Irvine-based Jamboree Housing Corp. is set to break ground on a new work-force housing development – Bonterra Apartment Homes in Brea – next week.
Located within the community of Blackstone, the 94 garden-style units will provide housing for families earning 30 percent to 60 percent of the area’s median income.
The development will feature seven three-story buildings designed with Spanish-style architecture that face central courtyards, with 21 one-bedroom, 34 two-bedroom and 39 three-bedroom units. Each apartment has its own tucked-under garage. The complex also will feature a 3,500-square-foot recreation center.
Construction is expected to be completed in the fall of next year.
“This new neighborhood is an important addition to Brea’s work-force housing program, and it also provides the affordable housing necessary for the master developer to meet its affordable housing obligation to the city and county as part of the Tonner Hills Development Agreement,” said Laura Archuleta, Jamboree’s president. “Securing all necessary approvals and preparing the site for development has been a long and challenging process that is now complete. This is what public-private partnerships are all about.”
