Eastvale – On March 9, the City of Eastvale hosted their official Downtown Eastvale Groundbreaking Ceremony. The City Council, Eastvale Chamber, city officials and city residents gathered together to celebrate.

The City posted on their social media stating, “At the top of the Downtown Eastvale website it says ‘Honoring Yesterday. Embracing Today. Looking Forward to Tomorrow. Thriving Together.’ One day we’ll walk around downtown and marvel at the way it honors our past and represents our future. It will perfectly capture this community. We’re always working, always growing, always thriving together! Thank you to everyone who joined us today for our groundbreaking ceremony!”

Downtown Eastvale is expected to be located between Hamner Avenue, Limonite Avenue, Scholar Way, and 58th Street. It will include commercial office space, civic and public services, a range of residential offerings, as well as recreational and entertainment opportunities.  The design is outlined in four pillars: Pillar 1 Magical Destination, Pillar 2 Energy & Vitality, Pillar 3 Pedestrian Primary, and Pillar 4 Economic Engine.

The City issued a news release in Sept. 2022 stating that the Leal Ranch Property closed escrow and is now owned by The New Home Company. The Leal Ranch Property was renamed to Phase 1 of Downtown Eastvale.
