November 20th, 2014

Whether you’ve recently moved in to our contemporary apartments in Anaheim or you’ve been a resident for a while, you might be looking for ways to become more involved in your Anaheim community. Anaheim is known as the “city of kindness” and strongly encourages community building activities, part of which is their Get to Know Your Neighbor! program.

When you know your neighbors, this provides you with more opportunities for socializing and creating lifelong friendships and helps the community as a whole by building stronger, safer, and more resilient ties in the community. You can become a part of the “Get to Know Your Neighbor!” initiative by following these five steps:

  • Meet Your Neighbor: Introduce yourself!
  • Create an Emergency Contact List: Get contact information for at least five of your neighbors, and provide your own, too.
  • Plan a Neighborhood Party: This is a great way to welcome newcomers, meet-and-greet other neighbors, and strengthen community bonds.
  • Plan a Neighborhood Cleanup: Organizing a charitable community event is another terrific way to pull your neighbors together for a cause that benefits everyone in the community.
  • Volunteer:  There are always plenty of volunteer opportunities in and around Anaheim that you can take advantage of to help support community charities and organizations.

In what ways are you involved in your Anaheim community? Share your experiences with your apartment neighbors! You can send us a message today to get details about the amenities of our contemporary apartments in Anaheim or schedule a tour.

Easy Ways to Go Green in Your Anaheim Kitchen

November 18th, 2014

If you have never thought about living green, you might not realize how easy it can be. We do dozens of things that fill up the landfills. We are so insistent upon convenience that we fail to see how some things actually make life harder.

For example, did you ever wonder at the vast amount of garbage you carry out each week? What a chore! Here are a few simple tips for a sustainable lifestyle in our green apartments in Anaheim that might actually make life easier:

  • Ditch the plastic water bottles. Individual bottles are a huge part of the massive plastic wasted in our landfills. Decrease the effect by carrying a reusable bottle filled from your own kitchen sink. Install a filter or just use a pitcher filter to remove water impurities.
  • Replace plastic storage containers with glass. The newer nesting variety is perfect for going from the refrigerator to the microwave.
  • Use cloth instead of paper towels. Use sponges for wet messes, and you can minimize washing the cloth towels.
  • Reduce packaging. If you have never purchased from the bulk bins at the grocery store, you will be amazed at the variety of foodstuffs available without cardboard packaging and at the amount of money you will save. Seal-able jars are attractive on the shelves, easy to monitor, and pest-free.
  • Use nontoxic cleaners. Pets and little ones are far safer in a home that does not contain harsh chemical cleaning solutions. You might find chemicals necessary occasionally to tackle a big mess, but natural cleaners will often suffice.

We designed our green apartments in Anaheim for sustainable living. Contact us for more information on our community.

Build Strength in the Fitness Center With These Yoga Poses

October 30th, 2014

Yoga is an excellent way to rejuvenate your body and relax your mind. In our apartments in Anaheim with yoga studio you have plenty of room to stretch.

Here are five yoga poses you can do in the Crossing yoga studio if you want to build strength:

    Yoga Pose - Bakasana

  • The Boat Pose improves core strength and hip flexibility. If you hold this pose for a minimum of five breaths, it will help you build core muscles, align the spine and prevent chronic back pain.
  • The Sprung-up Pose is best-performed from full lotus pose. The lift pulls every muscle in the body into the core, toning the muscles of the chest, core, thighs and arms while building physical and mental endurance.
  • Plank is usually used as a transitional pose,held for five breaths with arms straight, but holding this pose for a full minute builds core and upper body strength and relaxes the nervous system.
  • The Four-pronged Staff Posture develops shoulder alignment through the engagement of the entire shoulder girdle. When done properly, the pose improves upper body strength and builds inner determination.
  • Bakasana is one of the basic arm balance poses. The pose engages the shoulder girdle and relaxes the spine if done correctly. However, without developed core, the pose can put a lot of strain on the wrists.

Pick the Right Collar for Your Anaheim Pup

October 28th, 2014

We are fortunate to live at our pet-friendly apartments in Anaheim. Our contemporary community is a great spot for pet owners.

Dog Collars: Which type Is best for your dog?

However it is important that you pic the right collar for your dog to hang his identification tags and other important tags, as well as for training.

  • A flat collar is the standard collar for most dogs. It has a closure that easily opens via a buckle or a snap. They come in a large variety of colors and designs. When attached to your dog’s neck, you should be able to get two fingers under the collar.
  • The martingale collar is a limited-slip collar. It is good for dogs who easily slip out of their collars or for dogs who have very narrow heads, such as greyhounds. With this collar, there is a metal ring on both ends of a length of material. Another loop of material goes through both rings and a leash attaches to a ring on this loop.
  • The head collar is placed around your dog’s neck and sits high on his head, right behind his ears. There’s another strap that forms a loop around the muzzle. This collar is great for hyper, energetic dogs who are strong.
  • The choke chain has metal links and tightens around your dog’s neck when he pulls. It should sit high on a dog’s neck, just behind the ears. This collar can be dangerous to use. Consult an experienced dog trainer if you would like to use this type of collar.
  • Shock collars utilize electronic shocks and are generally used as a training devise. These type of collars can irritate your dog’s neck.

Our green apartments in Anaheim were developed with a goal of acquiring Gold LEED status. So every part of the development, from the construction to interior design conforms to the guidelines of this sustainable standard.

The construction of the Crossing was green from the start by building on previously developed land, which protected virgin land, and recycling 94% of demolition waste.

Even our amenities meet eco-friendly standards. All units are equipped with Energy Star appliances, dual flush toilets and programmable thermostats. The carpets are made with 100% post-recycled plastic. Low VOC paints and finishes, dual-glazed windows, Energy Star fans and a Broan Smartsense ventilation system keeps utility bills low and residents healthy, allergy-free and happy.

The landscaping in our green apartments in Anaheim use drought resistance plantings, a recycled water system, rain chains and capture basins to conserve water. The building is kept cool with the white membrane that covers the roof dissipating the urban heat island effect and efficiently lowering our carbon footprint.

Located within easy walking distance of both a Metrolink station and OCTA bus stops. Residents are encouraged to reduce their own carbon footprint by foregoing the use of their cars in favor of public transportation as often as possible. An underground parking area with spaces for energy efficient and electric cars, keeps above ground areas appealing and spacious while further diluting the heat island effect.

If sustainability and energy efficiency is important to you, why live anywhere else? The Crossing residents enjoy a comprehensive recycling program that features trash and recycling rooms with separate chutes.
