Kennedy Wilson to Master Develop Mixed-Unit Community in Partnership with California State University Channel Islands


Kennedy Wilson has inked a long-term ground lease for a 32-acre parcel in Camarillo, owned by California State University Channel Islands (CSUCI), and unveiled plans for a new, 589-unit mixed-residential community.

Kennedy Wilson was awarded the development opportunity via public RFP and has re-entitled the land for a master plan that will deliver 310 market-rate apartments, 109 for-sale homes, 170 income-restricted apartments for seniors, as well as community-serving amenities to the University-adjacent site at the western edge of the Santa Monica Mountains.

“Developing this new community is an important step in our larger partnership with CSUCI and will meaningfully contribute to a region that is short on supply of high-quality apartments and homes for faculty, staff and local residents,” said Kennedy Wilson Managing Director Nick Bridges, who structured the partnership with CSUCI. “Many people are rethinking how and where they want to live, and we continue to see a trend of residents moving from city centers towards communities that have access to the outdoors, are commutable to major employment centers, and are relatively affordable. Camarillo and CSUCI are uniquely positioned to benefit from this renewed interest in suburban living.”

As master developer, Kennedy Wilson has assembled a top-tier team that will break ground in Q4 2021. Kennedy Wilson will develop the wholly owned apartments and Kennedy Wilson’s affordable housing joint venture, Vintage Housing, will use a combination of affordable housing tax credits and other financing sources to build and offer 170 apartment homes to income-qualified seniors. The townhome sites will be built and sold by Comstock Homes in a joint venture that includes Kennedy Wilson as a minority partner, as well as Hearthstone.

The yet-to-be-named project is a continuation of a seven-year partnership between Kennedy Wilson and CSUCI. Kennedy Wilson originally acquired an existing wholly owned 386-unit apartment community and the 15k sf of retail from CSUCI in the adjacent University Glen neighborhood in 2016 and has since invested approximately $8 mil to enhance unit interiors and the community’s amenities.

Kennedy Wilson has also committed $1.5 mil toward the future construction of an Early Childhood Education center on the CSUCI campus to provide affordable, high-quality early childhood education to the region’s underserved population. The center will serve as a training experience for students in the University’s School of Education and will provide support to student parents in attaining their educational goals.

The soon-to-be-named development project contributes to Kennedy Wilson’s growing global development pipeline totaling approximately 4,700 multifamily units that are currently expected to deliver by 2024 and will expand Kennedy Wilson’s global multifamily portfolio to over 33,000 units once they are complete.

Including this 32-acre development in Camarillo, CA, Kennedy Wilson is progressing on a 3,800-unit Western U.S. development pipeline, including the second phase of construction at 38° North in Santa Rosa, California; The Oxbow in Bozeman, Montana; and Dovetail in Boise, Idaho. Within the Western U.S. development pipeline, approximately 1,600 units are under construction through Vintage Housing, Kennedy Wilson’s growing affordable and senior housing joint venture. In Ireland, where Kennedy Wilson is one of the country’s most active multifamily real estate investors and operators, nearly 1,000 new multifamily units are in various stages of development at prominent Dublin projects including The Cornerstone on the former Leisureplex site, The Grange and Coopers Cross.
