A Closer Look at Proposed Developments Near The Outlets at Orange


By: Chad Kim

Developer, Greenlaw Partners, proposes to construct a collection of residential developments with a total of 821 apartment units along with a hotel next to The Outlets at Orange. 
Located in the City of Orange, the project sites abut Chapman Avenue and Lewis Street. Greenlaw Partners proposes to construct three apartment buildings on three separate project sites and is collectively known as the Orange Collection. The project involves reusing the surface parking to create infill development. The project sites currently have office buildings which are not a part of this project.

Chapman Apartments:

This project site (5.79 acre) is located north-west of the Outlets at Orange and is near the intersection of Chapman Avenue and Lewis Street. This project involves a proposed five story apartment building with a total of 277 units. The height of the five story building will be up to 65 feet tall, 70 feet when including stairwell structure and 75 feet when including the elevator shaft. Parking will be provided in a six level structure with a total of about 510 vehicle parking spaces (five above ground and one below ground) that is wrapped around by the apartment building. An additional separate parking structure will be constructed for the existing eight story office building located at 3800 West Chapman Avenue.
