Shea Homes plans more than 300 new homes in Gilbert to meet demand

In recent years, the Town of Gilbert has been ranked among the country’s best places to raise a family (WalletHub, 2017), best places to live (Money Magazine, 2014), and best cities to be a homeowner (SmartAsset, 2017). And that’s just the short list. The area has also become a mecca for restaurants, with Joyride Taco House, Postino, Barrio Queen and Snooze all opening Gilbert locations. From aviation and defense to technology and bioscience, the PHX East Valley‘s dynamic economy is booming, with Banner Health, Dignity Health, Go Daddy and Walmart employing thousands, and Intel planning to invest $7 billion in a Chandler facility, creating an additional 3,000 jobs. 

“Gilbert’s economy is thriving,” said Gilbert Mayor Jenn Daniels, “With more families and individuals choosing to live and work in Gilbert, it’s critical to have the right mix of housing.”

Over the next few months, Shea Homes will be opening three communities in the new Recker Pointe development, located at the southwest corner of Ray and Recker Roads. When fully built, Ambition at Recker Pointe, Compass at Recker Pointe and Inspire at Recker Pointe will add more than 300 homes to the area. 

“Gilbert has been a strong market for Shea for some time,” said Ken Peterson, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Shea Homes Arizona. “Marbella Vineyards, which we opened in 2013 is nearly sold out. Our luxury gated community, The Reserves, debuted in May 2017, and this fall we are opening three new communities at Recker Pointe.”

On Saturday, October 7, Shea Homes will hold the grand opening of Ambition at Recker Pointe. Ambition is part of the Shea3D® series of homes, giving home buyers the opportunity to choose from a variety of interchangeable lifestyle-driven spaces. Four distinctive, single story and two-story open floor plans will be showcased in three  beautifully designed model homes. Floorplans range in size from approximately 1,710 to 2,991 square feet, with bedrooms ranging from 2-6 and bathrooms ranging from 2-3.5. Homes at Ambition are priced from the $310,000s. 

On Saturday, October 21, 2017 Shea Homes will unveil Inspire at Recker Pointe.  This community’s floorplans range in size from approximately 2,462 to 3,351 square feet, and provide spacious floor plans with options for 3 to 4 bedrooms and 2-3.5 bathrooms.  Inspire homes are priced from the $370,000s.

The third community, Compass at Recker Point, will be opening Saturday, November 11, 2017. Compass will offer 3 and 4 bedroom homes, each with 2.5 bathrooms.  These range in size from approximately 1,855 to 2,151 square feet and pricing is TBD.

Located at the southwest corner of Ray and Recker Roads in Gilbert, AZ, Recker Pointe is just a half mile from the San Tan/Loop 202 Freeway and ideally situated close to shopping, dining, recreation, and entertainment. Recker Pointe residents will enjoy amenities including a community pool, covered play structure, ramadas, picnic tables, barbecue grills, and more.
