AMCAL Multi-Housing’s latest achievement, has received the Kennedy Commission’s Development of the Year Award.

The award was presented at the Commission’s 33rd annual event, which celebrates affordable housing accomplishments in Orange County. Designed by MVE & Partners, Alegre’s 104 affordable homes, with 11 units for special needs households, were made possible through a partnership between the City of Irvine and the Irvine Community Land Trust, with land provided by The Irvine Company. A unique ground lease model provides affordability in perpetuity – the first of its kind in Orange County! The three-level LEED Gold property is located on 3.4 acres adjacent to Cypress Park in Irvine, near an OCTA bus line, market and health clinic. Site amenities include a community room with computer lab, fitness room, pool, splash pad, barbeques and playground.
