Major Development Projects

Recently Approved Projects

Della Rosa Housing Development

Approved by the City Council in May 2017, the Della Rosa project was recently awarded much-needed state tax credit funding and can now proceed with development. The project consists of 50 affordable housing units, and is being built by Affirmed Housing, in partnership with the Westminster Housing Authority and County of Orange, to help meet the need for decent, safe housing for all. The project will demolish a vacant and obsolete retail building (expected to begin in April 2019), replacing it with an attractive development that will improve the City's image along heavily-traveled Beach Boulevard.

Bolsa Row 

Approved in June 2018, the Bolsa Row project will bring a dynamic, mixed use complex to Little Saigon. Comprised of approximately 200 apartments, a hotel, a banquet facility, and about 45,000 square feet of retail, Bolsa Row will elevate Little Saigon to a place you can shop, entertain, and stay.

Upcoming Projects

Westminster Crossing

The Westminster Crossing developer, Meta Housing, proposes to develop 65 apartment units affordable to low income individuals and families. Located at the corner of Westminster Blvd and Locust St, the project is in the heart of the General Plan's "Downtown" mixed use area. The proposed project will help further the intent of the designation by incorporating mixed use design elements. The project is being undertaken in partnership with the Westminster Housing Authority, and will seek further funding sources over the course of 2019. A Planning Commission public hearing is tentatively scheduled for January 23, 2019.

Westminster Mall Specific Plan

The City’s recently adopted General plan identified the Westminster Mall as a special opportunity site and required a Specific Plan (new zoning) be developed for the entire area. The Specific Plan, with assistance from property owners at the Mall, will create a pathway for a thriving, mixed-use activity center in one of the City’s most visible areas. 

Over the coming months, the City will be meeting with property owners, decision-makers, and the community to develop a comprehensive vision and customized zoning standards for the Westminster Mall. Staff will be conducting in-person and online outreach to ask for public input and feedback. Results will be shared with the Planning Commission and City Council.
