Shea Properties breaks ground on new Alhambra Place

Shea Properties and Alhambra City Council held on Nov. 17 a ground breaking ceremony for the new Alhambra Place on Garfield Avenue and Main Street. The development includes restaurants, retail space, and 260 luxury apartments.

“We are so excited to be a part of this downtown Alhambra revitalization, and we know the end result will be a huge success,” said Shea Properties Vice President of Acquisitions and Development Andres Friedman in a Nov. 19 press release.

The plaza has been mostly vacant since Mervyn's closed in 2009. The new Alhambra Place will create an estimated 1,602 jobs in Alhambra, according to Friedman. About half of these jobs—788—will be temporary construction jobs during development, and 814 will be permanent on-site jobs after construction.

The new Alhambra Place will feature a "bright contemporary design" with wood, metal, and ambient lighting, according to the statement from Shea Properties.

Construction on the Shea Properties development will begin with the retail and dining space, scheduled to be completed in summer 2015. Construction of residential units along Bay State Street will start in spring 2015. The first apartments are expected to be available in the fall of 2016.
