GARDEN GROVE, CA-Urban Pacific Builders of Long Beach has signed an exclusive negotiating agreement with the City of Garden Grove to develop the $300-million Brookhurst Triangle, one of the largest mixed-use projects planned for central Orange County over the next several years.Scott Choppin, managing partner of Urban Pacific, says that the company envisions the new development as a mix of upscale stores, such as book shops and coffee houses, all in a pedestrian-friendly setting comparable to the urban villages that Choppin’s firm is developing in other cities.Urban Pacific will be the master developer of the redevelopment project. The Brookhurst Triangle project is planned for a site at Brookhurst Street and Garden Grove Boulevard. It will feature approximately 800 units of housing plus 30,000 sf of commercial and retail space.Urban Pacific describes the housing as “high-density, for-sale attached” units. Some will be in two 10-story high-rise towers of 60 units, with other types of units to include lofts of three and four stories, flats and townhome-style buildings.The Brookhurst Triangle site consists of seven acres of vacant land plus eight acres occupied by office structures, car dealerships and strip malls. The City of Garden Grove has been seeking to redevelop the area for some time.Matthew Fertal, Garden Grove city manager, calls the Brookhurst Triangle “a catalyst for future development radiating out in all directions” from the major intersection where it is planned. The project is scheduled to be developed in several phases over the next several years, with the first housing units available as early as 2009.The Brookhurst Triangle project will be the largest of its kind that Urban Pacific has been involved with to date, Choppin notes. The company has been working on design and development ideas and proposals for the site since 2002, he adds.
