Loma Rica Ranch – Specific Plan

thumb (25)

Originally approved as a thoroughbred horse ranch, Loma Rica Ranch in the Nevada County foothills was poised for development. Our firm was asked to provide concept and schematic designs for development, including a program summary, constraints analysis, draft and final schematic plans, and a measured base plan.

The ranch presents an ideal infill development opportunity.

The ranch is surrounded by a bustling commercial district, business parks, medical complexes, market-rate and multi-family housing, and presents an ideal infill development opportunity. Using high-density, mixed-use product and best management practices, development will be clustered to preserve sensitive habitat and provide substantial quantities of open space for active and passive recreation. An alternative water treatment plant will be utilized and sustainable, energy-efficient programs will be implemented.
