The country’s largest homebuilder, Lennar Homes, broke ground this week at Heritage at Asante, a gated, active adult community in Surprise. This new development is part of a much larger community near 163rd Avenue and Grand.  

Heritage at Asante will feature 1500 homes with three different series of homes from the low 200’s. The gated community includes a recreation/fitness center, pickleball and bocce courts, resort pool, nine hole putting course, dog park with lush trail systems throughout.

“We are very excited about growing our presence in the West Valley with a product that is unlike any other,” said Alan Jones, Division President of Lennar Homes. “Lennar is committed to continuing to innovate and develop unique communities that meet the changing needs of homeowners.” 

Over the next few years, Lennar will continue to develop the area by introducing several different housing products that will offer solutions for every buyer. It may be the only place in the United States that within the same development, there will be homes for first-time buyers, second-time buyers, large garage RV/boat homes, a 55+ active adult community and next-gen housing. Lennar created next-gen homes specifically for this multigenerational living concept. Each community includes all the extras, including wi-fi connectivity and green building efficiencies saving homeowners money and helping protect the environment at the same time. 

Asante will also feature a school, library and 50-acre park. This burgeoning development is truly a complete family destination with homes and amenities that offer something for everyone.

Celebrating the military history of the property, Lennar made a $10,000 donation to the Pat Tillman Foundation at the event, honoring those serving our community. This parcel of land was used by Luke Air Force Base pilots to practice touch and go landings during the Korean War. Its military heritage is strengthened in our partnership with the Pat Tillman Foundation and the naming of the main entryway into our subdivision Pat Tillman Boulevard, after Arizona’s fallen hero.

Today’s groundbreaking is just the beginning of several key communities coming up in the West Valley over the next few years, creating hundreds of new construction jobs, courtesy of Lennar Homes.
