The Olson Company and the City of Montebello have cut the ribbon on BLVD Walk in Montebello, California, marking one of the first highly anticipated revitalization projects in the downtown area.

BLVD Walk is a critical component of the city's revitalization initiatives along the Whittier Blvd corridor. When completed, the community will be comprised of 28 new townhomes with modern and inviting Irving Gill-inspired architecture ranging in size from 1,309 to 1,693 square feet and from two to three bedrooms. With models open and sales underway, the project's impressive price point from the $400,000s has been and will continue to be a major selling point of the community, as it attracts local and LA-area buyers and increases the opportunity for homeownership across life stages and professions.

BLVD Walk addresses the growing trend of home buyers desiring to move away from the suburbs or stay in the city and purchase a home close to work and play. The Olson Company is a recognized leader in the development of high-quality mixed-use infill projects throughout Southern California. The company has a long and impressive history of city partnerships, including with the City of Montebello, to increase community redevelopment and bring critically needed housing to urban areas that's well designed, attainably priced, close to mass transit and employment centers, and within walking distance of quality dining, retail, and entertainment like downtown Montebello.

"We've been creating this type of community for 30 years in the state of California, and we consider ourselves the leader of urban infill development that focuses on downtown living close to transit at affordable price points," said Bill Holford, president of Olson Communities.

BLVD Walk employs open-concept floor plans featuring inviting living areas, sizable kitchens with center islands, master suites with walk-in closets, private decks, and attached two-car garages. Downtown Montebello, a walkable and up-and-coming neighborhood, is literally outside their front door, and the thriving dining and entertainment scene of downtown Los Angeles is only eight miles away. The community's central location near the 5, 60, 605, and 710 freeways means easier access to Downtown LA, surrounding cities, the San Gabriel Valley, and North Orange County, and is less than two miles from the Montebello/Commerce Metrolink Station.
