Arcadia Property Making Way for Townhomes

Brandywine Homes has closed on a .82-acre site at 136 Las Tunas Drive in Arcadia, with plans to build 178 three-story contemporary townhomes.  Groundbreaking for the community, dubbed Griffin, is scheduled to break ground in April 2015, with delivery expected by December 2015.

"The increased demand for housing in Arcadia has pushed pricing for single-family detached homes into ranges many people cannot afford," said David Barisic, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Brandywine.  "These townhomes will certainly be more affordable than the majority of what is on the market now."

Brandywine plans to build 17 three-story, two-, three-and-four-bedroom townhomes ranging from 1,265 to 2,205 square feet in size.  Most of the units will offer full side-by-side garages, and all will feature contemporary architecture, stainless steel appliances and solid-surface counters.

Residents of the new community, located between El Monte Avenue and South Santa Anita Avenue, will have access to the Arcadia school system.  The development is located just over 3 miles away from the 210 Freeway, with proximity to major destinations such as Santa Anita Park, Westfield Santa Ana, the Santa Anita Golf Course and downtown Pasadena.

Prices for the townhomes are expected to range from the high $600,000s to the high $900,000s.


  1. I saw in the local news (Ch 9 I think) last night about Arcadia City Council rejected some development proposal. Do you know which project was that about?

    1. Google search yields no results! Not sure.

    2. Thanks to the Brown Act, City Council agendas are all online. Yesterday's is here - only development proposals on the agenda seem to be SFRs. http://www2.ci.arcadia.ca.us/weblink/Browse.aspx?startid=722320&dbid=0

  2. Must be something from earlier this week, or last week. With all the McMansions that Arcadia has permitted for rich Chinese immigrants, it's surprising that they'd reject anything.
