Stoneridge Creek Pleasanton: Well Worth the WaitHacienda Network
Interest in Stoneridge Creek has remained strong despite the lengthy approval process leading up to the unanimous city council vote in September. Already, more than 1,000 individuals have joined the Priority Reservation Program, putting down deposits to reserve their place at the retirement community.
The program, which expires at the end of this year, offers early depositors significantly discounted pricing and 100% refundability of their deposit, with interest, if they change their mind.
Now that unanimous approval has been given by the City Council, Stoneridge Creek is moving full steam ahead on the project. The next step is construction, which begins in first quarter of 2011.

Council members voted to approve development on the Staples Ranch site, ending years of delays and moving forward with the city's biggest development project since the Hacienda Business Park back in the early 1980s.
The approvals ended a three-year wait for seniors hoping to move into the 637-unit community.
"We are thrilled," said Troy Bourne, vice president of Continuing Life Communities. "We can't wait to get started."
Bourne said his company plans to start construction by early 2011.

It's possible that the independent living units, that will be built first and in phases, could be ready for their first occupants by early 2013.
