Entry Description

CHOC Monarch is the first multifamily affordable home development entitled in the City of Palm Springs in over a decade; 60 families will call Monarch "home." This development's building sizes are in proportion to single family residences, aligning with the neighborhood's historical architectural context. Monarch's site design offers tree groves, water play, parklets and other, intentional social spaces to emphasize community connection. Our building design is inspired by mid-century modern style, modernized by sustainable energy principles.
