Much-Needed Senior Asset Meets Pent-Up Demand

Construction is complete on Metro East Senior Park Apartments, a six-story 461,535-square-foot senior affordable housing community that borders Santa Ana and Tustin. Metro East was designed by AO for developers AMG, The Pacific Companies and Jamboree Housing Corporation.

The community comprises 419 residential units with a mix of studio, one- and two-bedroom apartments among floorplans ranging from 402 to 821 square feet. Metro East Senior Park Apartments is currently accepting residents.

“Nearly 125,000 low-income renter households in Orange County do not have access to an affordable home according to the California Housing Partnership,” said 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.”

Located at 2222 E. First St., the property is minutes from I-5 and 55 freeways, and a five-minute drive to Old Town Tustin and Santa Ana’s restaurant scene. It offers access to public transportation, shopping and dining, entertainment centers and medical services.

Project partners are builder Sinanian Construction, landscape architect Thomas H. Phelps Landscape Architecture and civil engineer C&V Consulting.
