Bonterra consists of 94 garden-style apartment homes within the new Blackstone master-planned Community developed by Shea Homes and Standard Pacific Homes. The new property encompasses seven three-story buildings arranged around central courtyards and are linked by tree-lined pedestrian friendly landscaped walks. It provides 21 one-bedroom, 34 two-bedroom, and 39 three-bedroom apartments. The Spanish influenced architecture features tuck-under garages for each apartment along with additional surface parking areas for residents and guests.
Bonterra includes a 3,500 square-foot community recreation center for use by Jamboree residents as well as landscaped community spaces for outdoor recreation. The building amenities include property management offices and classroom space designed for resident services provided by Housing with HEART, Jamboree's resident services group.
In Jamboree's ongoing commitment to sustainability, the property is designed as its first development to achieve a LEED (Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design) certified Silver rating. The LEED Green Building Rating System is the nationally accepted benchmark for the design, construction, and operation of high-performance green buildings. LEED promotes a whole-building approach to sustainability by recognizing performance in five key areas of human and environmental health: sustainable site development, water savings, energy efficiency, materials selection and indoor environmental quality.
Formerly owned by Nuevo Energy, Blackstone is an 800-acre master plan area located along the 57 Freeway that includes seven new neighborhoods, a new City sports park, and extensive preserved open space. It is ideally situated for Bonterra residents, as it is located near major retail, entertainment and employment centers. Residents also have exceptional views of surrounding cityscape and open space including the future Wildcatter's Park located across the street from the neighborhood. A central landscaped paseo connects the neighborhood's residential buildings and community center to the main thoroughfare, Santa Fe Road.
