Hills Preserve

Development Location

The 76 acre site is located one mile (3 mins) off the Weir Canyon exit on Santa Ana Canyon Road in the City of Anaheim, west of the Festival Shopping Center and directly across from Madison Squares Self Storage facility. The majority of the land is currently zoned “transitional” and has never been developed.

The site is also located north of the Deer Canyon Park Preserve, a forgotten park owned by the City that has been under-utilized for decades and is in need of rehabilitation to activate it once again for the safe enjoyment of the public.

Development Approach

There is an extreme shortage of housing in the City as well as surrounding communities. Anaheim’s 2021-2029 Regional Housing Needs Assessment (RHNA) allocation is requiring more than 17,000 residential units to be added. This is more than a 300% increase as compared to the City’s RHNA obligations during the 2014-2021 cycle.

All districts in the City are being challenged to meet this state mandate, which is being reflected by the development projects underway west of the 57 Freeway. But this is not enough and in fact, requires much more.

Hills Club & Preserve

Hills Club & Preserve apartments will be developed on 14 acres and include a maximum of 498 units including Studios, 1-Bedroom, 2-Bedroom and 3-Bedroom homes designed in a mid-century modern style creating a new standard of luxury. These homes will be complete with floor-to-ceiling glass, generous balconies, and quality finishes, while presenting beautiful views of the surrounding hills.

The public will be met by a lushly landscaped entrance off Santa Ana Canyon Road and a
grand porte-cochere complete with elements of fire and water, while all resident parking will be hidden from view. The 7-story building will be located at the lowest part of the site and recessed into the hills to preserve the hilltop vistas for surrounding communities. Hills Club & Preserve, with its luxury design and amenities and close connection with surrounding trail systems, will become known as the best place to live, work, and play in all southern California.

Preserve Estates

In addition to the apartment homes in the Hills Club & Preserve, the Preserve Estates will offer the community a thoughtfully designed, single-family neighborhood. These estate homesites will be developed on 4 acres of land within the site that were previously entitled for 34 homes, preventing any further development of the site in perpetuity. The remaining acreage will become part of the Open Space that will be offered for dedication to the City to preserve natural open space and facilitate the significant expansion of Deer Canyon Park Preserve and its trail systems for the benefit of all Anaheim City residents.

Preserve Place

Hills Preserve proposes the addition of two commercial building sites, which will be developed in conformance with the City’s General Commercial Zone, allowing opportunities for future office, retail, and/or hospitality uses. Adjacent to Festival Mall and other commercial buildings, and located immediately off Santa Ana Canyon Road, Preserve Place will provide an easily accessible and beautiful setting for the location of additional services for Anaheim Hills and surrounding communities.

Open Space

Hills Preserve proposes to work in partnership with the City of Anaheim to facilitate the preservation and improvement of recreation and open spaces and the significant expansion of the existing Deer Canyon Park Preserve for the benefit of Anaheim Hills and the surrounding communities. It is anticipated these improvements could include new and existing multi-use, public trail systems with convenient parking for visitors, equestrian access, restroom facilities, dog park features and a revitalized Deer Canyon Park Preserve.

Hills Preserve proposes to set aside 46 acres (60%) of what is currently private land as open space, preventing any further urban development of the surrounding area while preserving it for the benefit of the community to enjoy for generations to come.
