Legacy Partners Looks to Double South Coast Base
233 Units Proposed Along Sunflower, Near 580 Site
The developer of 580 Anton, the first upscale apartment project in the Costa Mesa arts district area in a decade, has a second residential project in the works a few blocks away, just over the city line in Santa Ana.
Foster City-based Legacy Partners is in the early stages of entitlement work at 651 W. Sunflower Ave., a 3.6-acre site on the northeast corner of Sunflower Avenue and Flower Street.
Legacy Partners is looking to build a five-story apartment holding 233 units, which would be wrapped around a six-story parking structure containing 466 spaces.
The Sunflower Avenue site is across the street from the northern edge of The Enclave, which opened in 2008.
The Enclave was the last big rental complex to open in the immediate vicinity until last month when Legacy Partners took the wraps off 580 Anton.
The seven-story, 250-unit rental complex is across the street from Plaza Tower, a and a short walk from the proposed development at Sunflower Avenue.
