We are committed to ensuring that this project meets the highest standards of sustainability and preservation. We are excited to work hand-in-hand with the members of the community to make this project a success and set a new standard for the City of Anaheim.

With a community-first approach, our goal is to create a comprehensive development that takes into account the needs and desires of Anaheim. Hills Preserve will be a luxury destination that offers a beautiful refuge for people to live, work, and play.

Preserve and Provide for The City of Anaheim

THE ANAHEIM HOUSING SHORTAGE

The City of Anaheim is currently facing a major housing challenge.

Unfortunately, the amount of vacant land in Anaheim is scarce, so the City has to work efficiently with the building sites/land currently available to meet this goal.

The city essentially has two housing options to make use of this land. Build a Residential Neighborhood or Luxury Apartments.

With being tasked to utilize the land in the most efficient way possible, building a residential tratk neighborhood would only account for approximately 100 residential units (covering all 76 acres of the site). Which is not much progress toward the mandatory housing goal for the City of Anaheim.

The Hills Preserve will provide 504 new quality homes. while conserving as much of the existing natural environment as open space as possible. The graphic below demonstrates our “clustering” philosophy: by grouping all 498 apartment homes in a single building in one location (the blue building footprint), the majority of the site can be kept as open space for all residents to enjoy. The yellow, magenta, and green designate the same number of houses as the Hills Preserve in adjacent neighborhoods.

Why Build in Anaheim Hills?

Anaheim’s Regional Housing Needs Assessment (RHNA) allocation for 2021-2029 requires over 17,000 residential units, which is more than a 300% increase compared to the previous cycle. To address the severe shortage of housing in Anaheim and surrounding communities, all districts in the City are being challenged to meet this mandate, and we believe that by working together, we can help achieve this and create a community that benefits everyone.


Although Anaheim Hills (District 6) has not traditionally contributed significant numbers of housing units toward meeting the City’s housing needs, this development provides beautiful, luxury housing units befitting the Anaheim Hills community, gives back an enormous amount of open space adjacent to the existing park, and supports the City’s housing goals.

Development Location

Located just one mile (3 mins) off the Weir Canyon exit on Santa Ana Canyon Road in the City of Anaheim, the 76-acre site is situated west of the Festival Shopping Center and directly across from Madison Squares Self Storage facility. The majority of the land is currently zoned as “transitional,” and has remained undeveloped.

 

Additionally, the site is situated north of the Deer Canyon Park Preserve, a park owned by the City that has never really been accessible to all residents. Our plan includes facilitating full public access to the park to make it a safe and enjoyable space for all residents of the City of Anaheim. We’re excited to work with the City and community to bring this vision to life.

A Sustainable Approach to Development

We recognize the need to provide housing for communities and in our approach to development, we endeavor to create a sustainable balance between development and environmental preservation. We are committed to finding environmentally friendly solutions and minimizing the effect on the natural beauty of the environment while meeting the city’s housing needs.

Our Commitment to You:

  • Design or designate 73% of the total land (56 Acres) as Open Space.
  • Add over a mile of multi-use equestrian trails along Santa Ana Canyon Road and up Deer Canyon Road all the way to the park.
  • Provide electric vehicles for residents to “check out” anytime they need a second car.
  • Make available a greater percentage of electrical vehicle (EV) charging stations than other multi-family projects in the City.
  • Design efficient apartments that use only half as much energy as the same single household would in a freestanding house.
    • Fewer Carbon Emissions Per Capita
    • Fewer Maintenance Costs
    • More Sustainable Building Designs
    • Energy-efficient lighting and fixtures
    • More Efficient Heating/Cooling Systems

The public will be met by a beautiful, 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 small thoughtfully designed, single-family neighborhood. These 6 estate homesites will be developed on 7 acres of land that is currently entitled for 34 homes, preventing any further development on the remaining 22 acres of site in perpetuity. This remaining acreage will become designated as open to preserve the existing natural beauty of the canyon and facilitate the virtual expansion of Deer Canyon Park Preserve and its trail systems for the enjoyment of all Anaheim 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, restaurant, 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 the entire City of Anaheim and 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, and picnic areas, resulting in a revitalized Deer Canyon Park Preserve.


In addition to the 13 acres of landscaped open space designed into the project sites, an additional 43 acres of what is currently private land will be designated 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.

Fire Mitigation

Built fire-hardened construction materials, the apartment building
itself will serve as a wildfire barrier and will protect the existing houses to the west if ever necessary.  New fire hydrants will be placed throughout the canyon leading to more accessible water sources along with new fire truck access for faster response times.

New fire hydrants will be installed throughout the canyon leading to more accessible water sources along with new fire truck access points and faster response times.

This development will make the canyon and its
surrounding neighborhood safer than ever.
