Murfey Construction, Inc. gets right to the point with their recent Pacific Beach groundbreaking for a 21-unit, high-end, mixed-use urban apartment complex in the Crown Point neighborhood.

The Point at Ingraham, a three-story 35,000-square-foot project, will feature nine two-bedroom apartments, 11 one-bedroom apartments and one studio. Amenities will include solar electricity, air conditioning, washers and dryers, a gas range and tankless water heaters.

“It will have every modern amenity, including LED lighting and wireless connections,” said Scott Murfey, president of Murfey Construction. “We’re trying to be a green builder, so we’re using recycled blue jeans for insulation — denim is non-toxic and mold-resistant, has excellent insulation values and is sound-deadening.”

The Point will feature a private entrance and an elevator lobby with key card access. The gated parking lot will provide 45 spaces, and every apartment will have its own storage unit with ample space for bikes and surfboards. The Point’s second floor, 500-square-foot outdoor deck will feature tables and a BBQ for tenant socializing.

The 3805 Ingraham complex will include a 2300-square-foot ground floor space for commercial retail tenants. Murfey envisions that the retail space may feature places to relax, like a neighborhood café and a yoga studio.

According to Murfey, the large outdoor patio on the building’s Southwest corner will be available to both the tenants and the public. It will include a wall where people can park their bikes and get something to eat or drink and congregate.

“Our goal with The Point is to bring the same sleek contemporary urban feeling to Pacific Beach that’s present in downtown San Diego and Little Italy,” Murfey said. “We feel like there’s a great need in PB for some newer apartments that people will enjoy being part of.”

Scott Murfey and his brother, Russell, are the property developers (under Veritas Urban Properties) and the general contractors and builders of Murfey Construction, Inc. Their new office space is across the street from The Point at 1571 La Playa Ave.

“We just started the project a few weeks ago, and it will be completed early next year, but we’ll be leasing the apartments out ahead of time, so people can contact us at (858) 356-2284,” Murfey said.

The brothers, who grew up in La Jolla, have built other mixed-use properties around San Diego and are currently building a 4,000-square-foot home in La Jolla Shores.
