May 5, 2021 - Gehan Homes, the nation’s 25th largest homebuilder, announced today the acquisition of 61 acres in Broomfield, CO. The purchase is announced on the heels of Gehan Homes’ acquisition of Wonderland Homes in February. The transaction demonstrates the company’s commitment to aggressive expansion in the Colorado market. The parcel is located at the southeast corner of 144th (Dillon Road) and Aspen Street, in a prime location in the center of Broomfield.
The 311 planned homesites will feature a broad range of homes, inspired by existing Wonderland floor plans. The community will be marketed as Dillon Pointe. Offerings will include ranch and two-story homes, single-family and townhomes and a section of unique 3-story townhomes with rooftop decks. The diversity in housing types and price points will appeal to a broad variety of buyers, from families, who wish to reside in the acclaimed Boulder Valley School District, to seniors looking for a low-maintenance lifestyle, to first-time buyers.
“This landmark investment, along with our acquisition of Wonderland Homes 1,000 lots along the Colorado Front Range, demonstrates our aggressive expansion goals and commitment to the Colorado market” said John Winniford, President and CEO of Gehan Homes. “This parcel offers a prime location in a submarket with a high level of desirability and low available inventory. We are looking forward to diversifying our geographic and product mix across Denver.”
The community will offer residents opportunities to connect with premium parks and open space amenities, as well as interconnected trails. The neighborhood will be built in a manner that is economically and environmentally sustainable, with Energy Smart features and design incorporated into every home that reduce energy and water consumption. There will be a walkable neighborhood commercial corner and the much-needed additional housing options allow those who work in the city of Broomfield, the opportunity to live closer.
