MBK Rental Living Announces Pre-Leasing at 315-Unit Luxury Apartment Project in Anaheim, California

Zia will bring much-needed housing to Orange County, where less than 3 in 10 first-time homebuyers can afford to purchase an entry-level home

IRVINE, Calif. – MBK Rental Living, one of California’s most successful and innovative private developers, announced today that preleasing is underway at Zia, a five-story, wrap-style apartment community located in central Orange County. Offering upscale living with easy access to downtown Anaheim, Interstate 5, and Disneyland, Zia will comprise 315 apartments offering studio, one-, two- and three-bedroom floor plans ranging from approximately 600 to 1,900 square feet. The community’s grand opening is anticipated for Summer 2024.

Rising on over 5.2 acres at 1600 W. Lincoln in Anaheim, Zia unveils a new standard of luxury living. Residents will experience meticulously designed apartments with high-end finishes, complemented by a plethora of amenities that include a two-story fitness center with dedicated yoga and Jiu-Jitsu spaces; resort-style pool with BBQ area, spa, and cabanas; Zen courtyards; game lounge; co-working office space; meditation path; and even a dog spa and park.

“Given Orange County’s high barrier for entry into home ownership, we anticipate that these 315 new apartments will be a welcome addition to the local community’s housing market,” said Ken McCarren, President of MBK Rental Living. “With home supply low and prices and interest rates remaining high over the last few years, we believe that a wide range of Orange County residents will be attracted to Zia and its community offerings.”

Located only a mile west of downtown Anaheim and a mile north of Disneyland, Orange County’s largest private-sector employer; Zia will offer residents the opportunity to “live full circle” with its high-quality confluence of culture, entertainment, sports, fantasy, and enterprise. Residents will easily connect to Interstate 5 as well as to businesses catering to daily needs and the area’s many dining, entertainment, and cultural destinations, including Anaheim’s Packing District; John Wayne Airport; UCI Medical Center; California State University, Fullerton; and the University of California at Irvine, the county’s second largest employer. 

Zia is a joint venture of MBK Rental Living and Haseko Corporation. The project partners include architect AO, landscape architect Sitescapes, interior designer Design-Art, and property manager Greystar.
