Location: Bethel Island, CA

Delta Coves is a master-planned luxury waterfront custom-home community in the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta area. The plan features 310 acres on Bethel Island, California, situated in the San Francisco Bay Area's growing Contra Costa County. It will offer 494 waterfront residential lots and 66 condominiums built around a man-made lagoon destined to provide residents with easy access to the fast waters of the Delta - as well as all points east and then west to the San Francisco Bay.

Additional amenities and features include 416 private docks paired with waterside homes; a 130-acre marina with 230 visitor/lease slips; premier single-family homes and condominiums; and five-minute access to fast water and various water-oriented activities and adventures. Delta Coves residents will find a host of community and recreational facilities including walking and biking paths, a fitness center and pool, and parks with picnic pavilions and spaces for special events and family outings.

SunCal directed the extensive excavations, grading and engineering to create the navigable waterway that provides boating access to the River Delta; the marina basin was dredged to 21 feet below mean sea level. The company also worked with various government agencies to breach a Delta levee, a complex engineering feat that created a 160-foot-wide access channel between the new marina and the Delta. Prior to constructing a new 4.5-mile levee, topsoil was removed and the sandy soil beneath the levee footprint was strengthened through compaction to provide a strong foundation.
