More Spectrum Housing Considered

Two of the last undeveloped land parcels in the immediate vicinity of the Irvine Spectrum Center could see another 1,100 residential units built, according to Irvine city filings.

The Irvine Co. has proposed a General Plan Amendment to increase the number of residential entitlements in the area from 4,356 to 5,456 units.

City filings indicate that the developments would go up on a pair of parcels Irvine Co. owns, next to the DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel in the city, and near the intersection of Pacifica and Gateway.

Offices were previously considered for the sites, sources tell the Business Journal.

The developer has built several other mid-rise apartment projects in the immediate vicinity over the past decade.

The GPA faces a similar review process as the one planned for Irvine Co.’s housing proposal in at the Irvine Market Place and likely wouldn’t face city review until mid-2023, according to city filings.

As in the case of the Market Place proposal, Irvine Co. states that the Spectrum project would help the city boost its base of workforce housing.
