184 condos proposed for Center St.
This is a rendering of a building thats part of the proposed Almas Place condos.

Manteca’s first multiple-family development designed from the start as condos may be built along a western extension of Center Street.

The Brocchini Family Partnership envisions 184 condos on 10.86 acres straddling both sides of Center Street as it is extended westward to a point 350 feet east of St. Dominic’s Drive. It is part of a parcel sandwiched between Kaiser’s medical offices on the west, the commercial/offices on the east where Valley Dental and AAA are located, the golf course on the north and Yosemite Avenue on the south. The plan is for the 5.84 acres bordering Yosemite Avenue to be developed in the future as commercial.

The project is before the Manteca Planning Commission on Tuesday at 7 p.m. The commission meets in the council chambers at the Civic Center, 1001 W. Center St.

Also on the agenda  is the 200-unit Terra Ranch apartment complex proposed  south of Woodward Avenue at the new alignment for McKinley Avenue. The hearing for that project was continued from the July 21 meeting.

The Brocchini Family Partnership project is dubbed Alma’s Place. It will consist of two-story buildings with one-, two, and three-bedroom units. The plan calls fore a separate community center and a separate recreation facility with a gym, swimming pool, tot lot, and BBQ area for residents. The proposal includes 184 covered parking lots and 230 uncovered stalls.

There is also a bus turnout planned for the extension of Center Street.

The developer has asked to purchase a city-owned parcel immediately to the north where a drainage ditch is located next to the golf course. The plan is to pipe the drainage ditch, cover it up and then landscape it as an open green space.

More than 10 years ago a Stockton developer had proposed developing townhouses along the remaining future alignment of Center Street from where the Alma Place project will end behind the Kaiser offices to Airport Way.

If that plan ever moves forward, it would create the largest concentration of multiple family residences in Manteca between Magnolia Place on the west side of the Civic Center and Airport Way. Stonegate Apartments, Westwood Village Apartments, and Fairway Estates are already located on that stretch of Center Street.
