The Alessandro Heights neighborhood is in the southernmost part of the original 39.4 square miles of the City of Riverside. The neighborhood is bordered by the Hawarden Hills and Canyon Crest neighborhoods to the north, Arlington Heights neighborhood to the west, the community of Woodcrest in the County to the south and the Mission Grove neighborhood to the east.
When the neighborhood was first created, it remained largely undeveloped until a large residential push was made in the 1980’s. Alessandro Heights is a low density, large lot single-family residential neighborhood. It was developed primarily for homes within a hilly community that offers many homeowners spectacular views of the surrounding area. These hills offer a gorgeous view, but also have some minor inconveniences. For example, if you take a look at the map, you can see access to this area is only from Washington Street.
The city started a project that would aim to help traffic, they claimed would needed for future use. However, this was shutdown from residents and as of today, will never be completed. You can read articles about this here and here. The goal for the road was to provide a continuous path from Alessandro to Washington Street, and if an additional connector road was built, to Madison Street and eventually the 91 freeway.
These roads(and roads leading no where) will take to the most luxurious homes in Riverside. Alessandro Heights has the largest homes, highest property values, and highest income levels. Most estimates put the average yearly household income around $130,000. If you want to live in the largest homes in Riverside, Alessandro Heights is the neighborhood for you!
Living in this neighborhood puts you near 3 of the 6 natural arroyos in Riverside. If you are not familiar, arroyos are are “naturally occurring ephemeral drainages created over thousands of years as seasonal rains eroded the hills. Natural runoff in addition to that from agriculture and development has created a year-round supply of water, and riparian plants flourish throughout the year within the arroyos¹.” These areas are heavily protected by the city and the residential developments are essentially built around and with these areas in mind. All of these features have shaped what this community is today, making it one of the most distinguished communities in the city of Riverside.
