TUSTIN, CA-Shea Properties of Aliso Viejo will develop three hotels totaling 480 rooms that will be the first hospitality projects at the 820-acre Legacy Park development. The three properties will include a 180-room Kimpton boutique hotel and two other major-brand hotels totaling 300 rooms, all of them to be built by R.D. Olson Development of Irvine.

The Kimpton full-service boutique hotel will feature an upscale restaurant at ground level, a rooftop patio and bar, banquet and conference facilities and other amenities. The hotel is planned as what Shea describes as “a one-of-a-kind venue” that will be similar in concept to the Hotel Solamar in Downtown San Diego, also a Kimpton hotel.

The two major-brand select service concepts are designed to meet the needs of the future 5.7 million sf of new office users at Legacy Park, which is an 820-acre mixed-use development located between Red Hill Avenue, Edinger Avenue, Jamboree Road and Barranca Parkway on the site of the former Tustin Marine Corps Air Station. The first hotel will anchor the west end of the main street and will total approximately 160 rooms. The second will be an all-suites hotel of approximately 140 suites.

Steve Center, senior vice president of leasing for Shea Properties, comments that the new hotel offerings will be designed as “a complement to the retail area’s unique dining and shopping options.” The hotels also will be designed to meet the full spectrum of hospitality customer needs, from the executive and business traveler, to business relocations, to family accommodations.

Surrounded by interstates 405, 5, 55, and the 261 Toll Road, adjacent to the Tustin Metrolink Station, and minutes from John Wayne Airport, Legacy Park is at the geographic center of Orange County. When complete, the development will include 2,105 residential units, and 6.7 million sf of commercial space including office buildings, retail, hotels and restaurants.

Legacy Park will also include 170 acres of parks and open space including a two-mile long linear park that will run diagonally through the project, connecting each district with pedestrian pathways. Grading is now under way at the project with the first phase of construction set to begin on the Shea Technology Campus, an office park on the corner of Warner and Redhill Avenue, in mid-2008.
