Citrea provides 54 apartments for low-income families in historic Downtown Fullerton.
The City of Fullerton, Related California, and Foundation for Affordable Housing will open Citrea, an affordable transit-oriented development with 54 apartments for low-income families, and one manager’s unit, located on a one-acre site in historic downtown Fullerton.
Citrea is the first affordable community to be developed in the new Fullerton Transportation Center Specific Plan and located in close proximity to schools, a community center, the Fullerton Public Library, a public park, and within walking distance of the Fullerton Train Station and a regional bus transportation hub. Social services are provided by LifeSteps and include adult educational courses such as financial literacy, health and wellness, skill-building, and computer training classes.
Citrea is located on the site of the former Pacific Citrus Products bottling plant which manufactured the company’s most famous product, Hawaiian Punch, in the mid-20th century. That history is represented in a new mural on the site designed by local artist Mike Tauber and facing thousands of Metrolink and Amtrak passengers each day.
