Hines Opens California Community to Residents
Construction at the mixed-use luxury community was completed late last year.
Hines is welcoming the first residents to its 228-unit luxury community, The Grant, in Concord, Calif. The firm began construction on recently-completed property in spring 2020, finishing in late 2022.
The developer tapped Brown Construction as the project’s general contractor, Architects Orange as the architect and Haven Design Studio as the interior designer. Hines also tapped Willowick Residential to manage the community.
The property design features two buildings separated by Clayton Road. The Grant’s north building has 139 units and ground-floor retail, while the south building has 89 units. The units are available in studio, one- and two-bedroom floorplans ranging from 506 to 1,211 square feet and were built with nine-foot ceilings, walk-in closets and washer and dryers in each unit.
Select units include kitchen islands, balconies and terraces and balcony utility closets. Amenities include a pool, clubroom, coworking space, pet spa, bike repair shop, fitness center and parking garage. The property also offers bike storage, automated package receiving and electric vehicle charging stations, as well as gas firepits and outdoor grills.
Located at 1776 Grant St., the community is a block away from the Concord BART train station and a short walk from many of Concord’s retail and restaurant options. According to Hines, residences are already 50 percent leased.
“We view Concord as a dynamic city with a vibrant downtown, a sound economic base and great transit connectivity,” Brian Chadwick, senior associate at Hines, told Multi-Housing News. “It is a forward-thinking city, focused on creative solutions to the Bay Area’s housing affordability challenges, and has been a great partner in the development of The Grant.”
Developing across the U.S.
The Grant is one of 200 Hines developments worldwide. Hines’ portfolio of completed communities includes Houston’s tallest residential tower, Brava, which opened to residents in August and completed in late 2022.
Hines is continuing to build out its fast-growing multifamily portfolio with projects across the U.S. In Milwaukee, the firm broke ground on a 333-unit luxury community while converting a former 24-story office in Salt Lake City into a 255-unit apartment community.
