SAN DIEGO — Santa Clarita’s recent growth continues to surge, according to JPI, a leader in the development of Class A multifamily housing.

To meet the impending shortage of luxury apartment homes, JPI is investing in its third property in the Santa Clarita Valley: Jefferson Vista Canyon.

Part of a walkable master-planned community by JSB Development, the 430,524-square-foot multifamily project will cater to the strong local demographics by providing top-of-the-line amenities and services.

Situated on 185 acres just 35 miles from downtown Los Angeles, on the eastern end of Canyon Country off Lost Canyon Road, Santa Clarita’s Vista Canyon is a mixed-use, transit-oriented community. It will include retail, office, hospitality, park and recreational areas, apartments and single-family residences, along with a new intermodal transit station, which includes the Metrolink commuter rail at its center.

“We’ve done a tremendous amount of due diligence here, and with two other JPI communities in Santa Clarita, Jefferson at Town Center and Jefferson at South River, the addition of Jefferson Vista Canyon reflects our confidence that the market will continue to perform well,” said Todd Bowden, senior vice president and managing development partner/JPI Western Region. “JSB’s vision in developing the Vista Canyon master plan fits perfectly with JPI’s core business objectives.”

JPI’s Jefferson Vista Canyon community will provide 480 homes, including studio and one-, two- and three-bedroom layouts. The unique amenities will complement the sophistication of the city and incorporate features that are conducive to a live-work-play environment centered near key transit hubs.

Key amenities include:

* Access to Vista Canyon’s seven-mile system of bike, pedestrian and equestrian paths;

* Two resort-style pools, with spas and cabanas containing large-screen TVs;

* Two state-of-the-art fitness centers that incorporate multiuse studios for yoga and spin classes;

* A clubhouse with double-height ceilings and a vaulted skylight system, two-way fireplace and an entertainment kitchen;

* “Speakeasy” lounge featuring high-top bars with a kegerator, wine refrigerator, multiple flat-screen TVs, a pool table, shuffleboard and a multisport simulator
Rooftop deck with a barbecue area and fire pit;

* Dog park and dog washing station.

Part of a walkable master-planned community, Jefferson Vista Canyon will cater to the strong local demographics by providing top-of-the-line amenities and services.

“JPI brings a respected reputation for outstanding luxury apartment communities that deliver exceptional living experiences to residents,” said James S. Backer, president of JSB Development. “We believe they are a great partner for Vista Canyon’s first residential community and will set a very high standard for continued excellence throughout the Vista Canyon community as it comes to life.”

Designed by Architects Orange, based in Orange, California, Jefferson Vista Canyon is set to be complete by spring 2020.
