With grading and infrastructure development in the first phase of Millenia well underway, McMillin Communities plans to start construction soon on three urban-style attached neighborhoods with grand openings slated for the end of the year.
More than 200 townhomes and two- and three-story triplexes are planned at Metro, Evo and Trio. Designed by Woodley Architecture, the nine floorplans are elegant, open and well-organized. Stylish innovations include penthouses with private elevators, multigenerational living options, dual master suites, home automation, photovoltaic solar systems and indoor/outdoor living with balconies, patios and rear yards. The common areas will feature outdoor dining areas, intimate gathering spaces, playgrounds, a resort-style pool area and appealing tree-sheltered paseos.
Fairfield Residential, Millenia’s first apartment developer, expects to break ground in June on 273 apartment homes, scheduled to open approximately one year later. The three-story buildings will feature classic urban architecture, street entrances and a metropolitan vibe. The apartments are adjacent to one of the six generously appointed parks that provide outdoor adventures, relaxation and gathering places.
In addition to these residential neighborhoods, McMillin is engaged in negotiations on a midrise hotel to anchor the 13-acre retail site that is being developed by Sudberry Properties. Groundbreaking is expected soon.
The 203-acre Millenia, which is the equivalent of 80 city blocks, is the urban center of the 23,000-acre Otay Ranch masterplan. The community is fully entitled with plans for 3,000 multifamily residences, 2 million square feet of Class A office space on 30 acres, 1.5 million square feet of retail, hospitality, civic and mixed-use projects, six urban parks and a variety of promenades, bikeways and plazas. Population will be approximately 8,500 when complete in about 20 years. It has been designated a Smart Growth Urban Center by the San Diego Association of Governments.
Sustainability is an integral part of Millenia, which has ambitious plans for water conservation, air quality and energy conservation. In partnership with San Diego Gas & Electric, Millenia has been designated a “Smart Grid” community and will incorporate the latest energy-efficient technologies.
