Atria has provided much-needed supplies and care packages to keep employees and their families safe throughout the pandemic, and it’s a pleasure to help further those efforts within the Newport Beach community.

According to a press release, Atria Newport Beach will feature Coastal California architecture and 169 apartments with a selection of studio, one-bedroom and two-bedroom floor plans.
