Proposal for 85 more homes in Lathrop by San Joaquin River
lathrop logo

While the majority of Lathrop’s residential development is occurring in River Islands and the Central Lathrop Specific Plan area near Lathrop High School, there are still other housing tracts on the horizon.

And next week the Lathrop Planning Commission – which typically meets on the third Wednesday of the month at Lathrop City Hall, located at 390 Towne Centre Drive, at 6 p.m. – will look at one of them that would covert a nearly 20-acre lot on Queirolo Road into 85 single-family homes.

Known as part of the Mossdale Landing South project, the planning commission will formally consider a recommendation to the Lathrop City Council to approve a vesting tentative map for the subdivision – which will account for just under one quarter of the total homes that will be built in the master-planned Mossdale Landing South project.

The project site is located at the southwest corner of Sadler Oak Drive & Golden Valley Parkway and east of the San Joaquin River. According to the staff report, the project is “bounded by a residential subdivision to the north, legal non-conforming residential and vacant properties to the east, the San Joaquin River to the west, and undeveloped property to the south.”

With a proposed average lot size of 3,574 square feet, the medium-density neighborhood would boast a 3.5 acre park site and would include connectivity to the existing levee trail along the San Joaquin River that would provide additional access into the Mossdale Landing subdivision to the north.

The property that will be developed is currently owned by Angelo Queirolo and his family and the development, according to the staff report, will be built out by D.R. Horton BAY Inc. – a Delaware-based corporation headquartered in Texas and operating out of San Ramon. The company has been the largest homebuilding by volume in the United States since 2002 – operating in nearly 100 markets in more than two-dozen states.

Thanks to an explosion in residential development over the last decade, Lathrop has gone from one of the areas hardest hit by the economic downturn of 2008 – the city was facing budget shortfalls in excess of $15 million at the worst point in the housing crisis – to one of the fastest growing in the State of California.

The Lathrop Planning Commission meets on the third Wednesday of the month at Lathrop City Hall – located at 390 Towne Centre Drive – at 6 p.m. For additional information, or to obtain a copy of the upcoming agenda, visit the City of Lathrop’s website at
