With substantial infrastructure in place, model home construction has begun at Brookfield Communities newest and most unique development, “The Ridge at Fox Creek,” – a new addition to its existing master-planned community along the Colorado River and across from the historic gaming hub of Laughlin, Nev.

With building permits secured and major infrastructure – water, utilities and roads – finalized, construction on a new model home complex is now rising from the high desert ridge, the highest elevation and most view-friendly point in Fox Creek.

Brookfield Communities, a master-plan developer and large land holder, began taking homesite reservations at The Ridge earlier this year. There will be 48 homesites in the first phase, and home prices will start in the low $200,000s.

Homes and neighborhoods in The Ridge feature an expansive mix of architectural styles – from bungalows to mid-century to modern. Numerous designs and options are available for buyers. The character of each home in The Ridge will be diverse, as 11 exterior home styles and 11 floor-plans combine to offer more than 450 unique home choices.

Phil Petersen, founder and president of Brookfield Communities, says a record amount of visitors have visited the sales center at Fox Creek throughout 2014.

The Ridge at Fox Creek sits on a high ridge and is comprised of four separate ridgelines amidst a vast landscape featuring natural arroyos, unspoiled terrain and high desert vegetation.

Lush landscaping, an amphitheater, and “The Roost” – an exclusive community clubhouse will complete The Ridge. The Roost includes a bar area, a swimming pool and built-in recreation amenities for residents to enjoy.

Late this summer, construction began on Joshua Springs, a $17 million assisted living facility in the heart of Fox Creek. Other commercial development is also planned in the community.
