Citrus Walk Covina CA at Magic Hour

COVINA, CA. – July 28, 2011 – The Olson Company, the leading developer of in-town urban living, announces the debut of two communities within a 20 minute commute to downtown Los Angeles. Citrus Walk, located in the heart of downtown Covina and within walking distance to shops, restaurants, and MetroLink, and Rio Walk in Montebello just 8 miles from LA Civic Center. Both communities offer LEED Certified homes that are innovatively designed to fit active, urban lifestyles.

Citrus Walk is The Olson Company’s fifth new urban living residential development in the Covina area. The Citrus Walk community will offer 37 townhomes and 8,000 square feet of new retail space along downtown Covina’s Citrus Avenue, with 12 flats over the new retail storefronts. The townhomes, each with approximately 1,580 square feet and three stories, will have 2-3 bedrooms, 2 baths and 1-2 powder rooms, and 2-car garages. Metrolink’s Express service from the Covina station is a fast pass to downtown LA and just a short walk from Citrus Walk’s front door.

With prices starting in the high $290,000’s, Rio Walk is an exceptional value and highly desirable option for prospective homebuyers looking to live in the heart of Los Angeles County close to employment centers, retail, dining, transportation, recreation and entertainment.

Rio Walk is located in historic Montebello and just 8 miles from downtown Los Angeles and the newly opened L.A. Live Entertainment Complex adjacent at Staples Center. Montebello’s neighborhood community features rolling hills, bike baths and much more while providing quick access to the newly created downtown Los Angeles entertainment district, giving many young homebuyers the option of having the best of both worlds close at hand. Combine this great location, affordable pricing, and under 20 minute commute to LA; the choice for selecting a new home becomes clear to understand.

The homes, built to exceed LEED green living standards, feature energy efficient amenities including Energy Star appliances; water efficient and lead-free faucets; highly water efficient toilets; auto shut-off motion sensors in all baths, space saving tank-less water heaters, and built-in recycle bins, among many other features.

“The Citrus Walk community represents the culmination of years of work with the City of Covina to create a new brand of ‘walkable’ community within Covina’s downtown, offering the best of an in-town lifestyle,” said Steve Olson, Chairman/CEO of The Olson Company. “Located close to shops, restaurants, and MetroLink’s new San Bernardino Express line, Citrus Walk embraces and caters to active lifestyles.”

The Olson Company’s numerous successful urban living developments across Southern California over the last 22 years reflect its commitment to the homebuyer as top priority. With its notable homeowner satisfaction, The Olson Company has garnered prestigious Eliant Awards in six categories in 2010, including a number one ranking for the “Design Selection” experience, and second for delivering an incredible experience during the Purchase, Construction, and Customer Service phases, and ranked second for “Overall Quality” and “Sales from Referrals.” The Olson Company believes in “livability,” and implements a thoughtful and detail-oriented approach from concept through execution. As part of their unique approach to providing these communities, The Olson Company understands all that goes into buying a new home and provides tailored services to support the needs of homebuyers, such as financial education and continued support services.
