energy efficiency

 

It has been a busy year for us here at Shea Homes® Arizona. We opened four new communities: the modern gated community of 24 North in North Phoenix, the beautiful Carino Villas condominiums in Chandler, the luxurious Vantage condos in Ahwatukee, and the Shea 3D community Ambition at Eastmark in Mesa.

And while it’s always exciting to open new communities, the most rewarding part of this business in helping families select, build, and ultimately move into their dream homes.

So after all this activity in 2016, will we be slowing the pace in 2017? Not a chance! In the coming year, we will be opening more Shea Homes communities to meet continued demand, and welcoming even more happy homeowners to the Shea family. Here’s a peek at some of our upcoming activity.

The Reserves – Gilbert
The Reserves at Val Vista
In spring 2017, we will open the doors to our luxury gated Gilbert development, The Reserves. Here, we plan to offer 383 four single-story, distinctive floor plans, measuring approximately 3,282 – 3,982 square feet.

by Shea Homes Arizona on December 9, 2016

 

If you haven’t yet visited our newest Shea Homes® community, 24 North, you are in for a treat. This modern gated community in North Phoenix is ideally located near the I-17 (Flagstaff ski trip, anyone?), schools, shopping and restaurants, as well as extensive trails in the nearby Phoenix Sonoran Desert Preserve. Plus, private yards make it easy to enjoy Arizona living – especially since the HOA maintains front yards.

We’d like to invite you to come tour our six beautiful models (three furnished, three unfurnished) and see what modern luxury living looks like. You’ll find us located at 31534 N. 24th Drive, Phoenix, AZ 85085 (adjacent to the Sonoran Foothills masterplan) Here are the three home plans you will have to choose from:

24 North – 1001 Altair Plan
Altair PlanWalk into this fabulous two-story, 2,025 square-foot, single family home and you’ll feel at home immediately upon arrival. The home’s spacious kitchen is open to a grand dining room and a cozy living space. This configuration is great for both entertaining and every day family life. Storage abounds with a two-car garage and full laundry room plus a master suite with doors leading to a stunning bathroom and walk-in closet. And you can choose a floorplan with three spacious bedrooms plus a loft, or the four bedroom option.

5 Thoughtful Things We Do to Reduce Sound From Condo to Condo

by Shea Homes Arizona on October 21, 2016

 

Before planning the construction of our Shea Homes® condos here in Arizona, our leadership team toured west coast condo communities and met with construction professionals to understand any challenges and how-to best approach building a condo community buyers will want to be a part of. One of the biggest challenges noted during these tours and industry discussions, surrounded noise reduction.

While we can’t guarantee you will hear absolutely no sound, from condo to condo, we can say we’ve worked hard to significantly reduce it.

Starting with soft-close technology.

  1. SOFT-CLOSE TECHNOLOGY

Soft-Close TechnologyEvery kitchen and bathroom cabinet is equipped with soft-close technology, which keeps cabinet doors and drawers from slamming. This significantly reduces the chances anyone will hear doors slamming or drawers closing.

We have some exciting news to share. After months of behind the scenes work, we’re happy to let you know that Shea Homes® has finalized the purchase of 75.3 acres in Gilbert at the southwest corner of Ray Road and Recker Road. And while plans are still preliminary, we intend to break ground on the project next month and expect to build three new communities. So what can you expect? Homes will range in size from approximately 1,723 -3,351 square feet, and a variety of exterior and interior designs will be available, including both one and two-story homes, and the popular Shea3D YourPlan options.

For those of you looking to move sooner, we have you covered. The Reserves, a new, gated community is coming to Gilbert in 2017, and we also have quick move-in homes and new build options available at Marbella Vineyards, and one remaining quick move-in home at Elements at The Bridges.
