Alegre Apartments – Orange County’s newest integrated supportive housing project – will provide 104 apartment homes in the Cyprus Village subdivision in the City of Irvine. All of the apartments will be affordable to households earning between 30% and 50% of the Orange County Area Median Income. The developer, AMCAL, is partnering with Lifesteps, Families Forward and the County of Orange to provide complementary social services for children, adults and special needs residents. Alegre has been designed as a LEED Gold building with the associated cost efficiency, energy savings and sustainability features. Some of the project amenities include: elevator access, spacious floorplans, swimming pool with a kid’s water splash feature, barbeque and playground area, computer lab, media room, game room, and a fitness center.
Alegre Apartments also recently won the Kennedy Commission Project of the Year Award for its commitment to quality housing for those in our community with the most need. CSH has been assisting the County of Orange in the development of housing projects serving low and extremely low income tenants who suffer from mental illness and who are homeless or at risk of homelessness. This newest project, Alegre Apartments is currently completing its initial lease up.
