Gallery Casa Grande Construction Permits
November 10, 2014
“Look not at the monthly starts, look at what is under construction!”
Let’s start with DR Horton’s least-attractive site Desert Sky, on the west side of town.
SURPRISE!!!!! 9 starts currently under construction. Don’t know if they are sold or not.
Now look at Cottonwood Ranch:
Apparently they are building a new model complex on the northernmost lots, across from an elementary school.
And here is Tamaron, probably the most upscale of the three subdivisions:
Over at Meritage’s Mission Royale, they are apparently going nuts:
One would hope they are starting a product to compete with Robson Ranch’s Lock and Leave.

Seniors Deal: DOA
Yet another proposed development optimized for Seniors … has been killed by overzealous politicians masquerading as council members pretending to be engineers.
