Brandywine Homes and Integral Communities recently broke ground on Riverdale, a gated residential community that will offer 131 detached single-family homes on Daisy Avenue in Long Beach, Calif. in close proximity to Bixby Knolls Shopping District. Grading is expected to begin this month, and a grand opening celebration is slated for August 2017.
“There are virtually no new residential developments located in the South Bay, which is a prime area for families looking to live in a place with easy freeway access and low commute times to both LA and Orange County,” said Dave Barisic, principal in charge of sales and marketing at Brandywine Homes, a pioneer of infill development in Southern California. “This exclusive gated neighborhood is designed to appeal to growing and established families with children, as well as empty nesters – a perfect community to call home.”
Riverdale will offer contemporary floor plans with three and four bedrooms ranging from 1,900 to 2,250 square feet. Luxurious home amenities include gourmet kitchens with stainless appliances and granite countertops, master suites and green features. The gated community includes a resort style clubhouse with a meeting room, jr.Olympic pool and spa with cabanas, outdoor dining areas, and tot lot. Prices are expected to start in the low $600,000s.
Near the Riverdale project, Brandywine is planning to develop a 3.3-acre city park named after Dr. David Molina of Long Beach-based Molina Healthcare. The C. David Molina Park will be located at 4951 Oregon Avenue and will feature a turf soccer field, playground, restroom facility, walking path, parking and landscaping. The park will have energy efficient lighting to provide additional hours of play for Long Beach sports groups. The walking path and a series of fitness stations will provide an opportunity for healthy outdoor exercise. The playground will feature dynamic universally accessible play structures, a climbing structure, safety surfacing and colorful shade structures.
