On Tuesday, the City of Garden Grove and new home builder Shea Homes celebrated the successful completion of their latest housing community, Gardenia by Shea Homes, located at 12910 Dahlia Street, near Lewis Street and Garden Grove Boulevard.  While the development was officially completed last month, all of Gardenia’s 70 single-family homes have been sold out since last December, making it one of the most successful new housing projects to date for Shea Homes and the Garden Grove.

“Seeing how quickly these homes sold, it’s obvious that more people are choosing Garden Grove to buy a new home and that we’re meeting the important must-haves buyers are looking for in a home and a community. My deepest thanks and congratulations to Shea Homes on this very successful and beautiful residential development in our city,” said Garden Grove Mayor Steve Jones.

“We are so proud to have partnered with the City of Garden Grove at Gardenia. Made evident by the success of this development is that we have designed and delivered a product that meets the needs of the residents of this community, and as a homebuilder, that is a really great feeling,” said Shea Homes Vice President of Sales & Marketing Karen Ellerman.

The nine-acre site, situated near the Christ Cathedral/Diocese of Orange, and owned by the Christ Catholic Cathedral Facilities, Corp., was the former site of St. Callistus Church, later Shepherd’s Grove church. In 2017, Shea Homes began working with the city for the development of the property into a housing community.  Despite widespread construction slow-downs in early 2020 as a result of the coronavirus pandemic, work on the project moved forward until its official completion in October.
