Proposed Residential Community Faces Anaheim Planning Commission
Today, the Anaheim Planning Commission will hear a proposal to construct 112 attached, single-family residences at the recently demolished Cornelia Connelly School.
The applicant, Melia Homes, will build 22, 3-story buildings, consisting of two to four-bedroom units with attached two-car garages. The townhomes would have two to three bedrooms, with some units having a den that can be constructed as an optional fourth bedroom at the buyer’s request. Each unit would have a 2-car, side-by-side garage, a kitchen, living area, private balcony on the second floor, and bedrooms on the third floor. The units would contain between 1,606 and 1,979 square feet of living area. Recreational amenities would include a swimming pool, built-in barbeque area, shade structures, seating areas, equipment building, restroom, and showers.
The project has been designed to provide the required number of parking spaces in 224 garaged spaces and 124 open spaces.
Designed by Summa Architecture, the project would include a contemporary urban Spanish design and would incorporate a mix of building materials in neutral, muted colors in three different schemes, with decorative tiles, metal grilles and awnings, medallions, shutters, and planter boxes for articulation.
Melia Homes proposes to enter into a voluntary Development Agreement with the City to contribute $1,000 per residential unit ($112,000) towards the City’s affordable housing programs.
