Get ready for a new Manteca building boom south of the future McKinley Avenue and 120 Bypass interchange.
Developers secured approval Tuesday from the Manteca City Council to start rough grading on the 74.5 acre Terra Ranch neighborhood being built on the southeast corner of Woodward Avenue where it intersects with a partial section of the new alignment of McKinley Avenue that is in place roughly a quarter of a mile east of the original McKinley Avenue.
The approval is in advance of a final map approval. The development already had an environmental impact report and tentative map approved in 2011. The final map, expected to be before the council in February, simply needs to verify that everything laid out in the tentative map is being met. The developer, as an indication of his eagerness to start the project, has already had surveyors stake the land.
Terra Ranch is the latest development moving forward to ground breaking as Manteca becomes ground zero for the biggest residential home boom in the Northern San Joaquin Valley.
While there are more than 10,000 approved or proposed homes in play that have yet to be built in Manteca with almost all south of the 120 Bypass, Terra Ranch is the first of four new neighborhoods that will add 4,012 housing units south of the McKinley Avenue/120 Bypass interchange targeted to break ground in 2019.
They are:
uTrails of Manteca: 1,178 homes, 192 townhouses, 280 apartments
uOakwood Trails: 676 homes
uOakwood Landing: 975 homes, 290 apartments
uTerra Ranch: 212 homes, 209 apartments
The Terra Ranch homes will be the first to pay fees designed to help pay for Manteca’s share of a projected $176 million needed to upgrade Reclamation District 17 levees along the San Joaquin River and a cross or dry levee south of Woodward Avenue to provide a large swatch of currently developed Lathrop (minus River Islands), Weston Ranch in Stockton, southwest Manteca, and rural areas between French Camp and Lathrop where 48,000 residents now reside. One-third Manteca Unified’s 24,500 students are housed at campuses within the 200-year floodplain.
Land where Terra Ranch and the other three neighborhoods are being built have certified 100-year flood protection.
Projects in the area will account for the lion’s share of the $13.9 million that new projects will pay for Manteca’s portion of the 200-year floodplain  will be paying for the work required by Senate Bill 5.
The fees are $3,145 for a single family home, $1,417 per 1,000 square feet of commercial, $1,096 per 1,000 square feet of industrial, and $904 per unit of multiple family complexes.
Oakwood Landing — proposed for 258.99 acres south of the future McKinley Avenue and 120 Bypass interchange, straddling Woodward Avenue and abutting against the segment now in place of the new eastern alignment of McKinley Avenue on the east and on the west by the future alignment of Atherton Drive where is curves south to T-intersect with Woodward Avenue — encompasses 1,265 housing units including 290 apartments.
Oakwood Landing is just east of the approved 1,460 homes Trails of Manteca south of Woodward Avenue and the Oakwood Shores gated community that has been on the books since 2010. Oakwood Landing north of Woodward Avenue is bordered on the west by Oakwood Trails that will add 676 homes.
Oakwood Shores is outside Manteca’s city limits.
