Pardee Breaks Ground on 4,400-Home MPC in Banning

Pardee Homes Inland Empire launched development on Atwell, the first master-planned community to rise in Banning, CA in more than two decades. The Riverside County project, located roughly 80 miles east of Los Angeles and 25 miles northwest of Palm Springs, will span 1,528 acres and is slated for more than 4,400 single-family homes across roughly 40 neighborhoods.

Pardee Homes’ Mike Taylor says, “As demand for housing in the Inland Empire remains strong, this is the right timing to begin phase one of Atwell.” Phase one of development consists of 480 home sites, two commercial retail pads and one K-6 school site.

The architecture for the homes is in its preliminary stages, with various elevations anticipated, including Craftsman, Spanish and Italian, with square footage expected to range from 1,800 to 2,600 square feet. Model homes are anticipated to open in January 2020, with first occupancies slated for May 2020.
