“We could not be more pleased by the addition of Standard Pacific Homes to our team of builders at The Cannery,” said Kevin Carson, President Northern California for NEW HOME. “We’ve been very thorough in our approach to selecting our partners for The Cannery. Today we can say with confidence that we have some the finest companies in the business to help us deliver on our vision of creating a community unlike any other in the West.”

“We are delighted to partner with The New Home Company to be a part of The Cannery which represents a milestone in the evolution of Davis,” said Jon Nicholson, Sacramento Division President for Standard Pacific Homes. “The community’s refreshingly diverse architecture and thoughtful vision for community design create a unique lifestyle choice for Northern California home shoppers.”

In addition to residences, NEW HOME is developing numerous community amenities, including retail shops called The Cannery Village, a recreational center called The Ranch House, The Cannery Amphitheatre, The Farm House Welcome Center and the much anticipated Urban Farm. Viewed as a model of innovative design and sustainable living, The Cannery will be California’s first farm-to-table new home community. Through a collaborative effort with the Center for Land Based Learning, the Urban Farm will provide residents and local restaurants with fresh seasonal produce, including vegetables, fruits and nuts.

The Cannery has also been designed with alternative modes of transportation in mind, including 10 miles of bike trails and bicycle storage alcoves in every garage. A transit plaza in the southern portion of The Cannery has been designed as an outdoor gathering space with easy access to the neighborhood’s retail experience, and will feature covered bicycle parking and dedicated places to use and charge personal electronic devices. All of the homes, condominiums and apartments will be energy efficient and have built-in Livable Design™ features, and most of the landscaping in public areas will feature drought-tolerant vegetation.
