Land developer River Islands Development, a subsidiary of The Cambay Group, is preparing the second phase of development for its River Islands located south of the San Joaquin River in Lathrop, California

River Islands’ first phase, approved a decade ago, called for 4,284 new homes out of the 11,000 homes approved for the entire master plan. More than 800 families already live in the community.
