Taylor Builders Unveils Placer One Project

More than 2,200 acres for multi-use community including Sacramento State expansion

ROSEVILLE, Calif., Sept. 15, 2022 – Taylor Builders, leaders in the Sacramento region’s land development and real estate industry, today announced plans to break ground on a flagship project in Placer County, named Placer One, at the beginning of October. The 2,200-acre approved master plan community, previously known as Placer Ranch, is a unique partnership between the County, California State University, Sacramento, Sierra College and Taylor Builders.

With four major community entities joining forces, Placer One will be an anchor in the area, allowing one spot for the surrounding communities to gather with a myriad of exciting things to do. The synergy for this collaboration led to the rebranding of Placer One, a new name that reflects the overall vision of inclusion, togetherness and ingenuity. Positioned as a “one for all” destination—Placer One celebrates one common spirit, one center of innovation, all in one premiere location.

A major employment center, including a town center, university, expansive parks and natural open space will offer the community substantial internal connectivity to new large-scale job clusters, shopping, dining hubs and diverse residential neighborhoods via an extensive bikeway network. Placer One will provide high-quality services and amenities to support the future population that a new employment center and university will bring to South Placer.

“Placer One represents a major investment in our community,” said Clifton Taylor, president of Taylor Builders. “The project will not only offer a variety of home types, in addition to retail and commercial, but the cornerstone of the master plan will be a university which supports our vision of creating a place that promotes life-long learning for everyone.”

“This vibrant community will help shape the region and expand Placer County’s opportunities for education, quality of life and prosperity,” said Placer County Supervisor Robert Weygandt.

Placer One provides a balanced land use mix that will be a catalyst for the development of the entire Sunset area. The Specific Plan’s Campus Park Employment Center, which covers approximately 335 acres, will create an employment core that allows a diverse mix of job clusters. Additionally, Placer One’s 200-acre town center will be composed of retail establishments, office spaces and apartment/loft-style homes in proximity to daytime workforce and the university’s students and faculty.

At buildout, Placer One is planned to accommodate 5,636 residential units. These residential units will support an array of housing types, including single-family detached and multifamily attached units, along with exclusive areas for age-restricted neighborhoods and housing in a mixed-use environment within the town center. The first phase of development will consist of seven neighborhoods, with single-family detached lots ranging in size from 4,500 square feet to 9,500 square feet. Infrastructure for the first phase is scheduled for completion in late 2023.

Another major component of Placer One will be a new college campus which represents a collaboration between California State University, Sacramento, and Sierra College.  The 300-acre site will include the California State University system’s development of a Sacramento State off-campus center in Placer County along with an extension of Sierra College.

Placer One’s integrated living experiences will create lifestyle balance with art, community and edible gardens, parks, biking and walking tails and interactive areas that promote learning and growth. The community is committed to becoming a regional epicenter that combines educational and cultural enrichment, responsible, sustainable and innovative design with connectivity, inclusivity and personal growth opportunities.
