Welcome to the Reserve Redevelopment Construction Update web site. The apartment complex formerly known as “The Reserve” located at 897 S. Winchester Boulevard, has been approved for development of 636 new apartment homes, with 8,000 square feet of retail and a plaza along Winchester.

As of October 14, 2019:
Project Construction Update
We are on the home stretch! For the building closest to Williams Road, wood framing is 100% complete, exterior stucco and siding is expected to be completed by the end of year 2019 or sooner. Interior work is in progress with building completion at the end of the first quarter of 2020. With completion of exterior work on the first building, there will be fewer workers coming to the site.
For the second building, framing is nearly done, and the exterior treatments will be completed toward the end of the first quarter of 2020. Roofing is 50% completed and progressing well. The roof requires six layers of tar, therefore people near the site may notice an odor temporarily.
As the exterior building work winds up, attention is turning toward the interior of the buildings and landscaping. Screening trees will be planted along the west property line for the first building (closest to Williams Road) Starting the second week of October, 2019 with the second building following in early 2020.
The retail space on Winchester Boulevard is nearing completion. Once the leases are secured by others, there will be time needed for tenant improvements before retail establishments can open.
Leasing and occupancy of the first apartment homes will start in the first quarter of 2020.
In addition to work happening on-site, there are off-site construction activities. The existing sidewalk on Winchester is being demolished and re-done starting in October. It is expected that this will be be completed by the end of 2019 or sooner. Paving of the Emergency Vehicle Access roadway along the rear of the property will be done around late November, 2019. All Construction activities and timing are weather dependent.
Winchester and Williams Intersection Improvements
What is it? Reconstructing the intersection to improve both vehicle and pedestrian travel and safety as well as general aesthetic improvements. The west side of the intersection will be re-aligned and a new median constructed, the unsafe “porkchop” islands will be removed and up-to-date pedestrian safety features will be added, and new traffic signals will be installed
Why? In addition to completing the necessary traffic mitigation requirements of the Environmental Impact Report (EIR) for The Reserve, further improvements are being made based on public input during the review process for the Reserve redevelopment.
When? Starting in May 2019 for at least 6 months. Construction hours are 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. Monday through Friday.
Impacts: Lane closures only. NO street closures.
