As a leading home builder, we offer a suite of services and direction to plan, design, and complete new construction of every style. We selectively work with a small number of clients to ensure the La Placa standard is not compromised in any project. The La Placa standard encompasses thousands of seen, and unseen details that only come with a tenure of over 30 years.
Within our three decades of building some of the finest homes in Southern California, we’ve honed our craftsmanship to be able to deliver our clients only the best time-tested homes; while simultaneously perfecting our foresight to avoid overtures on time and budget.
A custom build is a significant undertaking. At La Placa Development, we walk homeowners through the entire process. We offer input on design, opportunities on finishes, and advocate for you as we budget. Behind the scenes, we pour over the details, selecting the finest materials while carefully managing the team of expert builders and craftsmen who give a La Placa Development custom home its signature quality.
Our goal is to ease pressure on our clients and protect their investment while delivering the very best custom luxury homes in Southern California.
At La Placa Development, we come to work every day because we know what we build is not something we take for granted. Our story is simple. Our company began with a single builder, pursuing top-quality craftsmanship and customer care. Thirty-five years later, that history lives on while growing and staying grounded in our founding family values.
La Placa Development is a family name. In 1973, Gaetano La Placa Development immigrated from Italy to the United States. In the early years, he swept floors, painted, and assisted on construction sites. Over the years, Gaetano acquired expert skills and knowledge as a craftsman, designer, and project manager. In 1984, Gaetano founded La Placa Development and transformed his expertise into a full-service firm. Located in Monrovia, California, La Placa Development earned a reputation for integrity, knowledge, and high-quality custom builds. We incorporated in 1999, and the company continued to grow.
In 2014, we followed our demand, and moved the La Placa Development office to Orange County. Today, La Placa Development is a full-service, family-run general contractor. Gaetano remains hands on in each project, assisted by his sons Giovanni and Francis. Gaetano’s wife Sheri supports internal operations and is supported by a full time staff.
My family member had La placa construction build her custom home. I have to say, the craftsmanship and mastery of their work is truly stunning. I visited the job with her throughout the building process and the whole team is so friendly. Very great company.Kim Davis

The La Placa family was so helpful and informative from the start. They immediately treated me as one of the family and that is something I highly valued.Sam Hillman
