Integral Communities Announces the Launch of Northlake, a 577-Acre MPC in Sacramento’s Natomas Region

Sales have started for new homes in Lennar’s first eight neighborhoods

SACRAMENTO, CALIF. (January 26, 2021) Integral Communities has announced the launch of Northlake, a new 577-acre master-planned community located just a short drive from downtown Sacramento in the community of North Natomas. Upon completion, Northlake will deliver approximately 2,175 single-family homes, 331 multifamily residences and 191 senior affordable apartments to a growing and underserved region for housing. Sales have started for the first phase of development, which includes approximately 1,137 single-family homes within eight new home neighborhoods by Lennar, one of the nation’s leading homebuilders.

“Northlake will offer residents so much, from its unique sense of place connected to nature to sleek modern new home designs and unsurpassed community amenities,” said John Stanek, principal at Integral Communities. “With eight new home neighborhoods including opportunities for lakeside living, Northlake will appeal to a wide range of buyers and lifestyles.”

More buyers are flocking to the suburbs in search of bigger homes with more space to handle their increasingly versatile lifestyles, and the Sacramento metro has ridden that trend to the biggest year-over-year housing growth in California. Approximately 7,100 homes were built in the four-county area in 2020, and up to 8,000 more are expected this year.1

“With the ongoing success of our partnership with Lennar at Tracy Hills (another one of our master-planned communities about an hour south in Tracy), we are grateful to continue our relationship with Lennar and our shared commitment to delivering beautiful communities and homes in desirable locations,” Stanek added.

Offering a diverse range of home designs, Lennar’s eight neighborhoods in Phase One are Shor, Lakelet, Watersyde, Wavmor, Crestvue, Bleau, Drifton, and Atla. The home collections offer a mix of single-level and two-story home sizes ranging from 1,774 to nearly 4,000 square feet. Offering luxury lakeside homes, the Bleau (~2,150 to 3,180 square feet), Watersyde (~2,307 to 2,968 square feet), Crestvue (~1,797 to 3,178 square feet) and Atla home collections (~2,632 to 3,940 square feet) will include (according to plan) loft, patio and deck options (some with lake views), with the Atla homes to be built on the largest lots at Northlake, starting at approximately 6,600 square feet. Lennar will offer four of its highly sought-after Next Gen® – The Home Within A Home ® floor plans at Northlake. Since its inception

in 2011, the Next Gen ® floor plan has offered a solution to address the rising trend of multigenerational households. All Lennar homes will include solar power and the homebuilder’s signature Everything’s Included® program which provides high-end features and popular upgrades, such as slab-quartz countertops, stainless steel appliances and integrated home automation at no additional cost.

“The Sacramento metro area continues to attract homebuyers of all lifestyles and we are delighted to introduce our beautiful new home designs to the stunning Northlake location,” said Bob Tummolo, division president at Lennar. “Our quality, cutting-edge homes provide people, from first-time to move-up homebuyers to young professionals and young families, with their ideal space in an outstanding location.”

Resident amenities at Northlake will include the 1.5-acre Private Residents’ Club, which features a lap and lounge pool, turf area, cabanas, hospitality bar, lake observation deck and BBQs; the LakeHouse for entertaining private parties; numerous neighborhood parks; walking trails and bike paths around beautiful lakes with paseos that connect neighborhoods to the Lakewalk paths; outdoor recreation areas; and open spaces. Northlake will also include planned future retail, a planned future TK-8 school, and approximately 191 senior affordable apartments by St. Anton Communities.

Northlake’s travel and commuting options include the Sacramento International Airport to the northwest, close proximity to I-5 to the south and SR 99 to the east, and a planned future light rail station within the community. Residents will also have close driving access to nearby employment centers including an Amazon Distribution Facility, the State Capitol, the upcoming Metro Airport Park, and numerous employers in downtown Sacramento as well as shopping at Natomas Town Center and Natomas Marketplace and entertainment such as the new North Natomas Community Center and Aquatics Complex.

“Northlake will offer residents a complete living experience,” added Stanek. “The quality of life will be enviable when you consider the attraction and connection of Northlake. Whether you’re looking for adventure, relaxation or fun, you can find it all, being in close proximity to the airport, State Capitol, downtown Sacramento, and the American and Sacramento rivers and marinas.”

Sales are currently being conducted by appointment only. Lennar’s 33 model homes are anticipated to be open for touring in late spring 2021. For more information, please visit or call 916-304-9822.
