2017: Another Great Year at Estrella

Like a good book you never want to end, each chapter of 2017 for Estrella was chock-full of milestones and memories in our master-planned community. As this year comes to a close, we wanted to take a look back at the incredible year we’ve had.

With miles of trails, acres of lakes, and numerous community events, Estrella residents truly lived life in every direction. In addition to celebrating our local businesses, residents also experienced the arts with the Goodyear Lakeside Music Fest, Ballet Under the Stars, art exhibits in Presidio, and even revved their engines as they cruised to the lakes at the first annual car show. Estrella had something for everyone, and we look forward to what is in store as we watch how this community continues to grow.

Speaking of growth, in 2017 Estrella closed on its 5,000th home! With the help of our eight distinct homebuilders – that offer a wide variety of floor plans – more than 15,000 residents have chosen to call this place home.

As the managing developer of Estrella, Newland is continuously working to grow and improve this vibrant community, and we were very excited to welcome two new William Ryan Homes neighborhoods: Tranquility and Cordoba as well as Mirador by Terrata Homes in Montecito this year. As we head into 2018, we are intently focused on moving two major projects forward, Lucero and Phase Three of Montecito, which together encompass more than 1,400 acres. We are excited to begin the development of these projects, and ensure they reflect the high quality and sharp attention to detail that residents have come to expect in Estrella. In the coming months, we will have more exciting news to share with you, including new homebuilders and neighborhoods so stay tuned!

Our community enjoyed robust home sales in 2017 and landed us at #29 in the top 50 in the country for master-planned community sales. Estrella was again recognized by Arizona Foothills as a Best Place to Live, CantaMia was named one of the Best Places to Retire in Arizona by Where to Retire Magazine, and the Golf Club of Estrella was recognized as one of the Best Golf Courses in Arizona by Phoenix New Times.

Newland Communities would like to thank each and every person within Estrella who helped make this incredible community a great place to call home. As we head into the 13th year as the managing developer of Estrella, we wish you and yours a wonderful holiday season, and cheers to the exciting future 2018 holds!
