Miraflores is a 14-acre redevelopment project intended to remove blighted conditions and promote smart growth in the Park Plaza neighborhood of Richmond, CA. The development will primarily serve very low and low income seniors and moderate income first time homebuyers with 80 new affordable rental units for seniors and 150 market-rate family housing units. Miraflores will be a LEED for Neighborhood Development certified community offering walkability, recreation space, and nearby transit options - all within a four acre greenbelt. The project will incorporate design features and historic building elements reflecting the site's history operating three flower nurseries as part of the Japanese-American flower-growing industry in Richmond. CCLR assisted the community and the City with re-structuring of the project's finances to provide for the cleanup of environmental concerns on the site. The project broke ground in 2011.
"CCLR's early and often support for the Miraflores project was invaluable to the success of this important cultural and residential revitalization project."
