Local dignitaries and business leaders this morning celebrated the start of one of the most significant developments in the West Valley in recent years.
The Surprise City Council gathered Oct. 30 near Cactus Road and Cotton Lane in Surprise for a groundbreaking ceremony for the Toll Brothers 780-acre master planned community.
The yet-unnamed neighborhood will feature a Jack Nicklaus-designed 18-hole golf course and up to 2,200 luxury home sites at final build-out.
The initial construction timeline will see the sales center and model homes completed by January 2020 with first occupancy in the fall that year and the phase 1 clubhouse and golf course grand opening slated for January 2021.
Including 367 home sites, the first phase will cost an estimated $51 million: $21 million for site development; $15 million for the model homes; and $15 million for the clubhouse.
Project developer Toll Brothers will serve as construction manager and general contractor with civil engineering by EPS Engineering and Design and landscape design by architect Greey Pickett.
PHX Architecture will design the clubhouse, guardhouse and pump house; KTGY Architecture + Planning, BSB Design, RFT Design and MSA Architecture + Design will design the homes.
