Ground Breaking Celebration of The Magnolia at Highland
Who: City of San Bernardino Mayor Patrick Morris, Councilmember Rikke Van Johnson, Meta Housing and Western Seniors Housing Presidents.
What: The Ground Breaking Celebration of The Magnolia at Highland, a luxury senior citizen housing complex on the west side of San Bernardino.
When: Wednesday, November 3, 2010 at 11:30 am
Where: The Corner of Highland and Medical Center Drive in San Bernardino
Why: This project transforms a blighted automotive site into 80 units of high quality, affordable housing for seniors, retains a one-acre parcel of land for future sale or development opportunities, and creates a future stream of income that can be used for future developments including senior or single-family housing.
This is a milestone for the City of San Bernardino’s housing plan adopted in October of 2008. The total development cost for the project is $17.5 million. The agency’s agreed upon subsidy for the project is $7 millionfrom Urban Development’s (HUD) Neighborhood Stabilization Program (NSP). These funds are for housing only and cannot be used for city’s general fund.
Visuals: Mayor Patrick Morris and project dignitaries break ground on this $17.5 million project.
