Magnolia Courts at La Verne, a newly constructed development of 101 Craftsman style condominiums, represents the next era of responsible planning for the San Gabriel Valley.  The development is set to be an ultra dynamic, active adult community that unifies architectural heritage, luxury living, and environmental stewardship.

Planned over nearly three years by Hsientein La Verne Investments LLC, renowned for multifamily and planned urban developments throughout the San Gabriel Valley, Magnolia Courts at La Verne will be an exemplary product of luxury living lifestyle along with smart and sophisticated high performance building methods. It will establish a benchmark of responsible planning and green building practice.   Magnolia Courts is not only an award-winning design project but is also qualified to obtain an ENERGY STAR®  rating, expected to be the first of its kind in the San Gabriel Valley.
