MODERNIZATION of a affordable housing complex was approved by the Garden Grove City Council Tuesday night (Shutterstock).

A complex of modernized and upgraded affordable housing is on the way as the Garden Grove City Council took action in support of that project.

With Mayor Steve Jones absent, the council approved a preliminary award letter to New Tamerlane LLC to implement the substantial rehabilitation and “reset” of the project on Tamerlane Lane west of Harbor Boulevard and between Lampson and Chapman Avenues.

Garden Grove had been assisting the original Tamerlane Associates in assembling 15 multi-family properties. In 2022 that organization sold the properties to New Tamerlane, and in order to modernize them, the new owner is seeking tax credit and a loan which would amount to $12.5 million for a term of 58 years.

New Tamerlane will be responsible for renovation, interiors and exteriors of all 15 buildings and 78 units. Work would include new paint, fixtures, flooring, etc.

According to a staff report, the new operators intend to add new amenities such as a playground, art, an office for on-site management and a community center to help provide services to tenants.

Also the council approved resolution of commendation to Rep. Lou Correa for his years of representing Garden Grove  in the state legislature and in Congress. He is still serving in the House of Representatives, but after re-districting his constituency no longer includes the city.
