Bernards, a Los Angeles-based construction services firm, has announced the construction of the residential component of Pacific City, a large mixed-use development in Huntington Beach.
The project - which was designed by MVE & Partners - is currently rising from a 17-acre site at 21002 Pacific Coast Highway. Plans call for the construction of six low-rise structuress arranged in a crescent shape. Each building will consist of four levels of wood-frame construction above a concrete podium and an underground parking garage. Bernards is targeting either LEED Gold or Silver certification for the project.
In total, the development will create 516 residential units, as well as a 12,000-square foot amenity center featuring a swimming pool, a gym and an entertainment center. The amenity center will also abut a public park.
The residential community - which is being developed Colorado-based UDR, Inc. - is one component of the larger Pacific City complex, which spans 31 acres on a former oil field near the Huntington Beach Pier. An official website states that Pacific City's retail center will include over 190,000 square feet of shops and restaurants, office space and a 400-key hotel.
