259 apartments approved for northeast Rancho Cucamonga – San Bernardino Sun

The first of what may be three apartment complexes built along Historic Route 66 in northeast Rancho Cucamonga won the Planning Commission’s approval last week.

A developer received permission to build a mostly residential project with some commercial uses on one of the three nearly adjacent empty lots in the northeast section of Rancho Cucamonga, located east of the 15 Freeway and north of the Auto Club Speedway.

The Planning Commission on April 13 approved Wood Partners’ plan to construct a mixed-use project with apartments and commercial spaces on a 5.2-acre empty lot at the southeast corner of Foothill Boulevard (also known as Historic Route 66) and Etiwanda Avenue.

An apartment complex with some commercial units was approved on April 13, 2022 for the “project site” in Rancho Cucamonga. Developers have expressed interest in other empty lots to the north. (image from city of Rancho Cucamonga staff report)

Other housing developers have expressed interest in building similar projects on two other vacant lots adjacent to the Wood Partners parcel. One is located directly north, on the other side of Route 66, and the other northwest, across Etiwanda Avenue, said Matt Burris, deputy city manager for community development on Tuesday, April 19.

The two future projects are in the very early stages and therefore little information is available on them, said Burris.

“There’s a lot of interest in all the vacant land in the city,” Burris said.

Wood Partners’ project was approved, having gone through design and environmental reviews. The next step would be construction, once the developer takes out a building permit, Burris said. He did not have a timetable for when construction would start.

The project will consist of 259 apartments, plus one live-work unit and two true commercial units on the ground floors. There will be 184 one-bedroom apartments, 55 two-bedroom units and 20 three-bedroom units. The live-work unit is a one-bedroom, two-story apartment with about 816 square feet of commercial space.

It will be built as two large buildings, each with varying heights ranging from one story to four stories tall. The variable design is an attempt to avoid a monolithic mass, Burris explained.

The project will have a density of 50 dwelling units per acre, the city reported.

Each building will be inspired by Spanish-style architecture and each will have a courtyard with trees and a pedestrian walkway with patio furniture.

The project’s amenities will include: a business center, gym, pool and spa, a children’s play area and a fenced dog run.
