Shopoff Realty Investments Secures City Council Approval for Huntington Beach Mixed-Use Development
Irvine, Calif. – January 21, 2021 – Shopoff Realty Investments (“Shopoff”), a national manager of opportunistic and value-add real estate investments, announced today that the company has secured approval from the Huntington Beach City Council for its Magnolia Tank Farm project.
The Huntington Beach City Council approved the Environmental Impact Report, Specific Plan, Zone Change and a Development Agreement for the visitor serving mixed use project, which will include approximately 250 single-family detached and attached homes, a 215-key boutique lodge with 40 of the rooms dedicated to affordable lodging, approximately 19,000 square feet of neighborhood retail, and public open space and trails throughout.
“Removing the former oil storage tanks on this property in 2017 was a big initial step for this property, moving it from a blight on the community into a useable and positive development,” explained Shopoff Realty Investments president and chief executive officer, William Shopoff. “Now with City approvals secured, we are thrilled to be able to move this project forward, providing much needed housing in this supply constrained market, as well as neighborhood focused retail and a boutique lodge that will differentiate itself from the other ocean adjacent hotel properties.”
Shopoff Realty Investments vice president, development, James O’Malley added, “This opportunity will enrich the City of Huntington Beach in many ways, at a time where unproductive land can be converted to provide many improvements and needed revenue.”
Shopoff purchased the land in 2016 and after removing the former oil tanks, the property was leased to AES as a construction staging area as the company renovated the adjacent power plant. During this time, Shopoff worked on the project entitlements and received project approval from the Huntington Beach City Planning Commission in November 2019.
