Intracorp and ST Residential Join Forces to Market Loft Communities in San Diego and Marina Del Rey

NEWPORT BEACH, CA--(Marketwire - September 20, 2010) -  Intracorp Companies, a leading real estate development firm with offices throughout the West, and ST Residential, a nationwide real estate asset ownership and management company specializing in luxury condominium properties, have joined forces to market a collection of distinctive loft communities in San Diego and Marina Del Rey.

In San Diego, the companies will market Metro Lofts, a group of five unique communities spread out over two of San Diego's most vibrant neighborhoods: the East Village/Ballpark area and Little Italy's art/design district. With a total of 58 units for sale, the properties offer one-of-a-kind floor plans designed by award-winning architect Jonathan Segal and feature low-rise, low-density living with an urban, industrial feel. Sales are scheduled to begin in November 2010. For more information, visit

In Marina Del Rey, Intracorp and ST will team up on the marketing of Gallery Lofts, a four-story, 100-unit loft community in the Marina Del Rey Arts District. Comprised of seven buildings coupled together in a U-shape design, the development features a steel, concrete and glass exterior. Sales are slated for March 2011 for this refreshing statement of style and creativity in the Westside's most eclectic and up-and-coming neighborhood.

"Together, these communities promise to appeal to a broad spectrum of home buyers who are attracted by the convenience and contemporary style of urban living," stated Peter Lauener, regional president of Intracorp. "By combining the extensive development, marketing and sales experience of Intracorp with the financial strength and reputation of ST Residential, we are ideally positioned to play a leadership role in the resurgence of the urban residential market in two Southern California cities."
