The first of many major marks that Canada's biggest builder plans to
make in Arizona
SCOTTSDALE, AZ, June 26, 2013 /CNW/ - Mattamy Homes, a leading North
American land development and homebuilding firm, has opened the doors
at its newest community in Arizona: Eastmark in Mesa, a new 3,200-acre DMB Associates community that promises to be one of
the most thoughtfully planned, innovative in the country.
The grand opening of Eastmark took place on the first weekend in June,
with thousands of people checking out the hotly anticipated
development. Mattamy, which is a relative newcomer to the local
homebuilding scene, has experienced great success at Eastmark in the
early going: sales on opening weekend and in the weeks since have led
all builders in the community and represent a solid start to the
company's biggest project so far in the Phoenix area.
"The Eastmark opening was a great success for Mattamy," says Steve
Sasso, President of Mattamy's Arizona Division. "We've outsold in the
community, which we feel is impressive since homebuyers are still
getting to know us. Our product has truly distinctive architectural
designs that have gone over very well with our guests. We may be
unknown, but we've been successful and are really just getting
Mattamy is bringing exclusive, unique and brand-new architectural
designs to Eastmark - all based on extensive customer research about
what local homeowners want and need in their home. In its first phase,
Mattamy has 163 homes for sale:
Homes in Sable Garden range from 1,511 to 2,734 square feet. Homes in
Lincoln Square range from 2,105 to 3,185 square feet.
A variety of single-level and two-story floorplans and elevations are
Mattamy has targeted its new homes at Eastmark with a starting price in
the low $200s, to households looking for their first new single-family
home or those seeking to move up to a larger home.
Eastmark promises to be a truly distinctive community in the Mesa area.
At completion, there will be a public 106-acre park at the center for
biking and strolling, and a visitor and community center that will be a
hub for activities. Eastmark is close to three freeways and the
Phoenix-Mesa Gateway Airport. Residents will have access to one of the
best school districts in Arizona: Queen Creek Unified School District.
In addition, Eastmark will be home to the world-class charter school,
BASIS Mesa at Eastmark, opening in August 2013.
"Mattamy's approach at Eastmark has been to offer prices that are in
keeping with the market, recognizing that while underlying economic
conditions are getting better in the Phoenix Metro area, consumers are
still cautious and are considering their new home purchases carefully,"
A declining unemployment rate in the Phoenix area is fueling demand for
housing, which, coupled with a declining supply of homes for sale, is
beginning to describe an improving and attractive market. "We see the
demographic projections making this one of the strongest markets in the
US, in regards to employment and population growth," says Laura Di
Paolo, Mattamy's Vice President, Corporate Marketing & Strategic Market
Planning. "Our Eastmark investment, which currently consists of 163
homes and will likely be expanded within the next year through
additional investment, as well as several other major projects we're
undertaking, will provide Mattamy with the inventory that's needed to
handle the demand we feel is going to occur as the market continues to
Mattamy is embarking on a significant and exciting growth plan in
Arizona. The company has made more than $40 million in land purchases
over the past year and will be bringing new communities (representing
nearly 1,000 additional homes) on line in Goodyear, Mesa, Peoria,
Phoenix and Surprise within the next year.
