Backhoe and Sign


On June 13th, the Azusa City Council along with by representatives from Serrano Development Group and Azusa Block 36, LLC, broke ground on a development project to be known as The Orchard at 626 N. Azusa Blvd.
   
The Orchard will be developed on the southeast corner of Azusa Avenue and Foothill Boulevard on the site formerly known as “Block 36.” This four-story mixed-use development will feature 163 residential units consisting of a mix of one-, two-, three-bedroom, and live/work units. Residential amenities at The Orchard include a swimming pool and spa, community room, fitness room, a dog park, community garden, and rooftop decks. The ground level will include approximately 32,500 square feet of retail and restaurant space, which will be anchored by a 4-screen Laemmle Theatres. Laemmle Theatres is the premier exhibitor of art house cinema with several locations throughout the Los Angeles area.

“A healthy downtown is key to a strong community, “said City of Azusa Mayor, Joseph R. Rocha. “For too long, downtowns have experienced a steady decline. However, today’s ground breaking for this project will help to turn things around. Like many cities in the region, we know that downtowns are the heart of a city-- and having a healthy heart is essential to having a strong city and a vibrant economic base.’

The project aims to bring sophisticated transit-oriented living and engaging retail and restaurants to the Downtown area of Azusa. The Orchard is located just one block south of the Azusa Downtown Gold Line Metro Station.
