Hundreds of new houses going up in Rohnert Park's University District development

Another 100 houses are under construction this summer. Near the homes, a public park recently opened, complete with a baseball diamond and turf for soccer games.

Ryan, an alumnus of Santa Rosa’s Montgomery High School and a member of Green Music Center’s board of directors, estimated the project will take at least five more years to complete, longer if the economy slows.

University District is of a scale rarely seen in the county.

The development’s plans include 1,236 single-family homes, more than 200 “affordable” apartment units and 100,000 square feet of commercial space. That puts it somewhere between the 500-home Skyhawk subdivision in east Santa Rosa and the 1,500-acre Fountaingrove residential and business community in the northeast part of the city.

Of note, Rohnert Park has two more substantial housing developments yet to be built, making it the center of future residential development in the county. Mary Grace Pawson, the city’s director of development services, cited the 475-unit Southeast Specific Plan development along Valley House Drive, where first-phase grading work has begun, and nearly 1,900 more units approved at nearby SOMO Village, a former Agilent Technologies manufacturing facility.
