Orange County Needs Affordable Homes; Brandywine Answers the Call

According to a recent article in The Street, housing prices are expected to climb in some of the nation’s least affordable areas, including Orange County, and higher prices could lock first-time home buyers out of certain areas. And while Orange County’s job growth continues to increase and people continue to want to make this place their home, affordable housing is still a big concern. As announced in June, Brandywine intends to answer the call for affordable housing with its 34-unit rental community in southern Garden Grove, in the heart of Orange County.

While Brandywine is better known for Orange County single family homes, the company is fully invested in working with communities to deliver the type of housing that best suits the needs of the particular neighborhood in which they’re built. This, along with the desire to expand to the multi-family rental market — a population long underserved in Orange County — makes this newest multi-family development, Hope Street, particularly exciting.

Hope Street, Brandywine’s second Garden Grove multi-family development project, will feature a combination of townhouses and flats ranging in size from 771 to 1,226 square feet. The development is mere miles from Disneyland and Knotts Berry Farm, with convenient freeway access, nearby stores and a close proximity to Little Saigon. Additionally, Garden Grove boasts award winning schools that the children of Hope Street will have the opportunity to attend.

The thirty-four unit development is expected to be completed in February, 2014. For more information on Hope Street or any of Brandywine’s other Orange County developments, contact us.
