Work will start this month on the initial phase of a planned 780-home development in Tehachapi, with models expected to be ready im November.
The Tehachapi Planning Commission has approved the 140-acre development west of Curry Street between Pinon Street and Highline Road. The $50-million project will include 490 single-family homes, 290 multifamily attached units and a 10-acre convenience shopping center.
The project is a joint venture of the Barmakian Co., a real estate firm based in Rancho Cucamonga, and Jay Morgan Greene, the land owner. According to Barmakian, the development will help meet a projected housing need for employees of California Correctional Institution that is being expanded.
