Local Property Management Firm Celebrates New Residential Properties
S.L. Leonard & Associates held a ribbon cutting at the Vista del Rio Apartments in Santa Ana and a ground-breaking ceremony for Cabrillo Gateway Apartments at the Villages at Cabrillo in Long Beach, on Feb. 24.
“There is a great need for quality affordable housing in these communities and both projects address areas of special need,” said Sean Leonard, president and founder. “Vista del Rio adds much-needed housing for people with disabilities, while Cabrillo Gateway enables small families taking part in the Long Beach Housing Authority’s rent-subsidy program to have a home.”
S.L. Leonard & Associates worked with A Community of Friends to help with the preconstruction, contracts, construction management and development of the Vista del Rio Apartments. The $13 million, 41-unit apartment building will provide homes for developmentally and physically disabled adults in Santa Ana.
In Long Beach, S.L. Leonard & Associates worked with Century Villages at Cabrillo, providing preconstruction and construction management to create the fourth housing project at the Villages. The ground-breaking ceremony celebrates the beginning of the Cabrillo Gateway at the Villages at Cabrillo, an 80-unit complex geared to small households. The Children’s Clinic will operate a federally qualified health clinic on the ground floor of the complex, to provide health and wellness services.
S.L. Leonard & Associates has worked with Century Villages at Cabrillo since 2010, assisting with and helping to implement its Master Plan for the 26-acre residential campus established on a former US Naval housing site. The firm has also worked on projects to develop 81 units of permanent housing for formerly homeless families and individuals and a new community service building.
