Santa Fe replaces a rundown hotel in central Bakersfield with a vibrant mixed-use development.
Santa Fe, which is AMCAL’s first development in Kern County, consists of 3,150 sf of retail along Union Avenue and 56 units. Construction is three levels of Type V wood with surface parking of 87 spaces. Site area is 2.6 ac. (21 dua).
The Spanish/Mediterranean-inspired design complements the neighborhood.
Santa Fe is near a Golden Empire Transit District bus route, Lowell Park, McKinley Elementary School, Bakersfield Community Health Clinic, markets, and pharmacies.
Santa Fe was financed with a $7,130,780 allocation of 9% Low-income Housing Tax Credits in 2008, conventional debt and public funds from the City of Bakersfield RDA.
Construction began in 2010.
