Village Partners Acquires Mixed-Use Multifamily Development Site in Montclair, California With Plans to Commence Construction
A joint venture between Village Partners Ventures, LLC ("Village Partners") of Newport Beach, California and The Bascom Group, LLC ("Bascom") of Irvine, California has closed on a construction loan and six acre land acquisition for a mixed-use project at 5050 Arrow Highway, Montclair, California. The sale and loan closed on December 28, 2021.

JLL's capital markets team in Newport Beach, led by Mark Erland and Matt Benson, secured a $77 million construction loan from Citizens of Providence, Rhode Island for construction of the project. The land purchase price was $10 million.

We are pleased to reach this milestone with Village at Montclair, a transformative project that will be a first in the area, a transit-oriented mixed-use development walkable to Montclair Place and transit."

Village Partners principal Don Henry

Designed by New Urbanist design firm Torti Gallas, Village at Montclair, a mixed-use infill redevelopment with 350-units, is a Type V mid-rise project with combination of structured and surface parking, designed as a walkable transit village with housing, ground floor retail, and public spaces including a Village Square and the Station Promenade. The project has a direct pedestrian connection to the Montclair Transit Station and future Metro Goldline. 

Village at Montclair is designed to celebrate the inviting Mediterranean climate and San Gabriel Mountain views of Montclair, with elements including a mixture of Spanish and Italian architecture, abundant public space, walkable streetscapes, landscaped courtyards, and a rooftop deck. Warm California Modern interiors by Mannigan Design thoughtfully complement the architecture. Project amenities include pool and spa, co-working suites, clubhouse, parcel lockers, and a state-of-the-art fitness facility.

The project is located within the City's North Montclair Downtown Specific Plan. The plan covers 200 acres of land surrounding Village at Montclair and sets the standards for the creation of an urban, walkable district surrounding the TransCenter and future Goldline, with up to 2,500 new residential units and commercial space planned over the next decade. This District and the Project site are adjacent to the prestigious Claremont College consortium. Construction of Village at Montclair will commence in January 2022 by general contractor Johnstone Moyer Inc.

Local government and the property industry are inextricably linked. However, local governments often fall far short of the mark in their regulatory duties. Some councils, and some jurisdictions, perform better than others. However the Property Council believes that there is significant room for improvement across the board. This benchmarking study should provide a blueprint for best practice in local government regulation, and show a clear path for a more efficient and effective local government sector.
