The City of Garden Grove, in collaboration with the City of Santa Ana, is seeking a qualified Master Developer to develop a 100-acre site located within close proximity to the Disneyland Resort. Through a Request for Proposals (RFP) process, developers seeking investment opportunities in one of Southern California’s largest greenfield sites are invited to submit a proposal for consideration. The RFP is available online at The deadline to respond to the RFP is Friday, June 28, 2019.

Designated as an Opportunity Zone site, the Willowick property currently operates as an 18-hole golf course, located at 3017 W. 5th Street, in Santa Ana, and owned by the City of Garden Grove. It provides a prime opportunity to create a sustainable, long-term development that offers a safe, vibrant, and multi-use destination for residents, visitors, business owners, and community stakeholders in the affluent Orange County area.

In addition to its close proximity to major freeways, airports, and commercial centers, the Willowick property is situated along the upcoming Orange County Streetcar route, a 4.1-mile city-to-city connection, currently from Santa Ana to Garden Grove. The property also provides connections to the regional train system.

The site is approximately three miles from the popular Disneyland Resort and the Grove District-Anaheim Resort, which attracts over 24 million tourists to the area per year.
