5-Story, 329-Unit Mixed-Use Development Heads to the Fullerton Planning Commission
Tomorrow, the Fullerton Planning Commission will decide the future of a proposed mixed-use project located within the Fullerton Town Center (FTC) Shopping Center, at the northwest corner of Orangethorpe Avenue and Lemon Street.
The applicant, Streetlights Residential, is proposing to redevelop a 4.47-acre site by demolishing existing retail buildings and associated surface parking and constructing a 5-story mixed-use development. The development will consist of 329 residential apartment units, a parking structure associated with open space, and up to 6,500 square feet of ground-floor commercial space. The proposed apartment unit mix would include 21 studios, 162 one- and 146 two-bedroom units.
The ground level of the proposed building would contain the commercial tenant spaces and associated outdoor public areas; indoor and outdoor resident amenities; leasing offices; as well as residential units. The project will include 550 parking stalls (500 for residential, 22 for visitors and 28 designated for commercial parking). The project includes a minimum of five percent of the total units (i.e., 17 units; 19 proposed), reserved as a deed-restricted rental to a very-low-income household.
Designed in a contemporary style, the apartment building took inspiration from some of Fullerton’s iconic buildings, including the California Hotel, Dewella Apartments, and the Railroad Depot buildings.
