Diversified Pacific received city approval to redevelop part of the Upland Hills Country Club golf course in Upland, Calif. The homebuilder acquired 8.4 acres from the golf course to make room for 68 detached condominiums.
By selling the land, the owners, led by Dr. Chris Kim, will be able to pay off a $5.8 million loan on the course, making it debt-free. But, the sale will shrink the field of play on four holes. The owners will invest $749,000 to accommodate the changes and improve the golf course.
"The golf course is a value that we want to see maintained and enhanced," Peter Pitassi, partner with Diversified Pacific Development told the council at its Feb. 27 meeting, as reported by the Inland Valley Daily Bulletin.
The project will bring the total number of housing units to 612 on the 215 acres on the site. The home plans include seven floor plans, ranging from 1,390 square feet to 2,420 square feet. The course was developed in the 1980s.
