REDLANDS >> In the same vein as Victoria Gardens in Rancho Cucamonga and other mixed-use developments across Southern California, a 340-unit gated apartment complex, with a retail component, has been approved for development in an unincorporated area of this city.

On Tuesday, the San Bernardino County Board of Supervisors unanimously approved The Crossings at Redlands, planned for the northeast corner of Lugonia Avenue and Nevada Street, next to a 306-unit apartment complex, Circa 2020, now under construction by the same developer, Redlands-based UCR Group.

The gated complex, tailored for the upwardly mobile professional, is expected to break ground in October and be completed in 2017. It will include a sidewalk cafe and produce market on the ground floor, a state-of-the-art fitness center, a lounge, and even a demonstration kitchen.

“We find that young professionals spend a lot of time learning at college, but not a lot of time learning how to cook, and this has become a very popular component in our multi-family projects,” project architect Gary Miller said during his presentation to county supervisors on Tuesday,

Supervisor Josie Gonzales was impressed with the project, and said she has been very pleased with all the development in the unincorporated pocket of Redlands known as the Donut Hole, west of the 10-210 Freeway interchange, including the Mountain Grove retail center adjacent Citrus Plaza.

“This project attracts a beautiful type of image and marketing opportunity that I believe we have not had in the past,” Gonzales said.
