Master planned communities continue to be feasible throughout the United States. According to recent data obtained by New Mexico Business Weekly, there has been an 11 percent increase of homes sold since 2012, in the top 20 master planned communities in the country, respectively. Mesa del Sol’s sister community, Stapleton of Denver, made the list. Mesa del Sol’s growth is slowly making a comeback as the recession has had a significant impact on the Albuquerque market.
The topic of master planned communities will be in the spotlight with Mesa del Sol’s Director of Development, Manny Barrera, leading a talk at the Albuquerque Metro Current & Future Master Plan Communities event on October 23. In addition to Barrera, other speakers comprise, Garret Price, vice president of land development and acquisition at Pulte Homes in Albuquerque, and Jeanie Springer-Knight, developer at Springer5 Investments.
“I’m excited to share information about Mesa del Sol, learn from industry peers, and collaborate with community leaders and top developers in the area,” Barrera said.
In addition to Mesa del Sol, other master planned communities that will be included in the event comprise Westland North, Pulte Del Webb at Mirehaven, Unser Gateway, Satolina. The event will take place from 7:15 a.m. to 9:00 a.m. at the Albuquerque Marriott on Thursday, October 23. Registration information can be found here.
