In Westminster's Little Saigon district, phase two of the Bolsa Row development is getting underway.

On July 25, R.D. Olson Construction announced the groundbreaking of Bolsa Row Terrace, which will add roughly 26,000 square feet of retail and restaurant space to the complex at Bolsa Avenue and Brookhurst Street. Plans also call for roughly 120 parking spaces located at-grade and in one subterranean level.

The six-acre complex, which is being developed by Joanna and Bac Pham through the entity IP Westminster, LLC, has already seen the completion of the 200-unit Bolsa Row Apartments to the south in September 2022. A third phase of the project, which will follow Bolsa Row Terrace, will bring a 148-room Wyndham hotel to the property at a later date.

“It’s always rewarding to work on projects designed to unite communities,” said R.D. Olson Construction president Bill Wilhelm in a news release. “We are proud of our partnership with the Pham family and IP Westminster as we support them in bringing this new town center to the local community.” 

Bolsa Row Terrace, which will be given the address 10000 Bolsa Avenue, is being designed by architecture firm Robinson Hill. The two-story building is intended to reference French colonial architecture common in pre-war Vietnam, incorporating arches, ironwork, and glass atrium overlooking a landscaped courtyard. The commercial space, split roughly evenly between retail and restaurant uses, is expected to accommodate parties, concerts, and night markets. It is highlighted by a new clock tower and mansard roof, which pay homage to Vietnam's Bến Thành Market.

Other members of the project team include MJS Landscape Architecture and Avanti Development Partners.

Completion of Bolsa Row Terrace is slated for the early part of 2024, at which point spaces will be ready for tenant build-out.

“My family’s roots run deep in Westminster,” said IP Westminster chief operating officer Jaimie Nguyen. “In 1975, we found our home here when this country graciously welcomed my parents, and so many others, as refugees. After nearly 50 years, our family still continues to eat, work and pray right here in this same community, so we’re excited to see Bolsa Row Terrace serve as another element to the revitalization of Little Saigon.”
