Hesperia, CA – On August 24, 2016 at 9:00 a.m., the City of Hesperia will celebrate the groundbreaking of “the Villas, a 55+ community” developed and managed by Eagle Real Estate Group of Newport Beach, CA. The Villas, a senior apartment complex, will provide housing for low- and moderate-income seniors.
“The Villas will fill an important need for the seniors who wish to maintain a residence near their family and friends in the High Desert, but who are no longer interested in maintaining their large home and property which is commonly found here. The Villas offers an affordable solution in an accommodating community setting,” said Hesperia Mayor Bill Holland.
The City’s newest senior housing project is located on the north side of Avenal Street, east of Mariposa Road with convenient access to I-15, Main Street and Bear Valley Road. The Villas is being developed on a portion of 9.41 acres, and will consist of 96 units including 64 one-bedroom/one bath units and 32 two-bedroom/one-and-a-half bath units in four two-story buildings containing 24 units each; 629-square-foot one bedroom apartments, and 875-square-foot two-bedroom apartments.
The fully gated and fenced complex offers a safe haven complete with security cameras and elevators, and provides amenities meant to impart a strong sense of community. Residents will enjoy a clubhouse with kitchen facilities, computer center, fitness center, lap pool, Jacuzzi, barbecues, and outdoor seating, and even a dog park. Each apartment includes individual washer and dryer, refrigerator, patio balcony, and ceiling fans.
“We are pleased to see the addition of this high quality, income-eligible senior living community to Hesperia’s housing inventory,” said Economic Development Manager Rod Yahnke. “The City is committed to seeing projects developed that provide housing options for actively independent seniors.”
The Villas in Hesperia will replicate Eagle’s highly successful Santa Barbara Mission Style 55+ senior apartments in Colton. Residents of the Colton Villas have glowing recommendations about their move to a new apartment lifestyle and enjoy the quiet, clean and safe environment. Lydia Toscano, a Villas resident since July 2014, said, “With all the activities that are offered such as bible study, luncheons, dances, bingo, and yoga just to name a few, I have been able to make many new friends.”
“Expanding the Eagle brand into Hesperia with its continuing growth allows us the potential to develop long-term community relationships and future opportunities for serving High Desert seniors,” says Randy Friend, Principal and CEO of Eagle Real Estate Group.
Eagle Real Estate Group will begin taking reservations for its Hesperia apartments beginning this month for an anticipated completion in Spring of 2017. Call 909-370-4552 for waiting list information.
