OXNARD, CA--(Marketwired - Oct 7, 2015) -  K. Hovnanian Companies of California (KHOV) has broken ground on Veranda at RiverPark, a 95-home community that will be one of the last neighborhoods to complete Oxnard's master-planned RiverPark subdivision. In a land banking transaction, Presidio Residential Capital funded this project on behalf of KHOV. The retail value of this project will exceed $48 million.

Model home construction will begin in January 2016, and homes will be available for sale in March 2016.

"We are pleased to close our first project with KHOV," said Don Faye, co-principal at Presidio Residential. "We believe that this project will be well received in the Ventura County market."

Located just five miles from the coast, Veranda at RiverPark is within walking distance of The Collection, a 600,000-square-foot open-air specialty center located in the heart of the RiverPark community that offers national retail stores (including Whole Foods, Target and REI) as well as movie theaters and restaurants. RiverPark is also home to two new school sites, 14 parks -- including a pocket park located within Veranda at RiverPark -- and an extensive system of open space that accounts for more than one-third of the community's 700 acres of land. 

"This is a refreshing new community and concept for Oxnard," said Jared Knickmeyer, land acquisition manager for K. Hovnanian Companies. "The community of RiverPark is already well established, and K. Hovnanian is excited to come in as one of the last two neighborhoods to complete the master plan."

The single-family detached homes on 4,600-square-foot lots will have large private backyards, two-car garages and second-floor loft spaces. Homebuyers can select optional folding sliders to create an indoor/outdoor floorplan that takes advantage of the continual ocean breezes through Veranda at RiverPark. High-end finishes include granite countertops, optional stainless steel appliance packages and cabinet upgrades.

Prices will range from the high $400,000s to the low $500,000s.

RSF Partners was the seller. The Hoffman Company was the broker.

According to the National Association of Home Builders' formula to determine the local impact of single-family housing in typical metro areas, adding 95 single-family homes will generate $27.2 million in local income, $3.4 million in taxes and other revenue for local governments and 374 local jobs.
