LA HABRA – – The swing of sledgehammers this week marked the start of construction on the city’s first set of luxury apartments.

Developer Fairfield plans to start demolition of the boarded-up Sunset Inn in the 1000 block of South Beach Boulevard next week. The apartments will also replace the former home of Samsung Church.

Both lots have been vacant for several years.

The $ 100 million, 335-unit housing complex will be the biggest rental property of this size built since 1999.

The complex will a resort-style pool, barbecue areas, a bocce ball court, a gym and a yoga room. They’ll also have an area honoring the military called Heroes Plaza.

“(La Habra) is completely underserved for apartments,” said Larry Scott, Fairfield’s senior vice president of development.

The city’s housing stock is 95 percent single-family homes.
