No let up in construction as Gold Hill Mesa adds Houston-based homebuilder
Houston-based David Weekley Homes, founded in 1976, recently signed on as one of three home builders at Gold Hill Mesa.
According to a press release, the company “is now selling its newest phase of 37 homesites” in the residential development east of 21st Street and south of Lower Gold Camp Road.
“We feel fortunate to have them,” said Stephanie Edwards, Gold Hill's lead officer on site, pointing out how Weekley has adapted its designs to fit the development's traditional neighborhood homes format.
Several of the lots Weekley has purchased are in Filings 9 and 10 of Gold Hill Mesa. It's in an area known as “the rim,” because it's at the top of what had been the tailings dam for the Golden Cycle gold mill 70-some years ago. Now the home sites there are known for their views.
Construction started at Gold Hill Mesa in 2006, and the 210-acre property now has more than 400 occupied homes.
The other builders at Gold Hill Mesa are Hi-Point Home Builders and JM Weston Homes, and all three are staying busy. “Construction is moving more rapidly than it ever has,” Edwards said.
Overall, the Gold Hill ownership foresees about 650 units at build-out.
