Housing development near CSU Channel Islands to see first residents

The first residents of a nearly 600-unit housing project near CSU’s Channel Islands are on track to move in later this year.

The project, called Anacapa Canyon, will provide 310 market-rate apartments, 109 townhomes and single-family homes and 170 affordable apartments for seniors in the University Glen neighborhood. The community is adjacent to the South Camarillo Campus.

The project started in February 2022.

First homes and townhomes will close escrow in November and December, said Nick Bridges, managing director with developer Kennedy Wilson.

Eight townhomes and nine single-family homes have been completed and most have been sold. The remaining units will be put on the market in stages to meet demand. Prices for townhomes start at $600,000, while prices for single-family homes start at $700,000.

Seniors ages 55 and older will begin moving into affordable apartments in February. The one and two-bedroom apartments are located in one horseshoe-shaped building.

The number of seniors on the waiting list for apartments is nearly double the available units, Bridges said.

“It is a testament to the demand and need for affordable housing in Ventura County,” he said.

The units will be available to seniors who earn 30-60% of the area median income. The median income for a family of four in Ventura County is $123,500, according to state data. For affordable apartments, visit Vintageatanacapa.com.

The initial market-rate housing units will begin welcoming residents in February. Bridges said the final buildings will be filled in the summer of 2025. Luxury and market-rate apartment prices were not available Friday.

On Thursday afternoon, construction crews moved through the 32-acre property among nearly completed buildings designed in the classic Spanish style.

Various amenities also began to take shape.

The furniture was moved to a clubhouse in the center of the project. The clubhouse will feature spacious communal gathering areas, a pool, fitness center, two spas, and a fire pit.

Walking paths, gardens and playgrounds are also spread throughout the project, which is located northeast of the university.
