A mixed-use development consisting of several components, as further described in the project application: an affordable housing development; market rate housing; vocational training center; retail/commercial development on the southwest corner of the site near the Arnold Drive roundabout; a shared building that would house a child care/preschool and an adult day care facility; a continuing care residential community including independent living, assisted living and memory care; a hotel; and extensive open space including natural landscape features, bike and walking paths. The 66-acre project site is at the northeastern corner of the intersection of Arnold Drive and West Agua Caliente Road.

Approximately 750 acres of open space land will remain undeveloped and transferred to state and local parks and perhaps placed in trust for wildlife protection.
