Meta Housing Corporation and Western Community Housing to Develop OC Affordable Housing Project


Meta Housing Corporation and Western Community Housing plan to develop a three-story, 65-unit, affordable and permanent supportive housing multifamily community in Westminster. The $42 mil development will provide quality affordable housing for qualifying large families and individuals throughout Orange County, as well as individuals experiencing varying levels of homelessness.

“Market-rate rents in Orange County reached the highest level on record at the end of 2019. This is making affordable housing increasingly more difficult to find, especially for larger families. It is also resulting in an influx homelessness across the county,” said Kasey Burke, President of Meta Housing. “Westminster Crossing will fill a deep need in the community by providing safe, spacious, and well-amenitized apartments that are affordably priced, easing the burden on some of these renters.”

Meta Housing partnered with the City of Westminster, County of Orange, California Housing Finance Agency (CalHFA), U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development; Capital One Bank; California Community Reinvestment Corporation; and Red Stone Equity Partners to finance the project.

According to Vice Chairman of the Orange County Board of Supervisors Andrew Do, “Affordable housing increases our capacity to serve those experiencing homelessness. Of the 65 units in Westminster Crossing, 20 will be designated specifically for households experiencing homelessness, bringing us one step closer toward ending homelessness in Orange County.”

Westminster Crossing will be designed to incorporate a host of community spaces that will be purpose driven, according to Burke. Programmed space within the new development will include a homework room, conference rooms, art studio/maker space, a gym/fitness/dance room, and a community room, as well as management and service-provider offices.

The project will also be focused on fostering a holistic environment for residents by providing resident services including adult educational classes, health and wellness programs and skill-building courses, Burke adds. To provide these services, Meta Housing is partnering with co-developer Western Community Housing. Robust wrap-around supportive-services will be provided by TAO Central to those households requiring additional assistance to thrive in the community.

Westminster Crossing will be constructed to feature residential units with fully equipped kitchens and private bathrooms, and dishwashers, as well as hard flooring and carpet. The project will include 89 parking spaces,10 bicycle parking spaces, and common-area amenities such as a community garden, outdoor lounge with barbecue area, synthetic turf play area, and a tot lot.

Meta Housing Corporation and Western Community Housing will serve as co-developers and general partners on the project. KPRS Construction Services Inc will serve as the project’s general contractor, with IMG as construction manager, Y&M Architects as architect, and MJS as landscape architect.

Westminster Crossing will be located at 7122 Westminster Blvd in Westminster, within a quarter mile of bus stops, a park, grocery stores, schools, and a pharmacy, and within a mile of a medical center and a library. The project is expected to be completed in fall 2021 and will be managed by John Stewart Company.
