The upscale, walkable, master-planned community called Union Park at Norterra plans to open in December, with seven model homes, the developer Sunbelt Holdings announced Friday. Pricing and photos were revealed for the project, owned by the insurance and real estate conglomerate USAA and situated next to the company’s 3,800-employee campus along I-17 between Happy Valley and Jomax roads.
The project aims to evoke “the character and charm of neighborhoods past,” the developer says. Phase 1 includes 309 homes by three builders, each providing unique styles. The architecture—ranging from territorial to mission revival, Southwest modern to desert craftsman and even Wrightian (inspired by Frank Lloyd Wright)—indicates that Union Park will be notably different than the master-planned communities of Anthem, Fireside at Norterra or Sonoran Foothills.
Some model homes will open this month. “Our three decorated model homes will be open on Saturday, Nov. 17,” the builder Cachet Homes announced today.
