The community will be gated with a pool, amenity center, gym and landscaping.

The property is near Tamaya at northeast Kernan and Beach boulevards. The Pablo Creek Regional Library is nearby.

The Eastside Community Church, affiliated with the Evangelical Free Church of America, said the sale was strategic for the church to expand its ministry locally and abroad, said Senior Pastor Tim Lusk.

“People are missing community these days and the pandemic has made it worst. Now there will be a church, a public library and the apartments that will create a bit of a community. We’ll be able to minister without being intrusive,” he said.

“We were fortunate because our relationship with the church helped us find a great property and a solution that worked for them and the surrounding community,” said George Leone, Corner Lot COO.
