Harvard Investments, a real estate investment and development company based in Scottsdale, Ariz., is proud to announce plans for its Verde Trails master planned community. Verde Trails is a 310-acre planned community located in Avondale, Ariz. Harvard worked with Kernit Rankin of Rankin Real Estate, LLC on the acquisition of the land. The community includes residential and commercial parcels, themed parks, and an extensive trail system. Harvard expects to break ground on its first neighborhoods in early 2019.
“We’re very excited about Verde Trails and the opportunity to build an exceptional master-planned community in Avondale,” said Tim Brislin, Vice President of Harvard Investments. “The location is ideal. It’s close to a variety of employment, retail and recreation choices. It has great connectivity with I-10 to the north, the South Mountain Loop 202 under construction to the east, and the planned State Route 30 just to the south of Verde Trails. The heart of Verde is a tremendous assortment of parks interconnected with off-street trails. We’re assembling a best-in-class builder group to offer wonderful home choices for individuals, couples and families.”
The community initially includes approximately 847 homes on a variety of lot sizes, surrounded by themed parks. The central amenity is a 4.7-acre park with a large event lawn, sport courts, junior soccer field, picnic ramada and BBQ area, large covered playground, walking trails and easy parking on all sides of the park for residents.
“A series of parks – each a little different than the other – are located among the neighborhoods and close to each of our future residents,” added Brislin. “The parks are interconnected through a network of trails that allow residents to walk, bike, or run through Verde Trails. Additionally, there is a regional, multi-use trail that will accommodate horseback riding.”
Verde Trails expands to 350 acres and over 1,000 home sites with the addition of the neighboring Verde Trails II property that is currently in planning.
Harvard Investments is the master developer for Verde Trails, and established the overall vision and regulatory framework for the community.
