On October 2, construction officialy began for the Salinas Avenue Home Ownership Project, a new development of single family houses in unincorporated Willowbrook.
The project, which comes from Olson Homes, is slated for a vacant 9.5-acre lot at 13024 Salinas Avenue. Olson intends to develop 94 for-sale homes on the property.
As part of a condition in its agreement to purchase the land from Los Angeles County, 30 of the houses will be set aside for moderate-income and lower-income buyers for a term of 45 years. The Los Angeles County Community Development Commissions will provide mortage assistance for buyers during this time period.
Prices start at $80,000 for the income restricted houses, and $400,000 for other buyers.
Sales are expected to begin in 2018, although the project will not be fully built out until late 2019 or early 2020.
