Jamboree Housing Corp., an Irvine-based affordable-housing-development company, has announced the grand opening of its new community, Bonterra Apartment Homes, in Brea.

Bonterra is composed of 94 units for families whose earnings total 30 to 60 percent of the area median income. The one-, two- and three-bedroom Spanish-style apartments include private garages and ENERGY STAR appliances. Bonterra earned a LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) Silver rating from the U.S. Green Building Council, for its water efficiency and environmentally friendly irrigation system. 

Among the spaces available for community use are a computer lab, classrooms for onsite resident services provided by Jamboree, and a community recreation center.

Brea Mayor Don Schweitzer said, “The City of Brea is excited to have partnered with Jamboree Housing to bring an attractive, energy-efficient and well-planned housing development to an important master development site. It speaks to the city’s values for quality and sustainability by integrating affordable housing throughout our community for residents embarking on their careers and for those who have experienced setbacks in the economic landscape of recent years.”

Jamboree Housing collaborated with agencies such as the City of Brea, the County of Orange and the Brea Redevelopment Agency for almost 10 years to plan and implement the project.

Bonterra is located within the Blackstone master-planned community, which is still under construction and will include seven neighborhoods and preserved open space.

Irvine-based KTGY Group Inc. served as the project’s architect, while Advent Companies of San Juan Capistrano acted as the general contractor.
