Hines Purchases Land in Pasadena, CA, for Multifamily Development

(LOS ANGELES) – Hines, the international real estate firm, today announced that it has closed on a 3.5-acre land parcel in Pasadena, CA, for the development of a new Class A for-rent multifamily residential complex.

Designed by Newman Garrison + Partners of Newport Beach, the development will include 212 residences in a four-story building above two parking levels.

Located on the corner of Foothill Boulevard and Sierra Madres Villa Road, the project will provide excellent vehicular and public transit access throughout Pasadena and the greater Los Angeles area.

The project is immediately adjacent to the Sierra Madre Villa light rail station, less than one block from the 210-freeway, and within walking distance to many restaurants, grocery stores, departments stores and convenience retail.

John Favreau, Hines managing director and leader of the firm’s West Region multifamily platform, said, “The Los Angeles office of Hines is excited to be developing a best-in-class, transit-oriented residential community in one of the strongest submarkets of Southern California.

We believe that the strength of the location and surrounding amenities position this development to take full advantage of the continued growth in the region.”

Alan Patton, senior managing director in charge of the firm’s Multifamily Division, said, “Hines has a legacy of delivering high-quality projects all over the world, and we expect that to continue with our multifamily product throughout California.

We are looking at all of the key markets.”
