Arizona-based real estate investment and development company Harvard Investments announced Gehan Homes as its newest builder for Mesa master-planned community Cadence at Gateway. Gehan Homes is consistently recognized for exceptional design and quality, with awards that include the 2017 Houzz Customer Service Award, 2010 Texas Association of Builders STAR Award for Volume Builder of the Year, 2013 PRISM Award for Best Product Design and five 2016 STAR Awards.
“It’s great to welcome Gehan to the Cadence community,” said Craig Krumwiede, president of Harvard Investments. “Gehan has a flawless, well-established reputation in Texas and its recent expansion into Arizona brings with it the same level of beautiful design, personalized features and attention to detail that set them apart.”
The Gehan Homes neighborhood will include one- and two-story family homes with lot sizes of 53 feet by 125 feet and six floor plans, each with a range of options including welcoming front porches and open floor plans as their signature architecture.
“Our front porches naturally complement the community layout and culture, and fit perfectly with the tree-lined streets, short blocks and separated sidewalks that encourage neighborhood conversations and connections. Many homebuyers remember this style of living from growing up—and are eager to recreate it in quality communities with fresh amenities,” said Mark Moskal, division president, Gehan. “The open floor plans create a variety of formal and informal spaces that cater to Gehan families’ active lifestyles.”
In addition to being the first Cadence builder offering front porches, Gehan Homes also include energy-saving features that work together to reduce energy consumption. These features are included at no additional cost, meaning homeowners don’t have to choose between performance & affordability.
Moskal added, “This neighborhood will feature our most popular floor plans, is within a great school district and offers easy access to major employers in the East Valley.”
Gehan Homes is currently ranked the 12th largest private builder in the U.S. with a solid reputation for building the highest quality homes for over 25 years. The Texas builder has been in the Arizona market for five years.
“This beautiful Gehan Homes neighborhood will be just steps away from every amenity we offer at The Square including ‘Chute,’ our resort-style pools featuring two slides, the Residents’ Community Center, a terrific fitness center, plus numerous parks, and miles of walking and biking trails,” Krumwiede said. “Their reputation for quality reinforces the Cadence at Gateway vision of maintaining the highest standards for a master planned community anywhere.”
