53 new homes coming to Garden Grove

Brandywine Homes will start construction within two months on a stalled redevelopment project it acquired from the city of Garden Grove.

The Century Village project consists of 53 townhomes on nearly three acres in Garden Grove’s Century Triangle, located near the city’s vintage Main Street district.

A partnership that the Irvine homebuilder is managing agreed to buy the parcel from the city for about $4 million. Century Village will occupy almost half of the Century Triangle, which originally was envisioned as a development containing a mixture of retail and housing.

Several developers have backed out of the project due to uncertainties in the real estate market, Brandywine officials said.
“This is a perfect project for Brandywine because we specialize in building new neighborhoods in fully developed environments,” said Brandywine President Brett Whitehead. “Most builders cannot take on these kinds of projects because they are too small, too complex and involve intensive and creative design.”

The project will feature four floor plans, with sizes ranging from 1,705 square feet to 2,247 square feet. The homes are projected to sell in the mid-$400,000 range.

At least 10 units will have three-car garages. All units will have front porches and balconies. There will be a community park just beyond the entrance.

Sales are expected to start in June, with construction completed within two years.
