About the C Block Parking Structure

The construction of the C-Block Parking Structure was started on May 17, 2021, and is now completed in Spring 2022. This unique C-Block parking building has now opened its doors to the public.Β 

The City of Ontario added 17 electric vehicles (EV) charging stations at the Downtown parking structure, including eight Tesla Superchargers.

The addition of the eight Tesla Superchargers and nine Level 2 charging stations will bring the total number of EV charging stations in the Downtown area to more than 30, representing a significant step forward in meeting the growing demand for all-electric and plug-in hybrid vehicles as well as the infrastructure to support them.

The C Block Project in Ontario 

The Downtown Euclid Avenue Mixed-Use Development (“Development”) spans approximately 1.66 acres. It is bounded on the north by D Street, the east by Lemon Avenue, the south by C Street, and the west by Euclid Avenue.

The C Block project will allow Ontario to continue its attempts to rebuild downtown Ontario by adding additional “urban” high-density residential units. The Ontario Plan designated the Downtown Mixed-Use District (“TOP”). The objective of the Downtown Mixed-Use District is to establish a dense mix of retail, office, and residential uses in a pedestrian-friendly environment while preserving the district’s historic character and focusing on the most intense/dense development around Euclid Avenue and Holt Boulevard. The development’s location is perfect for providing high-density residential units near local retail, public transit, and other facilities to improve future inhabitants’ quality of life.

Approximately 150 market-rate rental housing units will be built as part of the project. 6,000 square feet of ground-level retail and service commercial space will be located directly on Euclid Avenue. The project will have an on-site management office, fully staffed daily, at the northeast corner of Euclid Avenue and C Street. Residents will have access to an outdoor pool and open space as part of the project. One-bedroom flats will be between 690 and 740 square feet, while two-bedroom ones will be between 975 and 1,050 square feet.

Kendrew Development Company in Ontario, California, and Hutton Companies in Orange, California, have teamed together to become the developer. Both companies have a lot of experience constructing, owning, and managing commercial, residential, and mixed-use developments around Southern California.

The entire development cost is expected to be $30,000,000. The development has been planned to deliver significant advantages to the city and catalyzes future growth in the Downtown/Civic Center region. The site plan was created following the development and design criteria of the Downtown Specific Plan.
