Manteca’s first residential project aimed at serving four distinct income brackets of home buyers is being proposed on 339 acres stretching from a point north of Woodward Avenue south to Sedan Avenue bordering the west side of South Main Street/South Manteca Road.
It could include as many as 1,000 homes ranging from smaller homes ranging from 1,200 to 1,400 square feet at a density of eight to an acre to larger estate-style lots with homes ranging from 3,000 to 5,500 square feet.
Dubbed Griffin Park, it will extend urbanized Manteca to its southern most point at it will border Sedan Avenue bringing tract-style housing with a mile of West Ripon Road.
It also will include a five-acre component for neighborhood-style commercial along South Main Street where the future alignment for Antone Raymus Expressway based on the nearby 1,049-acre Austin Road Business Park north of Sedan Avenue. Altogether there will be four distinctive categories of housing sizes aimed at four different buying markets blended together in a master design that may include a long linear park with a bike path.
