We are committed to ensuring that this project meets the high 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 City. 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. By 2029, the city is required to construct over 17,000 new residential units. An increase of more than 300% from previous targets.
Unfortunately, the amount of vacant land in Anaheim is scarce, so the City has to work efficiently with what is currently available to meet this goal.
The city was presented with two 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 track neighborhood would only account for 34 residential units. Which is far from reaching the mandatory goal for the City of Anaheim.
The Hills Preserve will Provide 504 New Residential Units.
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.
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 been accessible to the general public. Our plan includes the rehabilitation of 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 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:

Development Land Use
Hills Club & Preserve
A Premier Multifamily Destination
Future Luxury Homesites
Future Commercial Pads
Designated by Land Use
Hills Club & Preserve apartments will be developed on 14 acres and include up to 498 units set down well below the hillside. It will include Studios, 1-Bedroom, 2-Bedroom and 3-Bedroom apartment 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 beautiful, landscaped entrance off Santa Ana Canyon Road and a grand porte-cochere complete with elements of fire and water with all resident parking 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.

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 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. 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 all City of Anaheim residents.
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.
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.
Traffic and Evacuation
The new Deer Canyon Road will be designated only for park visitors and residents. It will not be a thru-way for large trucks, semis, and daily commuters.
Our team of engineers has done extensive testing and studies in the event of an emergency evacuation and found that with the installation of a signalized intersection, designated park entrances, and a new city street, the canyon will be safer and more enjoyable for visitors than ever before.
Not only will Hills Preserve residents be safe, but the newly built road will allow nearby neighborhoods to evacuate in the event of an emergency quicker and safer than ever before.
With the implementation of fire-hardened construction materials, coupled with fuel modification zones, the project will reduce the overall risk of wildfires significantly.
New fire hydrants will be placed throughout the canyon leading to more accessible water sources along with new fire truck access points and faster response times.
The natural beauty will be protected and the canyon will be safer than it has ever been.
