420 apartments on offer south of Manteca Town Golf Course

A 420-unit apartment complex is proposed for land immediately south of the Manteca Golf Course.

Dubbed the Prose project, it is 20 walk-up 3-story garden buildings on an 18-acre plot between Kaiser Permante medical practices to the west and existing retail to the east.

There are now 720 apartments under planning review and another 440 units are under construction or have just been completed. When all are completed under current occupancy performance factors, they will add an additional 2,200 residents to Manteca.

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

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

There will be three driveways from the northern portion leading to Center Street and two driveways from the southern portion.

The West Yosemite Avenue entrance will connect to the traffic lights at the existing intersection with Winters Drive.

There will be 170,000 square feet of common space, 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 completed.

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

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

The Prose will run into the Stonegate apartment complex which straddles Center Street to the east. Part of the Stonegate complex is adjacent to Westwood Village

Between the three complexes plus 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 have approximately 1,000 apartments.

The Prose project comprises 10,786 acres where the city approved the never-built 186-unit Alma Place complex more than a decade ago.

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

Additionally, site work is underway for the 136-unit approved Manteca luxury apartments on Lathrop Road west of Union Road.
