Shea Homes Arizona just closed escrow on 69 condominium units in WestStone’s Vantage Condominium community on the northwest corner of 5th Ave. and Chandler Blvd. in Ahwatukee.
Started by WestStone in 2007, only 58 condos were built before being put up for sale. Vantage is one of the last new condominium developments in Ahwatukee and offers unmatched amenities including two swimming pools and spa, a movie theater, fitness center, and clubhouse.
Traditionally a single family home builder, Shea Homes has recently been diversifying its portfolio and this will be the first time the Arizona division of Shea Homes will build condos. Shea is re-engineering the existing plans to reflect the quality it’s known for, including energy efficiency and supreme workmanship, as well as to bring the units up to current construction code standards.
The condos range from 1,432 to 2,067 square feet, offering both two and three bedroom options, with two baths and two-car garages. Model construction will start in the spring and the community is estimated to open in fall of 2015. Pricing is estimated to start in the high 200’s.
“We are always looking for great land opportunities which provide our customers with housing solutions and this community was one of those,” said Ken Peterson, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Shea Homes Arizona. “With its incredible views, amenities and being so close to great shopping, golfing, food and freeway access, we are really excited to get started.”
Vantage is walking distance from South Mountain Preserve, a 16,000- acre park with more than 58 trails for hiking, biking, and horseback riding.
