Brandywine Homes to Build Rental Community in South Garden Grove

34 units will address need for affordable housing in heart of Orange County; Brandywine ‘bullish’ on multifamily and single-home market

GARDEN GROVE, Calif. – June 24, 2013 – Brandywine Homes announces plans for a 34-unit rental community consisting of both townhomes and flats located on 1.1 acres in the heart of Orange County.

The new project – at Hope Street and Westminster Avenue in southern Garden Grove – will be the second multifamily development for Irvine-based Brandywine Homes, Southern California’s premier developer of single-family infill projects that respect the architectural integrity of existing neighborhoods.

“We’re bullish on housing in general right now – both rental communities and for-sale housing,” said Dave Barisic, vice president of sales and marketing for the 18-year-old homebuilding company. “Orange County continues to see healthy job growth, and it’s a place people want to live,” Barisic said.

While single-family detached homes are still Brandywine’s bread and butter, Barisic said the company has long wanted to diversify its offerings.

“Expanding into the Multi-Family rental market is something we have been interested in for many years,” said Barisic. “It allows us to serve a population that we believe has been underserved in our core market area.”

Brandywine broke ground on the development in late March, and completion is anticipated in February, 2014.

Designed by LSA Architecture, the new community will consist of 12 one-bedroom, 16 two-bedroom, and 6 three-bedroom townhomes and flats ranging from 771 to 1,226 square feet. Amenities will include granite countertops and upgraded appliances.

Just miles from Disneyland and Knotts Berry Farm, the community will also have quick access to the 22 Freeway and Westminster Avenue shopping centers and dining. Little Saigon is nearby, and residents’ children will have the opportunity to attend Garden Groves’ award-winning schools.

In January, Brandywine broke ground on a 25-unit project on .887 acres near Dale Street and Stanford Avenue in Garden Grove. In addition to the upcoming Hope Street project, the homebuilder has two more multifamily developments in the pipeline.
