Master-Planned Development Will Provide Relief in Severely Underserved Area
SAN LUIS OBISPO, Calif., July 17, 2018 – Presidio Residential Capital and Williams Homes recently acquired property in southeastern San Luis Obispo to build the first 33 units of a 113-unit community called The Arroyos at Righetti. This new neighborhood will be part of Righetti, a new 165-acre, mixed-use development, which will have a broad range of product types, sizes and price points to serve the housing needs for the overall community.
“This beautiful, centrally located community will help address the severe housing shortage in San Luis Obispo, which has been exacerbated by job and population growth,” said Lance Williams, president and CEO of Williams Homes. “We can’t wait to tell interested homebuyers who have been unable to find housing here their long commutes are finally over.”
The community is two miles southeast of downtown San Luis Obispo and 3.5 miles southeast of Cal Poly University in the Orcutt Specific Plan Area, which seeks to protect natural resources while adding much-needed housing. Major retailers are a half of a mile away, and the community is close to the Union Pacific Railroad, a park and open space.
The 113 homes in The Arroyos at Righetti community will be built on 5,000-square-foot lots and feature Farmhouse, Mission, Craftsman and Bungalow styling. These three to four-bedroom homes will range from 1623 – 2386 square feet with prices starting in the high $700,000s.
The master-planned development will include a neighborhood park with tennis and basketball courts, a soccer field, pickle ball and a playground. A pocket park will offer a climbing wall, barbecue and picnic stations and a linear park with a community garden, playground, picnic tables and a produce stand.
According to the National Association of Home Builders’ formula to determine the local impact of single-family housing in typical metro areas, adding 113 single-family homes will generate $32.4 million in local income, $4 million in taxes and other revenue for local governments and 445 local jobs.
