Santa Ana Planning Commission Approves Proposed 1,100-Unit Development Project
A mixed-use project known as The Bowery has been cleared by the Santa Ana Planning Commission. The project proposed by Arrimus Capital and Vineyards Development will include 1,100 residential units and 80,000 square feet of commercial space located at 2300, 2310 and 2320 South Redhill Avenue.
Six new structures will make up The Bowery: three 7-story mixed-use commercial/residential buildings, one 5-story residential building and two commercial pads. The mixed-use buildings will accommodate a range of commercial uses common to mixed-use structures such as cafes and small to medium-sized retail. The pads will accommodate medium-intensity uses such as food halls and large-format restaurants.
The site will also contain a commercial plaza and a pedestrian paseo connecting the commercial area to two of the mixed-use buildings. Residential outdoor amenities will include pools, courtyards and exercise areas. In total, the project will consist of 4.21 acres of open space.
Architects Orange is designing the project, which will include metal trim, railings, slats, brick veneers and high-quality light sand finish stucco, among other design elements. The architectural style of the six buildings will be “industrial tech.”
Plans call for a total of 2,600 parking spots spread across a surface lot and four multi-level parking structures for both residents, residential visitors, customers and employees.
Three industrial buildings currently occupy the parcel and will be demolished before construction commences. The buildings have since been used for warehousing/assembly and as a temporary homeless shelter.
In accordance with Santa Ana’s inclusionary housing ordinance, the developer will pay an estimated $12,965,565 in in-lieu fees, which must be spent on the production of affordable housing in the City of Santa Ana.
According to the project planner, the project is expected to appear before the Santa Ana City Council sometime in July.
