A residential subdivision with 40 lots for single-family homes is set to be developed on the former McLeod Ranch property in Hercules.

The Hercules City Council approved the subdivision on the vacant 7.44 acre site at 215 Skelly last month. Project approvals go into effect Thursday, at which point developer D.R. Horton will take possession of the site, according to the city.

The project will include 40 single-family residential lots ranging in size from just under 4,000 square feet to 6,880 square feet. It also includes seven separate parcels for private streets, emergency vehicle access roads, bioretention areas, open space, an existing cell tower, a pedestrian connection to Pinole Creek Trail and an EBMUD utility easement, the city said. As part of the project, about 76 trees, existing vegetation and existing structures will be removed.

The project includes one low income and one median-income inclusionary residence. Each home will have a two‐car garage and a driveway with room to park two additional vehicles, not to mention on-street parking.
