Otay Ranch Ranked Eighth Best Master-Planned Community in the Country

Chula Vista, California, development has risen steadily the last three years  in John Burns Real Estate Consulting’s annual Top 50 Master Plan Communities ranking

NEWPORT BEACH, Calif. (February 11, 2020)—Baldwin & Sons, the builder and developer responsible for creating thriving communities for Southern California families for over six decades, announced today that Otay Ranch in Chula Vista, California, climbed to No. 8 in John Burns Real Estate Consulting’s Top 50 Master-Planned Communities of 2019 ranking. A net sales increase of approximately 27 percent last year pushed the masterplan up two spots in the latest rankings. Baldwin & Sons is the developer of Otay Ranch by Baldwin & Sons, which comprises the majority share of the overall Otay Ranch masterplan.

“We are quite excited to see Otay Ranch recognized as one of the country’s most esteemed masterplans,” said Al Baldwin, founder and CEO of Baldwin & Sons. “As a family-owned and operated company, we not only take great pride in building quality homes, we strive to deliver communities that appeal to a wide range of families with engaging options and a variety of price points. It means a lot to be ranked a top 10 masterplan by such a widely respected housing authority.”

To be considered for the Top 50 masterplans by John Burns Real Estate Consulting, an award-winning industry leader in U.S. housing analysis, communities are required to include a range of home sizes, types, and prices and a variety of builders; consistent themes, such as signage, landscaping, lighting, street names, mailboxes, etc.; shared or reciprocal amenities and activities for a variety of lifestyles; and branding and marketing that give the community a unique and well-recognized identity.

Otay Ranch by Baldwin & Sons meets those criteria, offering an impressive variety of new home options, from townhomes and entry-level detached units to ultra-posh residences and everything in between. Baldwin & Sons continues to offer numerous new home communities within the masterplan. Recent new home releases in the past few months at six of its coveted communities include new phases at the Signature, Alay and Suwerte communities being built by Heritage Building & Development, and new Bella Sitia and Parc Place home phases being built by Pacific Coast Communities. A brand-new phase release also occurred in January at Cantamar, a community also being built by Pacific Coast Communities. Combined, these new phase releases provide a wide spectrum of buyers with numerous floor plans, styles and amenities to meet a variety of wants, needs and lifestyles.

Baldwin & Sons also knows the importance of offering homes at attainable price points given that renting was found to be more affordable than buying in 69 percent of the 136 U.S. counties with a population of 500,000 or more.1 In a county (San Diego) notorious for both high demand and exorbitant pricing, Otay Ranch by Baldwin & Sons is one of few communities where buyers can actually find a quality new home that is reasonably priced. The recent releases featured home offerings ranging from the mid-$300,000s to the high $800,000s.

Located just 7.5 miles from downtown San Diego, Otay Ranch by Baldwin & Sons combines the best of traditional American neighborhoods with the latest in community design. Residents enjoy the community’s small-town character and numerous pedestrian parks, trails, tot lots, picnic areas, and grassy fields for play and sports. Each village within Otay Ranch includes its own private swim club facility – owned and managed by the village HOA. Nearby amenities include award-winning schools, excellent medical care, and vibrant and varied shopping at Otay Ranch Town Center.

Otay Ranch jumped four spots into the top 10 in John Burns Real Estate Consulting’s 2019 rankings because of 7 percent sales growth in 2019.
