A vacant, eight-acre lot in Santa Ana could be transformed into a mixed-use community with 644 multi-family residential units and 15,130 square feet of commercial space. 

The ambitious project by Waterford Property Company, known as Central Pointe, would come to include an array of indoor and outdoor amenities, plus a dynamic retail plaza at the corner of Fourth Street and Cabrillo Park Drive.

Documents presented during a Planning Commission meeting on October 26th shed more light on the proposed development at 1801 East Fourth Street. Plans call for two five-story buildings, each “wrapped around a seven-level parking structure,” providing a total of 1,318 vehicle spaces. Publicly accessible open space would be incorporated into the project, including a linear greenspace with access to a trail that connects to nearby Mabury Park.  

Building A would feature 19 studios, 162 one-bedroom units, 121 two-bedroom units and 23 three-bedroom units, along with 6,100 square feet of ground-floor commercial space and 3,500 square feet of restaurant space.

Meanwhile, Building B would tout 20 studios, 164 one-bedroom units, 127 two-bedroom units and 8 three-bedroom units. Approximately 5,600 square feet of commercial space would be found on the ground floor, opposite Building A’s retail offerings.

Designed by KTGY Architecture + Planning, the contemporary residences would boast near-identical amenities, such as a leasing office, lobby and lounge area, business center, and a rooftop pool deck. Building A would offer five outdoor amenity areas serving a variety of purposes, from lawn games to alfresco dining and fireside relaxation. Building B would have four open-air courtyards, including an entertainment garden, foodie lounge and backyard.

A resident park and paved pedestrian walkways would divide the two structures, and a dog park with synthetic grass and bench seating would occupy the northwest corner of the lot. According to Waterford’s website, “Central Pointe is geared towards the Millenial [sic] renter who wants to be near amenities and transit and close to the major employment nodes in Orange County.”

Situated near the I-5/CA-55 interchange, the proposed development is less than two miles from downtown Santa Ana. If approved, Central Pointe could be completed by 2025. A virtual Planning Commission Public Hearing will be held on Monday, November 9th at 5:30 pm to discuss the project in greater detail.
