SWENSON receives entitlements for 276-unit mixed-use development

Project will offer public Amphitheater seating and a restaurant overlooking the river
SANTA CRUZ, Calif. - May 31, 2023 - PRLog -- SWENSON, a leading Northern California real estate development company, announced the Santa Cruz City Council approved its application for entitlements on a mixed-use development at 530 Front Street in Santa Cruz. Located on the corner of Front Street and Soquel Avenue, the gateway to downtown Santa Cruz and Santa Cruz Riverwalk along the levee, development in this area is on the precipice of transforming downtown Santa Cruz through vibrant community spaces for living, recreation, tourism, and nightlife.

This 8-story, 276-unit development will be a mix of studio, one-bedroom, and two-bedroom units—including 37 below market rate units—with over close to 7,000 square feet of ground floor commercial space that will include both retail and a public restaurant overlooking the river. Along with featured amenities including a fitness center, storage units with bike storage, a dog washing station, a game room/lounge/kitchen, and a rooftop deck and two private courtyards, the development will also offer public Amphitheater seating and access to the highly anticipated, new Santa Cruz Riverwalk.

"For two decades, SWENSON has listened to the needs of the community, understanding the urgent demand for affordable housing and the profound impact it has on individuals and families," said SWENSON President Case Swenson. "We have worked hand-in-hand with local leaders, local organizations, and residents to craft a development that meets the unique needs of this vibrant neighborhood. I am thrilled this project will finally come to fruition."

Expected to add a significant supply of housing to combat the ongoing housing crisis in Santa Cruz, this project is estimated to be completed in summer of 2026.
