Core Spaces, the developer of the Hub on Campus Coliseum and the Hub on Campus Figueroa, will next build the Hub Fullerton - a new project at 2601 E. Chapman Avenue near Cal State Fullerton, Hope International University, and Pacific Christian College. Plans call for a six-story development featuring 359 residential units - including 1,047 beds - as well as a ground-floor commercial space.

“The building is designed with the students in mind. Lush landscaping, ample outdoor spaces, attention to local contextual materials and styles, and a highly amenitized program are all curated to make this building stand out from any other residential building in the area,” said Nathan Casteel, a principal with DLR Group, which is designing the project. “The project respects the context and enhances the public realm making this a project that contributes to the community. Bringing retail to this site will help revitalize the gateway to the campus and provide a more walkable community for its residents.”

The project, in addition to housing, will incorporate a rooftop deck, workspaces, fitness areas, and a publicly accessible paseo at street level. Plans call for a mix of traditional flats and townhome-style units with ground-floor terraces.
