It is a phrase that hasn’t been spoken in Sun City for years.
But this fall, the words, “brand-new homes for sale” will be on the lips of Realtors, homebuyers and residents as the community welcomes its first new residential development in decades — and the last addition the active retirement enclave begun by Del Webb in 1960 will see.
K. Hovnanian will build the Four Seasons at the Manor, a 140-unit, all single-family home project on a 27.5-acre parcel off Del Webb Boulevard and Sunland Avenue. The undeveloped pocket of property has withstood years of attempts at building.
Hovnanian, a nationwide builder that is launching its initial active-adult project in the Phoenix market, plans to begin selling the first units starting around Oct. 1, according to Andy Pedersen, vice president of marketing and merchandising for Hovnanian’s California and Arizona region.
