Trumark Homes is taking over a 70-home subdivision project in eastern Concord that was entitled by Catalyst Development Partners.

The company acquired the 3.36-acre site, 3512 Clayton Road, from an LLC affiliated with Catalyst in May for $9.7 million and applied for building permits in August, public records show.

Tony Bosowski, president of Trumark’s Northern California division, said in an email that the company plans to begin construction in January and begin sales next spring.

Catalyst President Todd Deutscher confirmed Catalyst is no longer involved in the project.

Danville-based Catalyst proposed the townhome community, called Penny Lane, in late 2018. The Planning Commission approved it in February 2020, but it was appealed by a longtime Concord resident, according to city documents. The Concord City Council denied the appeal 3-2 in April 2020 despite opposition to the project’s density by a roster of neighbors.
