226 Apartments to Replace Church in Santa Ana
From Urbanize Los Angeles
By Steven Sharp
Developer Legacy Partners could replace a small church near the South Coast Plaza shopping mall with a multifamily residential complex, according to a presentation to the Santa Ana Planning Commission.
The project, slated for a 3.59-acre property at 651 West Sunflower Street, calls for razing the nearly 10,000-square-foot church to make way for the construction of a five-story, 226-unit apartment building wrapping around a six-level parking structure. The Legacy Sunflower development would offer a mix of studio, one-, and two-bedroom dwellings, served by 452 parking stalls – or approximately two spaces per residential unit.
A rendering depicts a contemporary design for the project, with proposed finishes including metal panels, stone veneer, and brick veneer. The proposed building would incorporate on-site amenities such as a dog park, a swimming pool, and multiple courtyards.
Construction of Legacy Sunflower is expected to occur over approximately 24 months. An exact timeline has not been announced.
