Multifamily Vista Tulocay should accommodate a good portion of residential demand.

NAPA, CA—For every 1,000 new residents, only 200 building permits are approved each year, making Napa in desperate need of infill housing. Relief is on the way in the form of development, Vista Tulocay, which should accommodate a good portion of residential demand, at least for the near term.

The planned development of phase I of the 500-unit multifamily community is expected to fill a deep void in this city’s housing market, according to developer BLT Enterprises.

BLT Enterprises plans to begin development on this phase immediately.
