We are delighted to work with The City of Rancho Mirage to create this landmark community
Seal Beach, CA (PRWEB) September 11, 2009
The City of Rancho Mirage and The Olson Company will conduct a ceremonial ground breaking today on what is, according to officials, the State of California's largest affordable, senior, new home community to commence construction this year. After several years of planning, entitlement and design work, the San Jacinto Villas community becomes the city's newest age and income restricted rental community.
"The Housing Authority along with City Staff has worked diligently to make this community a reality, which will serve the city and its residents for years to come," noted Allison Kunz, Project Manager. "We are excited to have this project underway," according to Kunz.
Set on 8.7 acres, San Jacinto Villas will consist of 82 one and two-bedroom units ranging from 795 to 1,039 sq. ft. and feature private patios, indoor laundry and
1-car enclosed garages. Community amenities will include a pool, spa, recreation room, putting green, ½-mile walking trail and direct access to Whitewater Park.
The community design has incorporated elements of the local landscape based on exterior design and elevation features. When completed, San Jacinto Villas will compliment the local environment with a prestigious LEED certification from the
U.S. Green Building Council for construction practices.
The construction contract for San Jacinto Villas was awarded to The Olson Company who has specialized in creating award winning affordable housing communities in partnership with California cities for over 20 years. "We are delighted to work with The City of Rancho Mirage to create this landmark community," said Steve Olson, Chairman/ CEO of The Olson Company.
