New Seniors Project Proposed for Rancho Palos Verdes

A new Seniors residential project has been proposed on Crestridge Road, just above the Peninsula Center. The proposed project is bordered by the Belmont Assisted Living facility to the west, and the newly completed Mirandela Senior Apartments to the East at the corner of Crenshaw and Crestridge Road.

The following is a description of the proposed project from the proposal filed by the developer with the City of Rancho Palos Verdes:

The proposed Crestridge Senior Housing project would involve the development of a senior restricted (55+ years of age or older) for-sale residential community. The proposed project would include 60 attached residential units at an overall density of 6.15 units per acre. Of the 60 units, three units would be dedicated affordable units available to very-low-income households, in accordance with the City’s inclusionary housing requirements. The proposed townhome style and single-level living stacked flat residences would have two bedrooms and two bathrooms in six different floor plans, ranging from approximately 1,700 square feet to 2,100 square feet. The units would be two stories in height with up to 5 residences per structure. The main architectural style of the residences and other onsite structures would be Spanish Colonial. Elements of this style include the use of arches, tile roofs, window grilles, wrought iron, corbels, tile or stone decorative elements low-pitched, exterior courtyards, tiled parapets and stucco walls. Other complimentary architectural styles would also be incorporated in the residential building designs. Construction of the proposed project would require grading in order to reduce the slope of portions of the hillside. This would require 145,000 cubic yards of cut and 2,000 cubic yards of fill. Construction would be completed in the year 2015. 

 Community Amenities. The project would include a number of community amenities. A private community trail system would be provided in open space areas to the north, near the highest elevations in the area, thereby offering views of the local area and the greater Los Angeles Basin to the north. A portion of the on-site trails including a pedestrian connection from Crestridge to the preserve would be open to the public. The public trails would also connect the off-site City trails on the neighboring Preserve with Crestridge Road through the proposed development. The community trails would also access the proposed 13,000-square foot community recreation area located at the northeastern corner of the site. The amenities proposed for this area would include a patio and trellis, a community conversation and gathering stage, a sundeck and outdoor living room, barbeque facilities, bocce ball courts, and picnic tables.
