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. We would like to make the construction process as easy on the surrounding neighbors as we can.We expect to update this web site periodically, at critical milestones.

As of April 25, 2019:
Wood framing will be complete in July 2019. Sheet rock and stucco are underway now, through late 2019. This can be a somewhat noisy process. Tar is currently being applied to the roofs. Each section of roof requires six layers of tar. People near the site may notice an odor. Tar application is expected to be complete in August. As the exterior building work winds up, attention will turn to the interior of the building and landscaping. Landscaping will begin in Fall 2019. Screening trees will be added along the west property line for the first building (closer to Williams) in late 2019, with the second building following about 6 months later.
In addition to work happening on-site, there are off-site construction activities. This will be updated if schedules should shift.
Winchester and Williams Intersection Improvement Project
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.
