Meritage Homes of Arizona (Jeff Grobstein, President Desert Region) purchased approximately 150 acres for $2,526,480 ($57,420 per lot) for a new, gated community in Oro Valley. Located within one of Tucson’s most prestigious areas, Sanctuary at Silverhawke will feature 44 new, energy-efficient homes on large homesites, coming in 2017.

The new community is located southeast of Palisades and First Avenue in Oro Valley and will be a cluster project with development around a floodplain and Environmentally Sensitive Land (ESL) requirements for the property.

Meritage hopes to break ground in December on this new gated community with plans to build 3,000-4,000 square-feet semi-custom homes for sale by July 2017.
