Award-winning KTGY Group, Inc., Architecture + Planning, is pleased to announce that Olson Homes, the leading developer of in-town urban living, is debuting two model homes in its newest residential community, Citrus Walk. Located in the heart of downtown Covina, Calif., and within walking distance to shops, restaurants, and MetroLink, Citrus Walk will offer LEED Certified homes that are innovatively designed to fit active, urban lifestyles and attract first-time homebuyers. KTGY is the project's designer of this new mixed-use community.
Citrus Walk is Olson Homes fifth new urban living residential development in the Covina area. The Citrus Walk community will offer 37 townhomes and 8,000 square feet of new retail space along downtown Covina’s Citrus Avenue, with 12 flats over the new retail storefronts. The townhomes, each with approximately 1,580 square feet and three stories, will have 2-3 bedrooms, 2 baths and 1-2 powder rooms, and 2-car garages.
The homes, built to exceed LEED green living standards, feature energy-efficient amenities including Energy Star appliances; water-efficient and lead-free faucets; highly water-efficient toilets; auto shut-off motion sensors in all baths, space saving tank-less water heaters, and built-in recycle bins, among many other features.
“The Citrus Walk community represents the culmination of years of work with the City of Covina to create a new brand of ‘walkable’ community within Covina’s downtown, offering the best of an in-town lifestyle,” said Steve Olson, Chairman/CEO of The Olson Company. “Located close to shops, restaurants, and MetroLink’s new San Bernardino Express line, Citrus Walk embraces and caters to active lifestyles.”
According to KTGY's Alan Scales, studio director and lead designer of Citrus Walk,“The new Citrus Walk community features contemporary styling, innovative architecture, the latest in ‘green’ home design and will integrate a new and refreshing urban lifestyle element to Covina’s downtown." The stylish townhomes are priced from the mid $300,000s.
"Citrus Walk is efficiently built to provide first-time buyers an opportunity to own a new beautiful, well-appointed home. The sustainable, eco-friendly design and close proximity to jobs, services and education further increase affordability," added Scales.
"Olson Homes is beating the market in launching new home communities and is one of a few homebuilders in the marketplace that is actively selling out of each new community they build," Scales said. "The niche of building affordable housing in desirable in town locations has been a proven winning formula for this affordable new home builder. Olson Homes anticipates that pent up demand for affordable new housing in the city of Covina will make Citrus Walk highly desirable for its central Downtown Covina location."
The Citrus Walk sales center is located at 137 E. Italia Street, Covina, CA 91723. To learn more about Citrus Walk please visit CitrusWalk.com/.
