Ken Ryan Ryan: “The best college towns are known for their intellectual, cultural and economic focus as well as historic preservation.”

ORANGE, CA—The City of Orange has approved the development of a 402-bed student-housing building for upperclassmen and adaptive reuse of a local historic asset for use as a museum and student-services center for Chapman University. The project, owned and developed by Chapman University, will utilize the Villa Park Orchards Association Packing House, a historic resource in Old Towne Orange.

The packing house was originally built for the Santiago Orange Growers Association in 1918 and became the world’s largest exclusive shipper of oranges, shaping the development of this area of Old Towne. In addition to a museum and student-services center, adaptive reuse of the packing house allows for the conversion of the historic packing room into classrooms and offices for the university.
