AREA 12 CONCEPT
(Not approved)

Project Description 

The proposed Area 12 project consists of the development of a residential neighborhood with supporting streets, utilities, trails, recreational amenities, and other community infrastructure. The for-sale homes will range in size from 1,800 square feet to 2,250 square feet and include a mix of two- and three-story detached structures.  Each cluster home has 3 to 4 bedrooms, a 2-car garage, and fenced yard space.  

The proposed land planning and architecture design are consistent with the campus Physical Design Framework and existing neighborhoods in both University Hills and the local Irvine area.  Additionally, the proposed project will comply with the green building requirements of the current California Building Code, which emphasizes the State of California’s continued leadership on the environment and green building through policy implementation. ICHA aspires to build a home that can earn either a minimum of a “silver rating” under the Green Point Rated certification or a silver certification under the Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design (LEED) program for homes. 

The proposed Area 12 Project will provide additional for-sale housing to meet the needs of the campus to continue to recruit highly qualified faculty and academic staff. As the university has continued to grow and enjoy greater prestige, and as the cost of market-rate housing continues to climb, the demand for university housing has increased, especially the demand for for-sale housing. Producing and managing that housing in support of the campus is the mission that the Irvine Campus Housing Authority (ICHA) was founded to fulfill. We are grateful for the opportunity to continue to serve UCI and its faculty, staff and all University Hills residents.

LOS TRANCOS POOL & PARK RENEWAL CONCEPT

Project Description

ICHA is excited to introduce the Los Trancos Pool & Park Renewal concept. The Los Trancos pool and park area reimagined will invite more opportunity for recreation, social interaction and community building in a beautifully-landscaped setting. The possibilities for the park area are endless, and we look forward to launching a robust community engagement process to incorporate ideas from Uhills residents into the design.

The renewal project will:

  • Update pool area (plaster, decking, coping, fencing, etc.)
  • Renovate pool bathroom facilities
  • Redesign the park area, increasing circulation and adding community gathering spaces
  • Gather community input via survey (beginning in Summer, 2020)
