The OC Register reports that the long-dormant A-Town project may finally get underway by the end of this year:
Construction of a 43-acre residential-and-retail development known as A-Town may get underway by the end of the year, with new plans for the long-delayed project going before the Anaheim City Council as early as October.
The developer, Lennar Corp., plans on building 1,400 to 1,746 for-sale condos and apartments, up to 50,000 square feet of commercial space, and two parks over the next decade.
The plans differ significantly from when they first came across the city’s desk in 2005, with this most-recent iteration meant to ensure “flexibility in developing a variety of residential products going forward,” said Ryan Gatchalian, president of Lennar’s Southern California Urban Division, in a statement.
About 400 apartments are under review by city staffers, meaning they are likely close to setting phase one of construction in motion, said Mike Lyster, a spokesman for the city.
The “flexibility” Gatchalian spoke about means that in later years, if it becomes clear that a certain type of residence is more suitable for the local market, Lennar can adjust.
