Zephyr’s new gated community of 30 tri-level townhomes in Mira Mesa will host its grand opening on Saturday, May 14, 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., at 11345 Zapata Avenue, San Diego, 92126. Guests can view models, enjoy refreshments from Kona Ice San Diego and Cheesy Amigos, and enter a raffle to win prizes.

Designed with sleek, modern architecture, the residences will be offered in three open floorplans, ranging from 1,814-2,017 square feet, and feature three to four bedrooms, 3 1/2 baths, two-car attached garages with side-by-side parking and elegant, private balconies.

Aura offers homebuyers the perks and peace of mind of new construction, but in an already well-established area that feels like a neighborhood, said Zephyr Co-CEO Brad Termini. The floorplans have been designed to accommodate the needs of multiple generations, so the residences are ideal for families that have children or grandparents living at home.

Frigidaire appliance packages are included in every kitchen, along with granite countertops with backsplash, European slab door cabinets and a Sonetto sink. The bathrooms include cultured marble countertops with integrated sinks, and the master baths feature spacious showers with glass enclosures.

Centrally located, the community offers convenient access to nearby high-tech and bio-tech employment hubs, where major companies including Qualcomm, Websense and Arena Pharmaceuticals, Inc. are headquartered. San Diego’s beaches, cultural offerings and more are also just a short drive away via major freeways.

Mira Mesa is also home to a wide range of schools for every stage of life. Mason Elementary School, Challenger Middle School, Mira Mesa High School and San Diego Miramar College are close to the community, and easily accessible.

Nearby Mira Mesa Market Center and Mira Mesa Shopping Center offer a variety of dining, shopping and entertainment options, and residents can enjoy fun activities and events at the Mira Mesa Recreation Center, or take a stroll on any of the nearby hiking trails. Eight community parks are also located in the city, and include a teen center, senior center, ice arena and an aquatic complex.

Aura’s location offers the best of both worlds, said Termini. Owners will enjoy the privacy of a gated community, along with the convenience that comes with being close to large companies, restaurants, shops and entertainment.
