Presidio Residential Capital and Lafferty Communities will break ground in June on Amberfield, an environmentally friendly 36-unit community on 9.84 acres in Brentwood, Calif. Construction on the model homes will begin in September 2015, and a grand opening is scheduled for early spring 2016.
"This is Presidio's first of what we hope to be many homebuilding ventures with Lafferty Communities," said Presidio principal Paul Lucatuorto. "We look forward to a successful project and long-term relationship with this experienced team."
The $20.4 million community, which will be built on a vacant lot on O'Hara Lane and Smith Road, will offer homes with four floor plans and three elevations (Farmhouse, Italian Villa and Italian Country). The development will feature sustainable features, including prep for solar panels, low-water landscaping and electric car outlets in the garages. The homes will have slab granite countertops, maple cabinets and a Bosch appliance package.
"Lafferty Communities has built more than 250 homes in Brentwood and we're pleased to be welcomed back with such enthusiasm from the Brentwood Planning Commission," said Rick Lafferty, president and CEO of Lafferty Communities. "With the support of Presidio Residential Capital, we're excited to develop and build the Amberfield project while bringing our legacy of craftsmanship, premium quality and appreciation back to Brentwood."
Close to major employers including John Muir and Kaiser Permanente Hospitals and open-air mall Streets of Brentwood, Amberfield is near four local golf courses and Delta Waterways. A BART extension to the area has been proposed.
"These are the projects you really want to see come into the City of Brentwood," said Brentwood Planning Commission Chairman Lance Crannell.
According to the National Association of Home Builders' formula to determine the local impact of single-family housing in typical metro areas, adding 36 single-family homes will generate a total of $10.3 million in local income, $1.2 million in taxes and other revenue for local governments and 142 local jobs.
