Westminster Crossing is the proposed new construction of 65-units of affordable housing within the City of Westminster.  The project aims to create a more vibrant, sustainable, and equitable community within the City’s envisioned “Downtown” activity center.

Of the 65 units, 44 are devoted to working individuals and/or families earning between 20% and 70% of Orange County’s median income.

One unit will be designated for an onsite building manager, who will reside at the property, ensuring that the residents and the neighboring community have a constant point of contact should any issues arise. The remaining 20 units will be permanent supportive housing units serving individuals experiencing homelessness and Orange County Health Care Agency (OCHCA) clients with complex physical and behavioral health conditions.

While Westminster Crossing is entirely residential, it is designed to resemble a mixed-use building.  The mixed-use theme will be carried throughout the development, accented with large floor to ceiling storefront glass, steel canopies over the sidewalks, distinct massing on the ground level, window art displays, two murals, and patios mimicking outdoor retail seating courts along the Locust Boulevard frontage.  The development’s common amenities, including the art studio/maker space, fitness center, and community room will be oriented along the Westminster Boulevard street edge, ensuring regular activation of those spaces. The project will bring vitality to an area which is currently void of pedestrians, expanding the neighborhood to connect to existing and future redevelopment of Westminster Boulevard.
