Just outside the commercial core of South Pasadena, construction is underway on Eight Twenty, a collection of for-sale homes from the Intracorp Companies, a Newport Beach-based real estate development firm.

The project, named for its address at 820 Mission Street, is rising from an approximately two-acre site located a short distance east of the city's at-grade Gold Line light rail station.  Plans call for a total of 38 townhomes and condominium units, with two-to-three-bedroom floor plans ranging from 1,148 square feet to 2,222 square feet in size.

The development, which is designed in the Spanish Colonial style, will offer high-quality finishes and a number of customizable design features.

Completion is expected by later this year.  Sales prices start in the low $800,000s.
