Lyon Living Development Company is a recently formed entity of Lyon Living and NCA Developments. The privately held company, led by Peter D. Zak, continues the successful pursuits of Lyon Living in the areas of entitlement, ground-up development, and construction with an increased focus on mixed-use projects, especially those with multi-family, retail, and hotel components.


Lyon Living has specialized teams responsible for pre-development entitlement and construction activities for all types of multi-family and mixed-use ground-up development projects. Our expertise spans all stages of the real estate development cycle including:

  • Identifying Strategic Acquisition and Entitlement Opportunities
  • Leading Due Diligence and Pre-Design
  • Processing of Entitlements
  • Finalizing Design and Construction Documents
  • Coordinating through Completion of Construction and Lease-Up

We work closely with the city, neighborhood leaders, non-profits and other stakeholders to ensure all projects become assets to the community and surrounding neighborhoods. Our extensive knowledge in innovative design, construction, and material selection ensures our design will be efficient and cost effective to construct, while maintaining the highest levels of quality.


For over 20 years, Lyon Living has served as its own General Contractor for new construction and is currently building more than 2,000 units in California. This in-house approach has enabled our team to execute thoughtful, smart designs that are aligned with Lyon’s vision of building exceptional living environments. We pride ourselves on building responsibly by providing the highest level of onsite training and safety protocols, as well as minimizing environmental impacts through eco-friendly standards.


We specialize in constructing mid/high rise, wrap, mixed use, and podium apartment communities, and manage the entire lifecycle of many of our new projects through the following stages:

  • Pre-Construction
  • Project Estimating
  • Contracts and Bid Documents
  • Onsite Construction
  • Project Engineering
  • Project Management
  • Construction Management

Our construction management team also oversees third-party general contractors for certain developments. Seamless teamwork and clear communication are critical to the success of any project, and we work hard to create long-term partnerships with all of our vendors and contractors.
