An award-wining school district, enhanced city services and a diverse business mix make Brea the place to live, work and play. Brea, one of the oldest communities in Orange County, was incorporated in 1917 as the city of “oil, oranges and opportunity.” Already well-established as an oil producer, Olinda village in Brea’s rolling northern hills continued to draw workers, and it was time to organize a town and prepare for growth.

The end result of this public/private partnership has been a mixed-use project featuring varied architectural styles and a housing component including units for low-to moderate-income families
