Santa Clara, Calif.—SummerHill Housing Group plans to develop Nuevo, a 994-unit community with approximately 40,000 square feet of neighborhood retail and restaurants in the 65+/-Lawrence Station Area Plan in Santa Clara. Located on nearly 27 acres bounded by Lawrence Expressway, Central Expressway and Kifer Road, this will be Santa Clara’s largest master-planned housing development since Rivermark.

The development will consist of a wide spectrum of housing types: 155 E-Homes and E-Towns designed by Woodley Architectural Group; 537-unit apartment community including 98 affordable homes, 120 condominium units, six live/work units designed by KTGY Architecture & Planning; and 176-TownFlat units designed by SDG Architects. HMH Engineers is the engineer for the project and the landscape architect is R3 Studios.

The company has started the demolition of the aging light industrial facilities located on site and expects to start construction on the for-sale residential models and the apartment community in September 2017, and complete the apartments in late 2019, and the buildout of the for-sale community in 2022.

“We have been working with the city of Santa Clara for over three years and have assembled land from seven different landowners,” said Robert Freed, president & CEO of SummerHill Housing Group, in prepared remarks. “Given the scale of this new master-plan community, with expansive parks, neighborhood-serving retail, and a short walk to Caltrain, we anticipate that we will see many young professionals, singles and couples that are looking for a home close to their jobs and close to transit that connects them to Santa Clara and beyond. With our single-level condominiums, we also expect to attract move-down buyers looking to downsize and remain in Santa Clara.”

Property amenities include over three acres of fully improved public parks, a community garden, an approximately 4,000-square-foot community center, a dog park, bike share facilities and paths, movies in the park, tot lot with children’s play equipment, basketball/sport court and picnic tables. Apartment homes amenities include pools, outdoor barbecue areas, club rooms, fitness centers, business centers, pet grooming facilities and bike storage/repair facilities.

SummerHill Homes is currently under construction on new residential communities in the San Francisco Bay Area in Moraga, Los Gatos, Mountain View, Saratoga, Fremont, Pleasanton and Redwood City for a total portfolio of more than 6,170 residential homes.
