Santa Ana Affordable Housing Project Breaks Ground, Developed by Community Development Partners

Santa Ana Affordable Housing Project Breaks Ground

Newport Beach, CA-based developer Community Development Partners (CDP) has started construction on Westview House, a $52 million, 85-unit affordable housing complex on Westminster Avenue in Santa Ana, CA. The Orange County Register reports the project will set aside 26 units for people experiencing homelessness, and 75% of the total residences will be reserved for extremely low-income families.

The Westview House project includes $3.9 million in funding from the City of Santa Ana, and Mercy House, which is a partner in the development, will provide services for previously homeless residents including adult education, health and wellness and skill-building classes. 

According to Judson Brown, Santa Ana’s housing division manager, the city has financed the development of 13 affordable housing projects in the last seven years, and when completed, they will provide over 5,000 badly-needed affordable housing units. 

Amenities at Westview House will include a community room, BBQ areas and a children’s play structure. Rents will range between $756 and $1,170 a month.
