The proposed development, located at 2020-2110 E. 1st Street, calls for the construction of a six-story building that would feature 552 rental dwellings above approximately 10,000 square feet of ground-floor retail space and a 620-car parking garage. Plans call for a mix of one-, two-, three-, and four-bedroom units, which are described as "affordable family apartments."
Architects Orange is designing the podium-type complex, which will incorporate eight interior courtyards, which are being designed by Thomas H. Phelps Landscape Architecture.
According to a staff report on the project, AMG would offer shuttle service for residents, with a direct connection to the Santa Ana Civic Center and commuter rail station.
A staff recommendation to the Planning Commission suggests approval of the AMG project, which is being called "First Point."
