When completed, the development will provide a total of 70 affordable apartment units along with about 8,500 sq. foot of ground floor retail. The affordable housing is for working families that have an income between 30% - 60% of the Area Median Income (AMI). The 1.35 acre project site is being developed by a partnership with C&C Development and Orange Housing Development Corporation.
The project consists of two buildings. The first is adjacent to the intersection of Santa Ana Boulevard and Santiago Street and is the mixed use building with 21 residential units and the 8,500 sq. foot ground floor retail space. The second building will be primarily residential (49 units) along with the 3,000 sq. foot community space.
