Lake Elsinore's New Low-Income Apartments Ready For Residents

Monthly rents for the one-, two- and three-bedroom apartments range from $559 to $677, depending on income and apartment size.

Lake Elsinore’s newest apartment complex for low-income residents has units available for lease and for a limited time is offering a “first month free rent” special, it was announced this week.

Residents are currently moving into three of the eight residential buildings known as Pottery Court located on 4.4 acres at Pottery Street and Langstaff Avenue, and the balance of apartments will be ready for leasing between now and July, according to Lyn Hikida of BRIDGE Housing Corporation, the company that developed and manages the new low-income residential community.

When complete, Pottery Court will feature 113 units. There will be 20 one-bedroom apartments, 48 two-bedrooms, and 45 three-bedrooms. Redevelopment money was used to fund the $24 million project, which was approved by the city in June 2008.

The complex is being touted for its close proximity to Lake Elsinore’s historic downtown, schools, restaurants and parks. The Pottery Court units feature semi-private patios and decks as well as garage parking. The kitchen of each apartment is equipped with new energy-efficient appliances, including a refrigerator, gas stove and dishwasher. Among the amenities are a club room, outdoor BBQ area, two play areas for children and on-site laundry facilities.

Pottery Court apartments are targeting families with annual incomes of up to $33,500 for a household of four. Monthly rents for the one-, two- and three-bedroom apartments range from $559 to $677, depending on income and apartment size. Income and other restrictions apply. Proof of income and U.S. citizenship are required as part of the application process.

“I really like living here,” said new Pottery Court resident Janelle Battaglia, who works in retail as an apparel sales associate. “When I first saw the apartment, I almost screamed—it was so much nicer than I expected. Everything is very beautiful, and I love how it came with a refrigerator.”

Prospective applicants are invited to visit the Pottery Court leasing office at 295 W. Sumner Avenue, Lake Elsinore; hours are Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. For more information, call 951.245.5566 or download an application at www.bridgehousing.com/Pottery-Court.

You people should be ashamed of your selves.... If you are looking for an APARTMENT you are no better than the next person. I live in a 5 bedroom house in the hills of LE. I come from ghetto living now needing to find affordable living for my family. Just because people offer low income do not mean the nieghborhood is going to hell. Check yourselves, that kind of attitude will send you there not the people. God Bless

I dont understand why people are so quick to pass judgement upon others without taking a glimpse at their reflection in that one sided glass they look through...just saying. I guess we all have are faults, God can only help us.
