The Collective to radically transform the paradigm for 55+ communities by rooting every element in wellness including the first WELL-Certified Clubhouse

SAN RAMON, Calif. — Trumark Communities, a national award-winning master planned development division of California development company Trumark Companies, announced November 19 that it has commenced construction on The Collective, the country’s first age-qualified community devoted to wellness. Located in Manteca, California, The Collective features 478 detached homes and a 10,000-square-foot community clubhouse registered to achieve WELL Certification by the International WELL Building Institute™. The gated community marks the first community within Trumark Communities’ recently launched TruLiving division, dedicated to redefining the age-qualified residential sector.

Committed to improving health and human environments through design, the WELL Building Standard® by the International WELL Building Institute™ partners with communities to benefit health and well-being by aligning with the seven concepts of the WELL Building Standard – air, water, nourishment, light, fitness, comfort and mind.

“We recognized an incredible opportunity to create a new, disruptive community that would break the mold for the age-qualified housing market,” said Mike Maples, co-founder and principal of Trumark. “Focusing on what we call the ‘unAQ’ and engaging our audience, The Collective will represent an innovative place where residents can live ageless, diverse, healthy lives. There is yet to be anything like this future TruLiving community in the surrounding market, and we anticipate strong interest from homebuyers once sales launch next year.”

Situated on over 120 acres, The Collective will include six distinct neighborhoods. Phase one, consisting of the first three neighborhoods, will be built by Trumark Homes, Taylor Morrison and Anthem United. The community will feature a 10,000-square-foot WELL Certified clubhouse, called The Campus, featuring a pool, coffee and wine bar, demonstration kitchen, expansive fitness center, game room and more. The fitness center will offer a variety of health and wellness enrichment programs.
