SummerHill Housing Group Announces 994-Unit Mixed-use Master Plan Development

March 28, 2017 | Builder

SummerHill Housing Group, the umbrella organization for SummerHill Homes, and SummerHill Apartment Communities announced Monday plans to develop Nuevo, a community of 988 residential units and six live/work units in the 65+/-Lawrence Station Area Plan in Santa Clara, California.

Nuevo will be Santa Clara’s largest master planned housing development since Rivermark. Nuevo will consist of 451 for-sale residential units, six for-sale live/work units, 537 apartments, and approximately 40,000 square feet of neighborhood retail and restaurants. The company has started the demolition of the aging light industrial facilities located on site and expects to commence grading for the apartments this summer.

“We are thrilled to be moving forward with this master-plan development,” said Robert Freed, president and CEO, SummerHill Housing Group in a press release. “We have been working with the city of Santa Clara for over three years and have assembled land from seven different landowners.”

“The City is excited to see SummerHill beginning construction in the Lawrence Station Area,” said Santa Clara Mayor, Lisa M. Gillmor in a press release. “Their development is the first of many that will bring the vision for the area to life. With a mix of residential and commercial uses, parkland and pedestrian-friendly development, all within close proximity to the Lawrence Caltrain Station, SummerHill's groundbreaking will officially kick-off the transformation of this area into a vibrant and livable neighborhood.”

SummerHill will offer a wide spectrum of housing types, from condominiums and apartments to townhomes and detached homes. “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,” said Freed. “With our single-level condominiums, we also expect to attract move-down buyers looking to downsize and remain in Santa Clara.”

SummerHill’s Nuevo community will include: 41 E-Homes, 176 TownFlats, 114 E-Towns, 120 condos, six live/work units, and 537 apartment homes of which 98 will be affordable apartment homes.

“We worked with an incredibly creative architect team to bring this exciting Nuevo community to life. Two of our most unique housing forms, the E-Homes and E-Towns, were created by Woodley Architectural Group,” said Katia Kamangar, executive vice president and managing director for SummerHill Housing Group in a press release. “These plans were designed to deliver higher-density for-sale housing with outdoor living translated into luxurious rooftop decks, which is very desired by the market.”

Once the demolition and grading have been completed, SummerHill 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.
