5 Areas in Anaheim Experiencing Revitalization
What will your neighborhood in Anaheim look like within the next few years? If you’re thinking ‘very different,’ you’re probably right on the money. The City of Anaheim’s Community and Economic Development office recently hosted an event showcasing a number of innovative projects that are changing the look and feel of the city.
In some cases, the revitalization is part of a larger, joint-effort which includes several surrounding Orange County cities like Garden Grove, Buena Park, La Habra, Huntington Beach, Westminster, and Stanton. Daniel Shaunt and Darren Barkev, Partners at Reeco (the sustainable real estate company offering complimentary solar power systems and free electricity to all home buyers and home sellers), attended the event to learn more about the most significant in-progress and upcoming projects that could soon revolutionize your neighborhood.
They’re sharing what they learned, below. Read on to get a birds’-eye view of what your community will look like in the near future.
Then, check back on our Reeco Friendly blog in the upcoming months for an in-depth article covering each of these five community development projects. As these projects progress, Reeco will be sharing essential information, such as the areas affected, what residents can expect, project timelines, anticipated impacts on property values, and more.
Beach Boulevard Corridor of Highway 39
The Beach Boulevard Coalition, a group of cities dedicated to cleaning up and rebranding Beach Boulevard, will end the piecemeal management of portions of Beach Boulevard and ensuring a standardized look that showcases Orange County’s beauty. Forget the Beach Boulevard you thought you knew!
“This is an exciting undertaking that will benefit a lot of Orange County residents,” says Shaunt. “It is the first project of its kind for Beach Boulevard, one that is bringing together multiple cities—La Habra, Huntington Beach, and Westminster, just to name a few—in an effort to beautify our communities. This is not only great for homeowners’ property values in the area, but for promoting tourism as well.”
Nestled in the heart of Anaheim, Center City is an urban environment bordered by Lincoln Avenue, South Harbor Boulevard, West Broadway, and North Anaheim Boulevard. It is one of the most creative, dynamic portions of the city that encompasses a mix of civic, office, residential, and commercial properties. It will soon also feature hundreds of new apartments, townhomes, and single-family units!
The Platinum Triangle is a lively district of Anaheim that includes three major landmarks: Angels Stadium (the official baseball stadium of the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim), Honda Center (an indoor arena that is home to the Anaheim Ducks hockey team), and the City National Grove of Anaheim (an indoor music venue).
Though it used to encompass mostly commercial and industrial properties, the Platinum Triangle is now transforming into a more resident-friendly area full of energetic breweries and delicious eateries—Karl Strauss Brewing Company, Golden Road Brewing, The Catch, and Zov’s Anaheim, just to name a few.
“Until recently, this area was a ghost-town on weeknights and weekends. However, the dramatic growth of residential and introduction of ‘Third-Place’ social environments where people can eat, relax, worship, and exercise has brought life to the Platinum Triangle. In addition to the convenience of having retail options close by for residents and event attendees, this revitalization helps keep revenue within the community and avoid leakage to outside areas,” says Barkev.
Orange County’s largest contiguous industrial area as well as the second largest manufacturing sector, the Anaheim Canyon spans a whopping 2,600 acres of land. The area already contains 800 businesses, and will soon be home to Link OC, a 406-unit apartment complex covering 5,000 square feet.
“The plan is to transform the area into an urban paradise—a great mix of work and play,” explains Barkev. “In several years, you won’t even recognize it.”
The Anaheim Resort
Tourists already love the Disneyland area, that’s no surprise. They’re going to love it even more in the near future when they see The Anaheim Resort™, a tourist-oriented center that includes theme parks, a convention center, and restaurants and retail. Notable five-diamond, luxury hotels set to come to the area are the Downtown Disney Hotel, JW Marriott, and the Westin.
“The hotel inventory in this market must be able to cater to a diverse range of business and leisure travelers from all of over the world,” says Shaunt. “With so much large-scale development activity focusing on high-end luxury accommodations, we are noticing that older, existing hotels are renovating and repositioning their properties to meet the demand of value-conscious travelers, including families. That said, Reeco is presenting a rare opportunity for hotel investors to enter this otherwise tight market with the recent offering of the Days Inn by Wyndham in Anaheim.”
