Residential Development

Since its inception in 1991, Pacific Union Homes, the predecessor of Pacific Union Land Company, has built over 2,000 single-family and apartment homes in 22 residential subdivisions and two multi-family communities. Beginning with the vision to build a single-family, in-fill community on a former industrial property in San Leandro that was being marketed as an office-industrial development, Pacific Union built a full-service production home building company that provided everything from site acquisition and entitlement to home construction, customer service and sales and marketing. The management team, consisting of industry-leading professionals, created and implemented the internal systems necessary to successfully manage this growth while at the same time producing single-family home subdivisions that received several industry awards such as the prestigious "Gold Nugget Award" presented each year at the Pacific Coast Builders' Conference.

Featured Projects


California's Central Valley
2001 – 2008

Pacific Union started the “Claremont Collection” with the 122 lot Claremont project in Modesto which set a new standard for the local, move-up market. Due to overwhelming buyer demand, we expanded our offering to 10 more communities in the Central Valley from nearby Oakdale, Turlock and Ceres to Atwater, Porterville and Tulare further south. In all, the Claremont Collection consisted of over 1,000 homes built from 2001 through 2008.

Danville, California
Adaptive Reuse of Former Elementary School Site   |   88 Homes
1994 – 1997

Stony Brook consists of 88 detached, single-family homes built on a former elementary school site in Danville, California. Pacific Union bought the site from the school district and handled all the project level entitlements. The project achieved a density of approximately 13 units per acre through its creative land plan which utilized zero-lot lines and a shared common driveway for each “pod” of five homes. Stony Brook won several “Gold Nugget Awards at the 1996 Pacific Coast Builders’ Conference.
