Investment Overview

The applicant requests the Planning Commission’s approval of this Preliminary Development Plan for the incremental development of the Albers Ranch, an Active Adult Community on approximately 96.6 acres that are situated in the southeastern part of the Sand Creek Focus Area. The site is on the east side of Deer Valley Road and south of the planned eastward extension of Sand Creek Road. It is in close proximity to two approved residential developments: Promenade Vineyards at Sand Creek and Aviano. The Albers Ranch project consists of approximately 301 single family detached housing units on lots varying in size from 4,000 square feet to 11,000 square feet. The development is tailored to active seniors 55 years of age and older who prefer to reside in a gated community with residents of a similar age whose lifestyle enjoys a slower pace of life. There are no other active adult communities with a setting similar to this proposed development in the city of Antioch. The nearest one with a hillside setting is the Trilogy development in the city of Brentwood. While much smaller in scale, the Albers Ranch development shares the same desirability of a gated residential community with amenities designed specifically for active adults aged 55 and older. But it also shares many of the same development challenges that were faced in the hillsides of Brentwood. The most notable of those challenges is the provision of infrastructure and the grading necessary to create buildable lots while preserving the character of the hillsides and ridgeline. The Planning Commission took up the issue of updating the General Plan Land Use Element with special attention on the Sand Creek Focus Area at its March 16, 2016 public hearing. The staff report and proceedings of the meeting specifically addressed residential density and lot sizes; hillside development; and land use designation maps. The staff report pointed out that "the two housing approvals to date in the Sand Creek Focus Area (Promenade-Vineyards at Sand Creek) demonstrated unique benefits and value to the City through their approval process". The Albers Ranch senior housing development proposal is even more unique and brings exceptional value because of its hillside location and tailoring to Antioch's active adult: a housing product currently absent from Antioch's housing market. Proposed Policies: 2.c.iv encourages Assisted Living facilities to be located within senior housing projects and exempts them from being considered "units" when calculating the project's unit count. The Albers Ranch project includes an Assisted Living facility within the project boundaries. It provides the opportunity for a continuum of care among family members residing within the Albers Ranch community. Nothing like this has ever been built within Contra Costa County to our knowledge. The inclusion of the Assisted Living Facility within the Albers Ranch project is one of its most unique attractions. Many older residents are actively involved in the day-to-day care of older family members. We are an aging society whose median age grows older with every passing year. The availability of senior housing within a community that takes into consideration the value of keeping families connected through the convenient location of an Assisted Living facility is a feature that will increase in value over the buildout of this project, however long that may take. Assisted living communities generate a higher number of calls for service than other housing types. Consequently, the assisted living facility will be designed with significant input from the Contra Costa County Fire Protection District to optimize service access for its residents. 2.c.ii allows a 45% Density Bonus for any project that is 100% Senior Housing. The Albers Ranch project meets this criterion. That allows up to 308 units to be built on the property.
