Q&A: What’s being built on Antelope Road near Rusch Park?

New construction has begun on a three-story single-family home at 7437 Antelope Rd. // Mike Hazlip

By Mike Hazlip–
Drivers travelling along Antelope Road in Citrus Heights may have seen framework recently appear on a new three-story building under construction near the roadway.

So what’s being built at the site?

According to an application submitted to the City of Citrus Heights on Sept. 6, 2018, the building currently under construction at 7437 Antelope Rd., near Rusch Park, will be a single-family dwelling.

Plans list Gold River-based Red Diamond Investment Group as the applicant. The investment group’s website states it is “a privately-held independent real estate investment firm.”

A chain link fence currently separates the construction site from the sidewalk and surrounding properties. Building permits filed with the city show a three-level structure with the front elevation facing Antelope Road.

A site plan, also filed with the city, shows the structure will sit around 20 feet back from the sidewalk, with two off-street parking spaces between the sidewalk and the structure. Adequate setback from nearby Cripple Creek is also shown in plans.

Property records show the half-acre parcel where the new building is being constructed last sold for $30,000 in October 2015. An adjacent single-family home at 7429 Antelope Rd. is located on a separate parcel.
