Homebuilders Lennar Corp. and CalAtlantic Group have merged in a $9.3 billion deal in which Lennar acquired CalAtlantic. The merger means even more options for individuals and families looking to be part of the highly anticipated Cadence at Gateway master-planned community, soon to open at Ellsworth and Ray Roads in East Mesa. Now those looking for Cadence homes have four different Lennar neighborhoods to choose from with today’s highly sought floor plans, incredible amenities and a low monthly HOA of around $125.

“This combination increases our homes we offer to entry level, move-up and active-adult customers,” said Lennar CEO Stuart Miller in a Phoenix Business Journal article. “As a result, the combined company will have a top 3 ranking in 24 of the top 30 markets in the country.”

The four Lennar neighborhoods, Harmony, Melody, Discovery and Destiny, offer a wide variety of options for buyers in every stage of life, with 207 lots sized from 43 x 125 to 6.3 x 125. Multiple home designs with versatile floor plans are available with square footage ranging from 1,650 to 2,900 square feet.

Harmony and Melody

  • Prime location, next to the amenity-rich heart of the community— The Square
  • Three to four bedrooms, 2.5 to 4.5 baths
  • Variety of elevations
  • Open floor plans, indoor/outdoor designs
  • Single and two-story floor plans

At Discovery and Destiny, two of Lennar’s hugely successful “NextGen – the Home Within a Home” plans are available. Lennar has earned national acclaim for creating a series of homes that can easily accommodate three generations living under one roof.

The private NextGen suites include a bedroom, living room, kitchenette, bathroom, and laundry yet is under the same roof as the main part of the home. The unique space can also be easily used for an adult child with special needs, teen room, home office, guest or nanny’s quarters or a man cave.

Discovery and Destiny at Cadence

  • NextGen – the Home Within a Home plans
  • Single and two-story homes are available in Discovery’s Liberty NextGen model
  • Three car garages are offered in Destiny’s Oracle NextGen, Evolution NextGen and Aurora models
  • Three to four bedrooms, 3 to 3.5 baths

“We’ve seen how the NextGen homes have encouraged multiple generations of families to live together, sharing life and expenses. It’s been a winner not only for Lennar but more importantly for the families,” said Alan Jones, Lennar Arizona Division President.

The builders plan to maintain their unwavering commitment to outstanding quality and true customer service, building on the reputation that earned CalAtlantic the Builder of the Year title in 2016.

All homes at Cadence are within 300 feet of a park, a trail, or the amenity-rich Square.  The focus on indoor/outdoor living is a key part of the community. The Square includes tennis and bocce ball courts, fitness center, resort-style pools, a community center, visitors center, meeting rooms and more with spaces designed for fun, fitness, and business—both indoors and out.

Cadence at Gateway is ideally situated in the East Valley at Ray and Pecos roads, by the Loop 202 Santan Freeway and the new State Route 24. There’s easy access to the rest of the Phoenix area.

“We see this location as the future growth area of Mesa and the southeast Valley and we are excited to be a part of this beautiful new community,” said Alan Jones, Lennar Arizona Division President.
