Senior housing plan in the works at Pinecrest

The 11-acre property at Wilbur and Hodencamp roads is back on the market after a previous deal between Pinecrest and KB Home fell apart. KB had come before the City Council in August 2016 looking to build 114 townhomes. Because the parcel is zoned for institutional use, any type of housing development will require a general plan amendment, necessitating months of public, staff and council review.

While the council voted to allow KB to proceed, it also said the final proposal had to include some element of affordable housing, especially for seniors.

“I would strongly recommend you don’t come back with a project that doesn’t have some public value,” Councilmember Andy Fox said at the Aug. 30, 2016, meeting.

At the time, city staff said the 144 units requested by KB Home would be a major drain on the Measure E bank, which then was calculated to be around 500 units. The bank represents how many available units the council has left to assign to the general plan before a vote of the people is required under Measure E, the voter-instituted citywide residential and commercial cap.

Park Sorrento development draws interest

Between the Paxton housing construction and the proposed West Village condominiums and shopping center on Las Virgenes Road—and the Avanti apartments being built on Park Sorrento—new housing construction in Calabasas continues to move forward.

Some residents support the city’s added development, but others are concerned that Calabasas has forever lost its small-town feel.

Among the proposed developments is the Raznick mixed-use project, a senior housing and commercial real estate development at 23480 Park Sorrento.

Woodland Hills- based Raznick Realty Group, which owns the 1.92-acre property, held a community forum at the Calabasas Civic Center on Nov. 1 to inform the public about the project and to answer questions from residents.

About 25 people turned out to hear Ken Stockton, the project’s architect, explain the proposed design.

Called Calabasas Creekside Senior Apartments, the development comprises 41,000 square feet and includes a four-story apartment building with 42 senior-friendly units and a 1,620-square-foot commercial building at the front of the property. Five of the apartments would be designated as affordable housing.

acorn housing?

Has anybody heard of them? Used them? Or know somebody who has? We're fist time home owners, and need a little help-they seem legit and have alot to offer..anybody have an opinion on these kinds of programs?

I've met with them before, they are legit. They help with first time home buyers with mortgages and finding low income homes. They didn't ask for a fee, but there is a charge to become a member, but I don't know if its required.
