PASADENA, Calif.—Pasadena City Councilmember Victor Gordo will help host the Grand Opening Ceremonies for the new Washington Park Classics housing development, 671 E. Washington Blvd., beginning at 5 p.m., Thursday, June 28. Pasadena residents, business owners and all other stakeholders are invited to attend the festivities.

The eight-unit, single-family townhome project was developed by Trademark Development Company stemming from a collaborative effort between the City, the developer and the surrounding community, Councilmember Gordo said.

“The Washington Park Classics shows how the City and our residents can work together for positive change in Pasadena by transforming a nuisance liquor store site into an affordable, quality housing development that enhances the neighborhood’s quality of life,” Gordo said.

The Classics are at the northeast corner of Washington Boulevard and El Molino Avenue in Pasadena. The project was developed in partnership with the City’s Housing Department utilizing Inclusionary funds to help acquire the site and close the problem store.

Neighbors were encouraged to participate in the planning and design process for the new townhomes, according to Housing Department Director William Huang. The design is craftsman-inspired which is consistent with the architectural resources of the surrounding neighborhood.

The townhomes are a mix of two and three bedroom units ranging in size from 1,300 square feet to 1,600 square feet. At least four of the homes will be marketed and sold as affordable housing for low- and moderate-income first-time homebuyers. The remaining homes will be sold at prevailing market rate prices.
