More development coming to north Claremont
Taylor Morrison, the developer currently building townhomes at Base Line Road and Padua Avenue, recently purchased properties at 560 and 618 Base Line on the south side of the street between Mountain Avenue and Indian Hill Boulevard. These properties consist of just over four acres including four historic structures and are surrounded by single-family homes to the north, the 210 freeway to the south, commercial properties and the former Montessori school. The council recently approved minor changes to the plan, but overall the project moves forward as previously approved in 2007 when Tres Estrellas, LLC owned the property. The proposed development includes both commercial components as well as a 64-unit townhome complex. The historic buildings at the site will be preserved with two slated for office space and two barns becoming a community center and a small picnic area.
