Stanton: Motel Sites Tapped for Housing Projects

Jamboree Housing has pulled permits to redevelop two Stanton motels into a 132-unit permanent housing complex.

The properties—the 60-room Tahiti Motel and the 72-room Stanton Inn and Suites—have been operating as temporary housing venues for homeless individuals as part of Project Roomkey, a statewide homeless relief program launched a month after the onset of the pandemic.

Now, those two properties will be converted into long-term housing as part of Project Homekey, a California initiative that targets hotels, motels and vacant apartment buildings to create up to 14,000 permanent housing units for homeless or at-risk individuals.

Jamboree Housing—an Irvine-based nonprofit housing developer that specializes in motel conversions—and the county were awarded $23.1 million as part of the first round of funding for the program to redevelop the two Stanton motels, built in 1960 and 1989, respectively.

The next phase of the project includes the exterior renovations, site improvements and outstanding renovations to “to fully transform them into permanent housing,” according to an update from the city of Stanton.
