Housing Claremont carefully evaluates all upcoming development projects in the city of Claremont. How does Housing Claremont evaluate a project? Below are our core values – these are the benchmarks we look for before we support a program. Learn more about how we evaluate a project here.

Housing Claremont Core Values

Larkin Place

Housing Claremont strongly supports this development, which meets the highest standard for affordability (100% affordable to extremely low-income tenants). Moreover, its target population is formerly homeless adults, it is a high-density development, and its location is convenient to public transportation, grocery outlets, and Larkin Park. Even without an EIR to fully assess the sustainability of the project, Housing Claremont can offer our strong support.


740 Foothill Blvd.

There has been significant local opposition to a much-needed well-designed apartment building proposed for 740 E Foothill in an unincorporated county area adjacent to San Dimas and La Verne. The 43 apartment homes will serve 42 households of seniors experiencing or at risk of homelessness and a unit set aside for an onsite property manager.


Village South

The merits of this project include its location, density, transit orientation, commitment to sustainability, mixed-use, and broad target population, which includes both small families and seniors. Housing Claremont looks forward to learning more about the project’s commitment to affordability and hopes to see, at minimum, a 15% set-aside for median income households.


Chris Hartmire Plaza

1321 E. Holt Ave., Pomona

With solid community support, the Cesar Chavez Foundation is building “Chris Hartmire Plaza” a 90-unit affordable housing project, comprised of 30 one-bedroom units, 30 two-bedroom units, and 30 three-bedroom units on a 2.3 acre vacant property. The future residents will be low-income families and homeless veterans earning between 30 and 60 percent of the area median income. Some of the units will be reserved for families and individuals at risk of homelessness or with disabilities.


Old School House

This project’s key merits include its commitment of 15% affordability for median income households, as well as its density and location.

The nation’s largest nonprofit developer of affordable housing has purchased a former church site in Claremont where it plans to build an apartment building for veterans, including some who are unhoused. Mercy Housing California purchased the former Solid Rock Church and plans to build a three-story building with 74 rental apartments on the 1.89-acre parcel. Mercy plans to begin construction in December 2025 and be done in fall 2027.
