With model homes starting to pop up after a first round of lot sales, Anthem United is looking ahead to future phases of the Winding Creek development in west Roseville.
“We’ve tried to take that to the next level,” he said. “Hopefully as the community develops it will have an influence.”
North of where Blue Oaks Boulevard meets Westbrook Boulevard, Winding Creek is planned to have 2,000 single-family homes at buildout on 500 acres.
Chambers said the project, originally called Creekview, is centered around the natural feature of Pleasant Grove Creek by designing trails and open space around it.
After completing off-site infrastructure and grading work on the project’s southernmost portion, Anthem United sold 280 lots there late last year to three different builders.
According to public records, Anthem sold 74 lots to Meritage Homes for $8.65 million, 120 lots to DR Horton and its landholding entity Forestar USA for a combined $12.5 million, and 86 lots to K. Hovnanian for $9.64 million.
Messages left with the homebuilding companies were not returned this week.
“All three have experience in west Roseville,” Chambers said. “We knew folks at that company and knew they would perform.”
Last fall, even before a single lot sold, Anthem United had an interest list for Winding Creek of more than 1,300, according to the company.
Up next, Anthem United is working on infrastructure for another 264 lots, which should be ready for a builder to take over this fall. Then infrastructure work begins to cross Pleasant Grove Creek and deliver land for more lots in 2022.
Further on the horizon is a planned commercial center of 9.26 acres on Blue Oaks Boulevard, with both retail and office uses.
Chambers said given the typical pattern of such centers following a certain number of rooftops first, it’s safe to say the center is probably a few years away. The center is also being designed to be pedestrian friendly with its own open space elements, he added.
