Oceanside is getting a new 30-acre gated community as a team of developers recently held an official ground breaking event for the Pacific Ridge project. Presidio Residential Capital and Cornerstone Communities are working on the project that is part of the city’s Rancho del Oro master planned community. This is the the third project under construction by the Presidio/Cornerstone venture, which is currently working on two other developments in Bakersfield and Chula Vista.
Comprised of three communities totaling 317 residences, Pacific Ridge will offer distinct styles of homes in each of the areas. Lucero will offer residents 125 three-and-a-half to four-bedroom townhomes with sizes up to 1,825 square feet. Brisas will be a 120-home community with homes ranging in size between 1,480 and 1,812 square feet, while Altura will offer higher-end homes, with 72 single-family detached homes ranging from 1,770 to 2,030 square feet being planned here. The resident amenity package will feature a heated lap pool, spa, lounge area, common dining and entertainment space, a dog park, outdoor fitness facilities and a walking path. Homes will be available for sale during the summer of 2016, while model construction will begin in January.
