Brookfield Residential (Arizona) has confirmed that Shea Homes and Landsea Homes have joined its roster of builders for phase one of its highly anticipated Alamar master-planned community in Avondale, Arizona.
Shea and Landsea Homes are the first of several builders that Brookfield plans to partner with for the first phase, which includes 461 homesites developed within 6 distinct neighborhoods, slated to open in second half of 2020. Shea Homes will build 82 homes, spread out among two parcels, while Landsea Homes will build 75 homes, also spread out among two parcels.
“Both Shea and Landsea Homes represent premier quality builders that homebuyers can expect to see at Alamar,” said Brad Chelton, Senior Vice President, Brookfield Residential Arizona. “We plan to offer a number of premium features, including high-quality homes and unique lifestyle amenities that will establish Alamar as a leading community in the West Valley.”
Alamar is located just north of the Sierra Estrella Mountains at Avondale Boulevard and Broadway Boulevard, on a 1,130-acre site formerly owned and farmed by the Lakin family. It represents the first large master-planned community to be developed in the Valley since Eastmark launched in 2013 and is entitled for up to 3,695 single family homes.
Alamar will feature four distinct architectural styles of homes, including Craftsman/Bungalow, Spanish Colonial, Territorial Ranch and Traditional Southwest, providing a rich variety of architecture to promote individual character among the homes and add to the community’s overall street scene.
Brookfield has been working closely with The City of Avondale to align the master-planned community with the city’s desire to celebrate the natural beauty of the Sierra Estrella Mountains and provide a framework for community health and wellness. The focus on health and wellness will be realized through the design of family-friendly and multi-generational neighborhoods that are carefully crafted with an abundance of parks, trails and open space. Each of the community amenities will encourage social engagement and place a premium on the opportunities to connect back to nature.
A 41-acre regional park, built in partnership with the City of Avondale, will serve as the central hub of the community, while numerous parks, landscape features and custom artwork throughout the development will connect and engage residents through multi-use green spaces and pay tribute to the heritage of the property in creative and contemporary ways.
“Our commitment to the community has been crystalized in the overall orchestration of every aspect of Alamar’s framework, including the roadway system, hierarchy of neighborhood enclaves, theming and branding designs, landscape improvements and the full spectrum of parks,” said John Bradley, President Brookfield Residential Arizona.
Plans for mixed-use elements include the donation of a 21-acre elementary school site to Avondale’s Littleton Elementary School District, where Brookfield will partner with the school district to deliver best-in-class K-8 level education.
Brookfield Residential is a development partner of Eastmark in Mesa, AZ (in conjunction with DMB Associates Inc.), Harvest at Queen Creek in Queen Creek AZ and Trilogy at Verde River, Rio Verde, AZ (in conjunction with TerraWest Communities LLC) and San Tan Ridge, North Pinal County.
