A few weeks ago, the Orange City News ran a story about a possible
housing development planned for Orange-Olive Road. At last week's
City Council meeting, the tentative designs and a zone change for
said project were approved.
Let Lady Orange refresh readers on the development:
MBK Homes is planning to build 25 single-family, detached homes on
a 2.33-acre site at 2025 Orange-Olive Road, which up until now has
been used for recreational vehicle storage.
The proposed homes are two stories ranging from 2,412 to 2,519
square feet each. Most units would be three bedrooms with some
four-bedroom options and each would have a two-door garage and
private yard. All landscaping is planned to be low-water use and
maintained by a homeowners association.
Now that the zone change and tract map are approved, MBK will be
finalizing plans with the city and obtaining a building permit.
Sunti Kumjim, MBK's associate vice president of planning, told Lady
Orange in a previous interview that he expects construction to begin
around April and conclude in two to three years.
