17-Unit Condo Project Could Head to Los Al

The Los Alamitos City Council will hold a public hearing on the project, which could turn a 1.53-acre industrial plot on Sausalito Way into a housing development.

Seventeen new homes could be heading to Los Alamitos depending on what happens at a public hearing Monday night.

The City Council is scheduled to decide whether to allow California-based home builder Olson Co. to create a 1.53-acre housing project near the intersection of Sausalito and Oak streets.

Called Sausalito Walk, the project would create 17 detached, single-family condominium units at 3271 Sausalito St.

The Los Alamitos Planning Commission recommended the item to the City Council at the commission’s Oct. 29 meeting.

The site currently houses a business called Harbor Patterns in a building about 10,000 square feet, as well as a number of other structures, according to Steven Mendoza, Los Alamitos community development director and public works director.

Under the Olson Co.'s plan, the buildings would be demolished, and the land would be rezoned as residential; it’s currently industrial. 

If approved, Mendoza said, the project may break ground sometime in spring. 

Mendoza said representatives of the nearby Royal Oaks Mobile Home Park said that they supported the plan.

According to Mendoza, the last residential development in los Alamitos was a four-unit apartment complex on Oak last year.

The public hearing is scheduled for 6 p.m. Monday evening at City Hall, 3191 Katella Ave.

Questions or comments can be directed to the Community Development Department, (562) 431-3538, Ext. 300.
