Module 5

the History of the land

The Groves community plan transforms the 126-year-old former Whittier State School and Correctional Facility into homes, retail, recreational facilities and community-serving uses.  Agriculture, including orchards, were an integral part of the facility until its redevelopment in the late 1950s/early 1960s.  Highlights include the restoration of four existing buildings built in the 1920s and 1930s and repurposing those buildings into productive re-use as part of the retail and residential areas.  Community developer Brookfield Residential worked closely with the City of Whittier and a wide range of community stakeholders to achieve a development plan that preserves the site’s primary historic properties while creating an economic engine for City revenues in the form of commercial and residential development.
