THE MASTER PLAN
RIVER ISLANDS IS A MASTER PLANNED COMMUNITY NOW BEING BUILT ALONG THE SAN JOAQUIN RIVER
OUR ALMOST 5,000 ACRE SITE IS PLANNED TO BRING TOGETHER ALL OF THE BEST ELEMENTS OF THE RELAXED DELTA LIFESTYLE WITH A VISION THAT IS DECIDEDLY GREEN, HEALTHY, HIGH TECH AND IN HARMONY WITH NATURE.

We have envisioned a community comprised of architecturally-distinctive neighborhoods built by some of California’s most outstanding home builders.  Schools that are in step with advanced curricula and state-of-the-art learning devices.  A 350 acre business campus designed for research, campus uses and headquarters space. A beautifully-detailed downtown retail area, with businesses, shops and dining. Acres and acres of parks, playing fields, lake recreation and nearby access to the Delta.  All connected to the Tri-Valley, BART and Silicon Valley by ACE Train.

River Islands is a place to live, work, learn, play and most of all—a place to belong.
Our Masterplan includes:
• Approximately 4,905 total acres
• Approximately 11,000 residences to be built over the next 20+ years
• Nine schools planned within the community
• Acres of parks, playing fields, green spaces and picnic areas
• Neighborhood lakes for non-motorized boats
• 18 miles of riverfront trails for bicycling and pedestrian use
• 11 miles of lakefront access
• Nearby access to hundreds of miles of Delta waterways
• State-of-the-art business campus, now in the planning
• Downtown retail, now being designed
• Served by the Altamont Commuter Express (ACE) Train, with connections to BART
• Convenient to I-5, I-205, I-580 and Hwy 99
Water saving technology
River Islands won White House recognition for its water saving technology. River Islands and Nexus eWater have partnered to give homeowners a way to recycle water from showers and dishwashers to keep the lawn green.

Super Levee
Picture taken at River Islands
The River Islands flood control program is unprecedented.  Specially constructed 300-foot wide “super levees” create a high ground perimeter at the river’s edge, providing a 200 year level of protection for the first 900 acres of the development and constitutes the flood protection plan for the balance of the project.
