October 10, 2018 – Landsea Homes today announced another strategic expansion with the purchase of land in Ontario, the homebuilder’s first community in San Bernardino County, CA. The company has developed homes in New York, New Jersey, and throughout California in Silicon Valley, Los Angeles and Orange County.
“Landsea Homes’ focus is to build diversified communities with the highest standards that ultimately benefit residents and bring a new sense of vibrancy to the area,” said Tom Baine, president, southern California division, Landsea Homes. “The City of Ontario is a desirable place to live because of its people, and it’s a natural hub for industry and commerce. The property’s location within mixed-used urban lifestyle districts positions it well for new construction and we’re very excited about the possibilities it provides.”
The new community is slated to include 432 homes within four communities surrounded by several family-oriented amenities including a community pool, dog park, tot lot and expansive open space for gatherings. Land development is expected to begin in early 2019, and open for sale mid 2020.
Located between Archibald and Merrill Avenues, the parcel of approximately 85 acres in Ontario is centrally located near employers, restaurants and entertainment destinations including Ontario Mills, a shopping center boasting over 200 stores, and Victoria Gardens, an upscale retail destination featuring boutiques, fine dining and the cinema.
With three major railroads, the San Bernardino, Pomona and Devore Freeways, and the Ontario International Airport, the city is well-provided with major transportation resources, and its proximity to Los Angeles ensures that Ontario will grow in the years ahead.
The property lies within the Ontario Ranch masterplan, a mixed-use area encompassing residential neighborhoods, commercial facilities and recreational amenities. The proposed plans feature retail and business space, along with nearly 1,000 acres dedicated to public open space, parks and schools. The convenient location offers commuters easy access to major employment centers in four surrounding counties, along with a growing number of job opportunities in Ontario and the Inland Empire.
