Sonoran Gate: Model Homes Near Sonoran Preserve Open this Weekend

Taylor Morrison will unveil seven model homes in a new North Phoenix neighborhood, Sonoran Gate, when it opens to the public Saturday, Oct. 28.

The 255-home community sits on a secluded 80-acre site surrounded by State Trust Land and sandwiched between two sections of the untouched beauty of the Sonoran Desert Preserve, just east of Sonoran Foothills. Plans call for a gated community with an 1,800-square-foot community ramada, play structures with shade, a splash pad and walking paths. [Related: The Story of Sonoran Gate’s Land]

“Sonoran Gate offers a prime location in the High Sonoran Desert so residents can enjoy the beauty and serenity of the area with close access to major causeways for a convenient commute to area employment hubs,” said Todd Hahn, vice president of sales and marketing for Taylor Morrison’s Phoenix division.
