Homes designed, sized, and priced for Davis-based employees and UC Davis faculty and staff

The Concept

A Community-Centered Housing neighborhood offers specific home designs, a variety of financing and real-life approach tailored to the amenity & financial capabilities of local employees. Based on its modest size, infill location, and site plan, Palomino Place presents Davis with an opportunity for a Community-Centered Housing Prototype.

The Ideal Prototype Neighborhood

It is a classic infill site with adjacent infrastructure along with existing homeowners who reasonably desire to protect their neighborhood and personal interests. Palomino Places’ design and layout have been thoughtfully conceived with a focus that is sensitive to adjacent homeowners’/neighbors’ expectations. Within each category of proposed Palomino Place homes are imaginative opportunities to assist purchasers and the City in achieving their housing goals beyond a typical land purchase. The size of the home is consciously formulated to meet the buyer’s financial capabilities with the cost to construct and ultimate sales price.


Palomino Place blends into the existing Wildhorse neighborhood. Complimentary designed homes will accommodate a wide range of family sizes and lifestyles, from first-time buyers to first and second move-up buyers.


Infill, by its very location, allows residents to walk, bike, or take public transit to get where they need to go.

Palomino Place is Located:

  • One mile from Harper Junior High School & Birch Lane Elementary School.
  • One mile to Nugget Grocery Store.
  • 1/2 mile to three popular parks.


Palomino Place provides land for a Pentathlon and Swim Complex which will be home to the Davis Fencing Academy.

Relieving existing City swim facilities from continued overuse.
