Related California Debuts Fullerton’s First Affordable TOD
Related California opened Citrea, an affordable transit-oriented development with 54 apartments for low-income families, and one manager’s unit, located on a one-acre site in the historical downtown Fullerton, CA. The project is the first affordable community to be developed in the new Fullerton Transportation Center Specific Plan.
The project is located at 336 E. Santa Fe Ave., near schools, a community center, the Fullerton Public Library, a public park, and within walking distance of the Fullerton Train Station and a regional bus transportation hub. Social services are provided by LifeSteps and include adult educational courses such as financial literacy, health and wellness, skill-building, and computer training classes.
Citrea is located on the site of the former Pacific Citrus Products bottling plant, which manufactured the company’s most famous product, Hawaiian Punch, in the mid-20th century.
