Avalon Bay Mixed-Use Project


Avalon Bay rendering

The Avalon Bay mixed-use project consists of 280 apartment units and about 4,000 square feet of retail space. The apartments range in size from 1 bed / 1 bath units of about 700 square feet up to 3 bed / 2 bath units of about 1,300 square feet.  On-site amenities for residents will include a fitness center, dog park, tot lot, swimming pool, and three landscaped courtyards.  The retail space will be located along Glendora Avenue and could include multiple businesses to serve the surrounding neighborhood and community.

The project will benefit the surrounding area by redeveloping vacant and under-utilized properties and by bringing additional residents into the area to support local businesses.  Residents of the project will benefit from its ideal location in proximity to businesses along Route 66 and the Downtown Village.  The project is also located in proximity to the future Metro Gold Line station, which will provide residents with convenient transit access.  This project will further the vision of the Route 66 Corridor Specific Plan to bring additional housing to the Route 66 corridor.

The goal of this web page is to provide the public with a way to access the latest happenings occurring with the development and to answer questions about the development.  We encourage interested persons to contact the Planning Department directly if you have any questions or concerns.
