420 apartments proposed south of Manteca’s city golf course

A 420-unit apartment complex is being proposed for land immediately south of the Manteca golf course.

Dubbed the Prose Project, it involves 20 garden walk-up 3-story buildings on an 18-acre parcel between Kaiser Permante medical offices on the west and existing commercial on the east.

There are now 720 apartment units in planning review with another 440 units under construction or just completed. When they are all completed under current occupancy  yield factors they will add 2,200 more residents to Manteca.

The Prose Project will require the extension of Center Street to the west with a slight swing to the north.

Seven of the apartment buildings will be located north of Center Street. The other 13 buildings will be between Center Street and West Yosemite Avenue.

There will be three driveways from the northern part accessing Center Street and two driveways from the southern portion.

The entrance from West Yosemite Avenue will tie into the traffic signals at the existing intersection with Winters Drive.

There will be 170,000 square feet of common area, 746 parking spaces, and a community center.

The complex will have 190 one-bedroom units and 230 two-bedroom units.

It will be the second largest apartment complex in Manteca when finished.

The largest is The Atherton along Atherton Drive next to Bass Pro Shops. The second half of the 428-unit complex is currently under construction.

What is destined to be the third largest complex — Union Crossing with 300 units on the southwest corner of Union Road and Atterton Drive Drive — is in the approval process.

The Prose will bump up against the Stonegate Apartment complex that straddles Center Street to the east. Part of the Stonegate complex is adjacent to Westwood Village

Between the three complexes as well as Fairway Estates on Center Street east of Union Road, two complexes on  Union Road and Park Place apartments on Crom Street, the golf course will be near roughly 1,000 apartment units .

The Prose project incorporates 10.786 acres  where the city more than a decade ago approved as the 186-unit Alma Place complex that was never built.

Several months ago, the 128-unit complex on Lathrop Road east of Union Road was completed.

In addition, site work is underway for the approved 136-unit Manteca Luxury Apartments on Lathrop Road west of Union Road.
