SANTA ANA, CALIFORNIA
DEVELOPMENT STATUS: UNDER DEVELOPMENT
The Andalucia Apartments community is being built by C&C Development and Orange Housing Development on approximately 2.26 acres at the corner of Harbor Boulevard and Hazard Avenue in Santa Ana. The property will encompass 70 three-bedroom apartments ranging in size from approximately 1,022 to 1,050 square feet to accommodate growing families. The spacious apartments will be rented to families earning between 50% and 110% of the area median income.
Consisting of four three-story buildings, the property includes a 3,195 square-foot community center, a tot lot, on-site laundry facilities, and leasing office. Ample open space will give children a place to learn and play and adult residents will have a facility that offers activities that support and improve their life skills. The property will provide tuck under and surface parking.
The Andalucia Apartments community represents one of the first projects to break ground within the Harbor Mixed Use Transit Corridor Plan (the Harbor Plan). The Harbor Plan vision is for a more livable and sustainable corridor created through new housing and mixed-use developments. Andalucia fits the vision cast by the Harbor Plan and is envisioned to be a catalyst for a more vibrant Harbor Boulevard.
A walkable development, the site is near bus stops, grocery stores, pharmacies, schools and parks, general retail, and other community services. Designed to achieve, at a minimum, a LEED Silver certification, Andalucia Apartments utilizes sustainable building methods such as solar panels for common area electricity, Energy Star appliances, “low-E” windows, and water conserving plumbing fixtures. The property also features energy efficient HVAC units and water heaters, formaldehyde-free insulation, CRI Green label plus carpet, and will exceed California’s Title 24 CALGreen standards by at least 30%.
The site will be fully landscaped throughout with drought resistant shrubs and trees to provide aesthetic value, natural shade, and to aid in the reduction of water runoff. To enhance its sustainability footprint, the property will incorporate grass bio swales and filtera units, and will be served by water efficient irrigation systems.
