Emerald Villas is the City's first for-sale, affordable independent-living senior housing community and was developed in 2000. The community is located at the intersection of Carmenita Road and Houston Avenue, in the southeast portion of the City of Cerritos. There are a total of 126 one and two bedroom units, ranging from 700 square feet to 1200 square feet in size.

Through its participation in the development of Emerald Villas, the City of Cerritos worked to create a truly innovative design concept incorporating low-impact, two-story structures with direct and secure access to each unit. Every unit has a full range of amenities for senior residents and sensitively designed kitchens and bathrooms. Units are also designed to accommodate persons with disabilities. Visitors and guests may access each individual unit through a series of winding, tree-lined pedestrian walkways with lush landscaping.  In addition, the Emerald Villas senior housing community includes the following amenities:

  • A community pool and spa
  • A community recreation facility
  • A covered bus stop/planter that provides access to the City's Cerritos on Wheels (COW) fixed-route transportation service
  • Private resident elevators
  • Decorative fountain and a high-quality art piece

The Emerald Villas community has reached maximum capacity and all units have been sold.

If you have additional questions, please call the Cerritos Community Development Department, Advance Planning/Economic Development Division at (562) 916-1201.
