Montebello Collection City Ventures

The Montebello Collection

California home builder City Ventures not only develops affordable homes, but makes them all eco-friendly — for the same price as the average “standard” home.

With a home base in San Francisco and Irvine, California, City Ventures’ mission is to reposition underutilized real estate into residential housing in supply constrained coastal urban infill areas. At present, the developer owns and controls over 14,000 lots throughout California.

City Ventures “Green Key” homes are among the most energy-efficient new homes on the market. And its Green Key technologies come standard with all of its homes. The developer believes that homeowners shouldn’t have to pay more to use less energy.

Advanced energy efficient appliances that reduce both environmental impact and utility costs, advanced airflow systems for cleaner air, and use of only non-toxic materials are just some of the ways that City Ventures is working to make homes greener.

Communities are carefully designed to put homeowners closer to the things they love, ensuring that will drive less. City Ventures also provides pedestrian-friendly walkways to major neighborhood resources.

Green Key homes come with high-efficiency lighting, which could reduce energy costs by as much as 15 percent. Solar heat and high solar reflective index roofing materials harness the energy of the hot California sun.

Additional Green Key options include all solar powered homes, and a “balanced power” home, that uses both solar and natural gas energies to create the most energy-efficient home possible.

Some of City Ventures’ developments are the Montebello Collection in Montebello, Station House in Oakland, South City Garden and South City Place in South San Francisco, and Solera Ranch in Morgan Hill — which only has a handful of townhomes left for sale.
