Just east of OCMA's and the Segerstrom Center, developer Legacy Partners has completed work on a new multifamily residential complex at the former site of a church in Santa Ana.

Pulling from the project's location at 651 W. Sunflower Avenue, the Bay Area-based developer has stuck with a flower-themed name for the new apartment complex: Bloom. The five-story building includes a mix of studio, one-, and two-bedroom dwellings, ranging from 601 to 1,195 square feet in size, with rents starting at $2,575 per month.

“Bloom will provide much-needed rental opportunities in Orange County while offering residential amenities not typically found in apartment communities,” said Legacy Partners senior managing director Tim O’Brien in a news release. “Our goal was to build open social spaces so residents can come together and connect with their neighbors.

TCA Architects is the apartment complex, which is a wrap-style apartment complex clad in metal panels, stone veneer, and brick. The "California contemporary" style building features an array of on-site amenities, including a dog park, multiple courtyards, and two rooftop decks on the exterior, and a co-working space, a fitness room, and a business center inside.

The project was developed in partnership with equity partner DWS Group, as well as civil engineering firm Kinley-Horn structural engineering firm DCI, landscape designer BMLA, and general contractor JMI.

While recent additions like Bloom and OCMA's new museum have brought new investment to this corner of Orange County, those projects pale in comparison to what Related California has in the works for the Metro Town Square shopping center a few blocks to the west. The roughly 42-acre site could see the construction of up to 4,000 homes, a hotel, and other commercial uses.
