SANTA ANA, Calif. — AO, an architectural services firm, has completed Metro East Senior Park Apartments, a six-story, 461,535 square-foot affordable seniors housing community that borders the cities of Santa Ana and Tustin.
Designed for developers AMG, The Pacific Cos. and Jamboree Housing Corp., the community comprises 419 residential units with a mix of studio, one- and two-bedroom apartments with floor plans ranging from 402 to 821 square feet.
“We’re breathing new life into Santa Ana’s Metro East mixed-use zone with a senior affordable housing community,” says Ed Cadavona, partner at AO.
“Nearly 125,000 low-income renter households in Orange County do not have access to an affordable home according to the California Housing Partnership,” says Alexis Gevorgian, partner at AMG. “We’re proud to bring a much-needed asset to Santa Ana that meets pent-up demand and promotes an active and social lifestyle for Orange County seniors.”
Project partners are builder Sinanian Construction, landscape architect Thomas H. Phelps Landscape Architecture and civil engineer C&V Consulting.
