Long recognized as the heart and soul of the City of Redlands, the University of Redlands is creating this new 30-acre University Village to address the multi-generational housing needs of its campus community and the greater Redlands community as a whole. The development will be created adjacent to the campus, and more importantly, adjacent to the campus’s MetroLink/ Arrow Line rail station.
The University Village, located approximately 60 miles east of Downtown Los Angeles, will be a fully-integrated neighborhood where students, locals, visitors and innovators will live, work, and play. The ambitious, multi-phase project aspires to be a gathering place for cultural and intellectual exchange that celebrates Redlands’ rich heritage while it inspires its future.
University Village will offer an array of residential housing options at diverse price points; an exciting market-hall restaurant/retail concept; creative flex work spaces for entrepreneurs and small businesses; and Redlands’ first high-quality boutique hotel with a roof-top bar/restaurant with panoramic views of the San Bernardino Mountains - all within a five-minute walk. Surrounded by a village green and bordered by the historic Mill Creek Zanja tributary, University Village will also be designed and built with the highest level of sustainability best practices - from “cool-streets” to recycled grey water for landscape irrigation - with power supplied by renewable sources.
The team is also committed to a University priority to build a “car light” neighborhood that offers alternative transportation modes including rail transit, new modern bike lanes, and pedestrian friendly sidewalks.
University Village is scheduled to break ground in 2024.
