huge thank you to the Model T Ford Club of America for stopping by and making the day in our hometown so special.

Residential property in La Mesa is growing area’s newest development; plans include 27 two-story townhomes with attached garages

(SAN DIEGO) October 24, 2017 – San Diego based commercial real estate investment firm SENTRE has announced plans to develop a new apartment community, Villea at Lake Murray, a modern living experience rooted in classic California style. As the newest development in the Lake Murray neighborhood of La Mesa, Villea is slated to open its doors to residents in Fall 2018 while enhancing the value and aesthetics of the neighborhood in which is resides.

Located at 5565 Lake Murray Boulevard, upon completion Villea will feature 27 spacious townhomes for rent, each averaging more than 1,000 square feet. Each new home at Villea will feature attached garages, quartz countertops, stainless steel appliances, hardwood flooring, central heat and air and in-unit washers and dryers. Onsite amenities will include a clubhouse and lifestyle center, fitness center, spa, BBQ station, secured parking and community-wide wireless internet. Rental rates are expected to start near $2,500 per month for a 2 bed, 2.5 bath townhome with attached 2 car garage.

“We hope to infuse an urban edge into this traditionally suburban setting,” said Doug Arthur, President and CEO of SENTRE. “We will offer spacious townhome residences with direct access garages in a lower density yet highly amentized site plan that is incredibly walkable to Lake Murray as well as high quality shopping and dining.”

Villea’s central location is mere minutes from Lake Murray and conveniently adjacent to the Lake Murray Village Shopping Center featuring shopping, entertainment and professional services. With its location in one of San Diego’s fastest growing suburbs, Villea is primed as an opportunity for renters to enjoy a spacious home while remaining close to the vibrant, growing scene of La Mesa.

Villea at Lake Murray is one of several SENTRE multi-family properties acquired and/or developed during the past six years under the “SENTRE Living” brand. SENTRE has retained prominent local architect Carrier Johnson as well as Cannon Constructors to carry out design and construction. The development is estimated at $10 million. SENTRE also owns and operates The Marketplace at Lake Murray, Stoneridge by the Lake and Enclave at Lake Murray.
