PCD, which is a member of the Los Angeles/Ventura Building Industry Association (BIA) and the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB), takes pride in building smart and sustainable projects. We deliver the highest level of craftsmanship, providing quality construction and attention to design on all projects.


We provide expertise in the following areas:


In July 2015, my wife and I purchased a beautiful, newly built home in Santa Monica, California. Pacific Cove Development built the home, a Southern California based developer of homes and commercial buildings. The President of the company is Steve Lappin. The overall construction and finish of our home was excellent and the attention to detail on almost every item was thoughtful in both design and construction. In addition, Pacific Cove Development provided us a professionally bound book of all materials, specifications and vendors that were used during the construction of the home so that we could use it as a reference should it ever be needed. Steve made himself available to us personally when we purchased the house to ensure we were happy with all details and when items needed attention, he would ensure they were properly addressed and that were were happy. Having worked in commercial real estate myself for 26 years, I know that even in new build projects of any asset class, things need fixing or replacement. That was certainly the case with our new home, although infrequently. When it did happen however, I was particularly impressed with the professionalism that Steve Lappin and his team extended to us whenever we had items that came up that needed attention. Steve would always relentlessly and personally follow up. Now after more than three years and although under no obligation to do so, Steve Lappin and his staff (in particular Chris Dara) still take my calls and provide help whenever needed. We love our home in Santa Monica and are very happy with our purchase. We would purchase another home built by Pacific Cove Development.

PCD built my home from the ground up and exhibited the highest level of professionalism and attention to detail. They don't take short cuts and they are honest as the day is long... and that's what matters when building a house! They demand perfection from their subcontractors and they won't finish their contracts with subs until they - and most importantly, YOU - are completely satisfied. Lastly, Steve and team will not consider a project complete until every last detail has been addressed and every objective has been met.

Steve was wonderful to deal with from my first tour of the property as a prospective buyer, to his continued interest in making sure I love my home.

We came in from the desert every week to look around & could not find anything to our expectations . To make a long story short we found the finest building that I lived in for the last 30 years. It doesn't stop there. This place is like the Rock of Gibraltar. It's LEED GOLD certified.

Steve continues to remain a reassuring and available resource to us and to the community. The qualities I most associate with Steve are integrity, quality, attention to detail and an obvious and genuine interest in people. Steve's demeanor, honesty and timeliness are absolutely above reproach.

I live in the best space I have ever inhabited and that has been many. The quality of the design and construction, the green element throughout, the attention to detail, the superb customer service and follow up all have contributed to a wonderful experience.

| Sheridan B. – Homeowner |  

I have had the pleasure of working with Pacific Cove Development on a number of projects. In each instance I have been impressed with their commitment to customer service, timeliness, accountability, and the attention to design detail they brought to each project.

The process of buying a house is stressful enough, but to know that it will take another 6 months to rehabilitate, before getting to live in it, takes stress to another level all together. You and your sister’s entire team made the process smooth and took away many of the worries throughout the process.

| Christopher F. – Client |  

Pacific Cove Development offers an honest and mutually beneficial approach to building, respecting the client/builder/designer relationship and professionally delivering high quality projects. PCD is a pleasure to work with.

From the moment I toured my new home to this day my experience has been one of complete satisfaction with the bonus being, my home is wonderful.
