Ontario, Calif. — Frontier Real Estate Investments – a privately held commercial real estate investment firm known for its entrepreneurial and innovative approach to development – today announced that it has broken ground on New Haven Marketplace, a new lifestyle center in Ontario Ranch, California. Designed to serve the master planned community of New Haven in Ontario Ranch — the 34th top-selling new home community in the nation (sixth in California) — New Haven Marketplace is anticipated to open in the fall of 2019.
“We seized the opportunity to develop New Haven Marketplace to serve the Ontario Ranch community,” said Dan Almquist, Managing Partner of Newport Beach-based Frontier Real Estate Investments. “Thanks to Brookfield’s vision, this master planned development has quickly become one of the next great places to live in Southern California. We knew that our approach to retail place making would deliver a center to match.”
Known for bringing new life and an authentic sense of community to their mixed-use retail projects, Frontier Real Estate Investments envisions New Haven Marketplace as a lively new destination in the heart of Ontario Ranch. Located on Ontario Ranch Road between New Haven and Haven Avenues, the center will be anchored by Stater Bros. Market and will include a dynamic mix of dining, retail and services spanning approximately 95,000 square feet. Other confirmed tenants at New Haven Marketplace include: Chase Bank, Carl’s Jr., Jersey Mike’s Subs, Dunkin’ Donuts, Kona Cleaners, Pacific Dental Services, and Great Clips.
New Haven Marketplace will pay homage to Ontario’s rich agrarian history with farmhouse-inspired architecture and extensive landscaping. To appeal to Millennials — who represent more than 50 percent of buyers at New Haven — the Frontier team is placing a special focus on creating communal areas to gather, relax and play, as well as the use of public art to encourage conversations and Instagram-worthy moments. At its opening, New Haven Marketplace will be at the doorstep of more than 8,500 new homes and apartments programmed and developed by Brookfield Residential, along with other homebuilders.
“We are very happy partnering with Frontier to bring New Haven’s home buyers what they want in a lifestyle center,” said Dave Bartlett, VP Land, Brookfield Residential. “This new destination amplifies the many attractive amenities in New Haven’s neighborhoods by creating a place that goes beyond shopping and dining to become part of the community experience.”
