Brandywine Homes acquired a former Dodge dealership at 1110 W. Orangethorpe Ave. in Fullerton for $3.25 million.

“It’s just been sitting idle,” said Brett Whitehead, Brandywine’s president. “It’s blighted because of it, and the city wanted to see it cleaned up.

“The whole site will be demolished. It’s reallygoing to clean up that area and transform that area.”

The firm, founded in 1994, plans to build 52 three-story townhomes on the site.

Whitehead said he expects models to be built within six months and homes to be ready for sale by the end of the year.

Brandywine is currently seeking approval for an unrelated development of 51 townhomes near the Nixon Presidential Library & Museum in Yorba Linda.
