Lennar Homes will have the first part of its massive development in El Dorado Hills, Calif. up for review this week, reports Sacramento Business Journal staffer Ben van der Meer.

A two-story apartment complex for retirees is up for review, but it’s just a small part of Lennar’s development, Heritage at El Dorado Hills. The development also will include 1,100 single-story homes on 250 acres. The first move-ins should begin this summer.

“There will be a lot of amenities where active adults can not only utilize them, but socialize,” said Robert Tummolo, division president with Lennar. A number of trails and pocket parks will connect the homes, and the entire development will share a pool, tennis courts, amphitheater, social center, exercise and yoga studio and other features.

Models for the homes are now under construction, in three different product lines. Tummolo said the homes will include an additional small living space with kitchenette that could host a family member, an extended guest, or a caretaker.
