Orange County-based Sagecrest Planning & Development has proposed a new collection of single-family homes adjacent to the Metrolink right-of-way in Anaheim.

The project, called the Downtown Anaheim 39, was considered at the February 4 meeting of the Anaheim Planning Commission.  Plans call for the construction of 39 homes on a 1.57-acre property at 740 East La Palma Avenue that is currently used for RV storage.  Sagecrest is proposing seven three-story buildings, each standing approximately 37 feet in height with a mix of two- and three-bedroom floor plans and 106 parking spaces for residents and guests.

D33 Design & Planning is serving as the project's architect.  A staff report describes the architecture as Spanish-style with smooth stucco walls, wrought-iron Juliet balconies, tile roofs, and decorative shutters

The staff report argued that the project is "designed in a manner that will provide a quality living environment for its future residents and is compatible for land uses."  The report recommended that the Planning Commission sign off on requested entitlements for the project, including a general plan amendment, a conditional use permit, and a zoning reclassification.
