Orange Garden Apartments in Poway Re-Opens After $15.3M Upgrade
- Oct 05, 2012
Orange Garden Apartments is the newest addition to Poway’s roster of affordable housing communities. Affirmed Housing Group recently announced the grand re-opening of the property after it bought the former market-rate complex and completed a $15.3 million renovation. Eligible residents include those earning 30 percent to 60 percent of the local median income.
The six-building complex comprises 52 units with one, two or three bedrooms. Highlights of the renovation included new floors, cabinets, appliances and carpets. On the exterior, Affirmed Housing upgraded landscaping, fencing, roofs and stucco.
Amenities include a pool, a community room, computer room, tot lot and on-site parking. Monthly rents range from $419 to $1043.
Affirmed Housing Group President James Silverwood commented that the company is “extremely pleased with the outcome of our first partnership with the City of Poway.” In 2011, the city invested $10 million in road and sewer improvements to the area. That enhanced the market appeal of properties like Orange Garden Apartments and Oak Knoll Villas, a complex across the street that was similarly converted to affordable housing after a recent renovation.
