LATHROP — When River Islands, the largest new master planned community in Northern California, opens in the late spring, home buyers will be able to walk through models from three of the state’s leading homebuilders:  Brookfield Residential, De Nova Homes, and Van Daele Development.

Each of the home builders is bringing all-new floor plans and elevations to River Islands, with architectural styles and features that reflect the community’s strong ties to the history of the area and to its vision of the future.

“River Islands celebrates the best of our Central Valley lifestyle,” noted Susan Dell’Osso, Project Director.  “Every home design has been planned with our future residents in mind singles, young families, empty nesters and never-nesters. The way the homes fit together and create whole neighborhoods is going to feel great and better yet, live great—right from the start.”

“Having builders of such high reputations as Brookfield, DeNova and Van Daele makes all the difference in the world.  We developed strict architectural guidelines, and each of the builders had exceeded our expectations in their design and features.”

Each builder will focus on homes within a specified square footage range and lot size, ensuring that River Islands future residents will have a variety of types of homes and a broad price range.  Homes are anticipated to be priced from the $300,000s.

Brookfield Residential Northern California is a premier lifestyle provider focused on providing new homes, neighborhoods and communities. Their portfolio shows that they have built a wide selection of homes, from those designed for first time buyers to luxury homes.  The Cambay Group, developer of River Islands, has worked with Brookfield before, in its Windemere master planned community in San Ramon.

 “Brookfield brings a sophisticated approach to design; one that fits the River Islands vision perfectly,” said Dell’Osso.

DeNova Homes is a privately owned homebuilding firm based in Contra Costa.  DeNova is a community-minded builder known for creating neighborhoods that exemplify the best attributes of the areas in which they are built. Their homes in Napa are as distinctly “wine country” in their approach as their Morgan Hill homes exemplify the South Bay urban lifestyle.  Their preliminary plans for River Islands have already been reviewed and approved by the joint River Islands – City of Lathrop architectural review committee.

Van Daele Development is well-known and respected for its rich 25+ year history of home building in California.  As a family-owned company, its executive and senior management team is intensely involved in every aspect of every home that they build. Their commitment to deliver on the brand promise “You’ll feel good about your new home” is why the company continues to obtain outstanding customer satisfaction surveys.

Models for the three new home neighborhoods will start construction in the next few weeks.  To stay apprised of the calendar leading up to a preview showing in the spring, go to and register for information.
