River Islands in Lathrop has been named one of the most successful master planned communities in America. The recognition comes from RCL Advisors and John Burns Real Estate, two leading real estate consulting firms that study master planned communities all over the country. River Islands was ranked #22 by RCL Advisors and #24 by John Burns Real Estate and was one of only two master-planned communities in Northern California to make the list.
This is River Islands third year on the list; a reflection of the community’s vision and ability to offer something new in home design and community amenities every year.
River Islands Academies
River Islands will be adding an all-new K-8 charter school on-site. Thanks to voter turnout in favor of expanding Banta Elementary into a Unified School District, plans are now underway for a high school within the community as well.
The River Islands lifestyle is all about enjoying the outdoors and taking in the scenic beauty of Lathrop. Picturesque lakes, kid-friendly parks, charming trails, and even our own lakeside restaurant are all reasons why River Islands is the home of the seven-day weekend! And the fun doesn’t stop there! Construction will start this year on an enormous 15-acre park that has been designed along River Islands Parkway, just past Dell’Osso Drive. This park will contain fields for neighborhood sports, picnic areas, play areas and parking. Learn more about the River Islands lifestyle here.
All of the new home neighborhoods at River Islands are being offered in collections, based on their proximity to the many amenities offered by the 5,000 acre site. In 2021, homes will be offered in the Lakeside Collection, the Academy Collection, the Parkside Collection, and the Town Center Collection.
The homes at River Islands are as diverse as the vision of their builders. They range in size from a 1447 square foot plan with 3 bedrooms all the way up to a 6 bedroom home with 3,948 square feet of living space. Many of the homes are built in two story configurations, but several builders also offer single story homes or homes with a master suite downstairs. River Islands has attracted a variety of residents, from first time buyers and young families to mature families to retirees. The result is that every neighborhood is a mixture of age ranges and household sizes. Prices range from the mid $400,000s to over $600,000.
