Presented By: KTGY

Parc Derian is an urban infill project currently under construction in the Irvine Business Complex (IBC), a mixed zoning area, with high-density residential, commercial and light industrial uses. It is an inclusionary housing project developed on behalf of Lennar Homes and is being constructed on an affordable housing site on Derian Avenue that was transferred from its original Central Park West location, an urban community also being developed by Lennar. This affordable family project is a collaboration between Lennar, the Irvine Community Land Trust (ICLT) (an independent nonprofit organization created by the City of Irvine to oversee affordable housing and to preserve it for future generations), City of Irvines Planning and Housing staff, C&C Development, Innovative Housing Opportunities (IHO), Advent Construction, and KTGY Architecture + Planning.

Parc Derian is a four-story, podium-designed structure featuring contemporary architecture that incorporates urban inspired elements and finishes and is designed to achieve a LEED Gold certification and will also exceed Title 24 standards by at least 10%. Being developed on a 2.2- acre urban infill site, the 80-apartment project features almost a half-acre of open space and residents will be served by 5,000 square feet of community space with such amenities as a fitness room, community room, on-site laundry facilities, and secured bicycle storage.
