SEASONS at Ontario Gateway Plaza







During the 1990s, a run-down 1950’s shopping mall in the City of Ontario’s redevelopment zone was transformed by a creative mixed-use plan by LINC and a commercial developer. While the shopping center was fully rebuilt, LINC added 80 new senior rental homes called SEASONS at Ontario Gateway Plaza on one segment of this large site. The plan is a success. Seniors stroll to and from the new center through a gateway to a supermarket, bank, drug store, restaurants, and a beauty school with discounted services. Vendors deliver to the SEASONS, pick up shopping carts, and bring donuts to the community every Friday morning.

The apartments at SEASONS at Ontario Gateway Plaza are available in one and two bedroom floor plans and include a modern kitchen, spacious closets, patio or balcony, central heat and cooling, and covered parking. The senior clubhouse has activity rooms, fireplace and barbeque area, pool, and community library. The gated community is also convenient to public transportation. The shopping mall, which had been reduced to 30% occupancy 1998, is now enjoying full occupancy and a thriving business from our seniors and the rest of the neighborhood.

SEASONS at Ontario Gateway Plaza has proven to be a new model for our industry. Our vision for this mixed-use site has garnered special recognition and awards from the California Redevelopment Association, National Council on Senior Housing (NCOSH), the League of California Cities, and the Seniors’ Housing Council of the Building Industry Association of Southern California.
