Designed with local community input, Chino Francis Estates offers ideal single level living for families and empty-nesters. With manageable lot sizes, most with room to store an RV, 100% single-story architecture and entertaining-sized backyards, the beautiful ranch style architecture embraces the traditional family heritage of Chino, while incorporating state-of-the-art green technology standards. In addition to new housing options, Chino Francis Estates will provide high-quality community amenities, create local jobs and generate millions of dollars in new revenue flowing into the city.
Chino Francis Estates will build 39 single-story, ranch-style homes across approximately 13 acres just north of Francis Avenue between Yorba and Ramona avenues adjacent to the City of Chino. The project will offer a variety of floor plans to meet diverse community needs, with homes ranging from 2,800 to 3,600 square feet.
Chino Francis Estates is a fiscally sustainable community generating a positive net impact on the City. The proposed project will create many local jobs and generate millions of dollars in new revenue flowing into the City, including an estimated $1.9 million in annual recurring retail sales in Chino and surrounding communities. To accommodate for additional residents, Chino Francis Estates will contribute more than $2.4 million in development fees to the City, local agencies and Chino schools.
Each home in the new community will be designed using state-of-the-art green technology and building standards, including energy-efficient appliances, water conserving fixtures, and high-efficiency HVAC sytems and water heaters. All homes will come with solar systems installed and be built to the most current CALGreen standards with recycled materials, and will use more than 28 percent less energy for lighting, heating, cooling and ventilating than older homes. In addition, all front yard landscaping will be drought-tolerant and water smart.
The new community will include beautiful ranch-style homes designed with historical-style architecture to embrace the traditional heritage of Chino. The number of homes has been reduced to 39 lots, limiting the number of homes to fit in with the agrarian character of the area.
The project will transform the area by revitalizing a vacant and blighted property, and widening Yorba and Francis avenues to allow for new street lights, curbs, sidewalks, and landscaped parkways — bringing new life, beauty, and pride of ownership to the neighborhood. The project will also build a brand new community park at the corner of Francis and Yorba avenues with recreational amenities, including a picnic area, playground, BBQ and fire pits, and a Bocce Ball court.
