Two abandoned school sites will be converted into brand new Huntington Beach real estate. The Wardlow School and Lamb School sites will provide the locations for a dual redevelopment project headed up by Tri Pointe Homes. Not only will the sites provide space for 130 homes but there is a vast amount of acreage being reserved for public parks and recreational facilities. It’s another example of how Huntington Beach continues to be one of the busiest and most vital areas for home building, relocation and real estate investment in Southern California.
Many residents at the City Council felt very positive about the announcement, given that empty sites like Wardlow and Lamb can attract graffiti taggers and criminal activity. So not only will the new project create construction jobs and introduce brand new builds to the Huntington Beach real estate market, but the overall community will be improved by utilizing landscapes that until now have remained desolate.
All Huntington residents will be able to enjoy the basketball courts, parks, soccer field and grassy fields intended to be included in the redevelopment plan. And while there was concern about the amount of development and size of the new homes intended, only a select amount of land was actually allowed to be purchased between the two sites, ensuring that overcrowding does not become an issue.
The real estate future looks bright for Huntington Beach and now is the time to be thinking about a first home, new home or selling a piece of property as the marketplace heats back up. The developments at Wardlow and Lamb exhibit this new trend, a trend of which I am more than happy to help you get ahead. Drop me a line today to find out how.
