A thoughtfully designed, mixed-use community set on the stunningly beautiful Monterey Bay coastline.
Just nine miles north of Monterey and about 30 miles south of Santa Cruz, the City of Marina is a fast-growing coastal town bordered by rolling dunes along Monterey Bay.
Today, award-winning builder, Shea Homes, is transforming a large parcel of land formerly used by Fort Ord into a spectacular live-work-play community.
Built adjacent to the sprawling California State University, Monterey Bay campus, The Dunes consists of the established 400,000 sq. ft. Marina regional shopping center, neighborhood retail and restaurants, an existing multi-screen movie theater, parks and recreational spaces, hotels, office and commercial space, schools, healthcare services, cobblestone bike trails and walking paths leading to hiking at Fort Ord National Monument, murals and other community artwork, and more — in addition to a growing number of upscale homes and other residential options.
