Lake Elsinore Breaks Ground On Low-Income Apartments Project

Located on 4.4 acres at Pottery Street and Langstaff Avenue, the $24 million development project will feature 113 new affordable family rental apartments.

On Tuesday, the City of Lake Elsinore broke ground on the new Pottery Court apartment complex that will target families in the $13,650 to $32,500 income bracket.

Located on 4.4 acres at Pottery Street and Langstaff Avenue, just two blocks from the Lake Elsinore’s historic downtown, the $24 million development project will feature 113 new affordable family rental apartments.

The apartments will be offered to families with annual incomes ranging from approximately $13,650 for a single person household to $32,500 for a four-person household. Monthly rents are expected to range from approximately $316 to $761, depending on income and apartment size.

There will be 20 one-bedroom apartments, 48 two-bedrooms, and 45 three-bedrooms.

The developer on the project is BRIDGE Housing Corporation, a non-profit developer of affordable housing.

According to Lyn Hikida, director of communications for BRIDGE, amenities at Pottery Court will include a community building with a study room, a great room, a full kitchen, a pool, BBQs and outdoor play areas.

Redevelopment money is being used to fund the project, which is scheduled to open next spring.

The project was approved by the city in June 2008.

WOW that's the fastest I have ever seen this City move on any project. To bad they can't give the torn up jacked up roads in this town the same kind of expedited attention.

....just 2 blocks from the historic downtown area??? Bet the merchants that are trying to revitalize the area are lovin' that!!

Lovely!!! That'll make the price of our homes drop even lower. Just what we need, more "low income" aka - trash in Lake Elsinore, thought we where trying to get rid of the trash and now this! GREAT!!!

I think this is a great idea. I don't think the location is the best place though. When my husband and I were first married we couldn't afford much and we lived in the "subsidized- low income" apartments off Railroad Canyon close to the Chevy and Ford dealerships. It really helped a new couple to only pay $500 dollars in rent for our first two years of marriage!

I didn't know we had so much bigotry here in Lake Elsinore! Frieda

Get used to it Frieda, These elitist RACIST snobs move out here and believe they are the cream of the crop. Why do they live here? Hopefully crime prevention is planned into the project which would benefit the area in the long run along with lower density. These folks would hopefully buy homes in the area once they save and the cycle of wealth instead ofthe cycle of poverty will take place.

i agree, i think ive almost taken my axle of because of those potholes.
a April 04, 2012 at 11:11 PM
just wondering, what's wrong with the location?
a April 04, 2012 at 11:14 PM
i agree i live in the neighborhood, and i don't want them here and neither does any of our neighbors. we already have to do so much just to keep it clean around here it's not easy, and it's very hard to get the city or the police to do anything.

do you smoke pot, do any kind of drugs, or have roudy kids that you let run around in the complex and make everyone else watch while your in your appartment. just wondering? if not than give yourself a pat on the back your in the one percent bracket.
a April 04, 2012 at 11:18 PM
i agree with this guy. lol i just wondering how many yrs those people who left those comments, have lived here.?
Diana April 04, 2012 at 11:18 PM
Our town has low income and very low income apartments on the following streets: Lincoln, Joy, Grand, Parkview, Woodcrest, Broadway, Lindsay, Riverside, Graham, Kellogg, Limited, Pope, Spring, Peck, Heald, Ellis,Lakeshore, and Casino, just to name a few, do we really need more apartment complexes..............NOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
a April 04, 2012 at 11:21 PM
and i think a lot of people also forget about those who live in these area's and we also are trying to keep the trash out, it's all these damn apartment complexes. f.y.i the city don't even want to deal with the problems that come from them. why didn't they put this eyesore next to their home instead of mine.
Hillary April 05, 2012 at 04:50 AM
A~ I don't do drugs or have crazy kids. I understand the meaning behind your comments. I wouldn't want to live by people who aren't good neighbors. But I don't think it's 1% of people who do the right thing. I think it's the opposite, most want, or do good and the other 1% of the population ruin it for everyone else. Just wondering if this article was re-written...because this was from a year ago. Also, are they done with the project? Or even began?
