At its meeting on May 21, the Brea City Council voted to approve the Mercury project, a new multi-family residential development located in Downtown Brea.

The project’s applicant Manley Fanticola Holdings, LLC received entitlements to build a five-story building with two levels of above-ground parking and 114 studio, one-bedroom and two-bedroom rental units. 

Eleven residential units will be reserved for low-income affordable housing and at least 80 will be designated as “workforce” housing units. The project identifies these units as “workforce” due to their size and proximity to major employment centers and will have rents between $1,200 to $1,695. 

The project’s architectural design by Humphreys & Partners Architects will be a modern, Art Deco style building incorporating a sand plaster finish and metal elements. 

Construction is estimated to begin this summer.
