Revel Lodi’s 5.7-acre site is nestled within Reynolds Ranch in the heart of Lodi, California, adjacent to the region’s lush vineyards, as well as exceptional dining, retail and entertainment venues. The project’s wraparound driveway carves out an expansive central oasis in which all homes are sheltered from the noise and activity of surrounding roads. A stately porte-cochere welcomes residents and guests, ushering them into the two-story, resort-style clubhouse. This centerpiece of the community connects two asymmetrical three- and four-story residential wings served by elevators. Inside you’ll find an array of flexible dining options — from full pub and restaurant service, to private dining rooms and take-home options — featuring made-from-scratch, seasonal menus. Physical and social health is further supported with a cutting-edge fitness center prioritizing cardio, strength training and group experiences. An indoor, saltwater heated pool offers panoramic verdant views of the community s manicured gardens, putting green and dog park. A full-service salon, art studio, theater, library, inviting living room and private event spaces promote an active, engaged lifestyle. Craftsman-style architecture and village-like building massing create a pastoral, yet sophisticated, environment, full of rich, high-quality detailing. At the rear of the site, eight charming single-story duplex cottages offer ease of access and additional privacy. The architectural vocabulary creates a sensory-rich experience with a variety of gable forms, muted colors and material textures. Apartments and cottages feature private patios, walk-in closets, plank flooring and designer finishes and fixtures, maintaining the same high standard of living as the community spaces. At a time of life when quality matters most, this community delivers.
