If you have not prequalified, you are encouraged to visit and take this important step for a rare opportunity to own one of these luxurious new homes within the Historic Colony District. Act now and be among the first to get in on early phase offerings and take advantage of early pricing opportunities. You simply don't want to miss out on this incredible home buying opportunity.

Interest is high for this final chance to live in Colony Park and homebuyers are expressing their enthusiasm by visiting The Welcome House, where they can get a special inside look at Cortile and Casita's floorplans and see what makes the amenity-rich community of Colony Park so desirable.

Colony Park is the coveted place to live in the NEW Anaheim, and these two final neighborhoods take the promise of this special area up a notch. Cortile and Casita each present distinctive exteriors and well-planned interiors together with a distinctive blend of historical significance and modern amenities. Homebuyers also appreciate that Colony Park has no Mello-Roos, low tax rates, low HOA dues and eco-smart features that reduce utilities bills by 25%-40% compared to neighboring cities.

Cortile at Colony Park will introduce a wonderful selection of charming, new two-story townhomes and flats ranging from approximately 730 to 1,682 square feet, with one- to three bedrooms, 1.5 to 2.5 baths and up to two-car garages with direct access. With prices anticipated from the mid $300,000s, six thoughtful floorplans will accommodate a range of lifestyles, from singles and couples to roommates and growing families.

The larger of the community's final two new neighborhoods, Casita at Colony Park will present open, smart designs that reveal generous spaces. Offering a series of detached and paired homes that reflect the architectural influence of row townhomes, floorplans will range from approximately 1,411 to 1,931 square feet with three to four bedrooms to accommodate every family member, 2.5 baths, two-car garages and private outdoor spaces that will afford residents a setting for barbecues, pets and quiet relaxation. Prices are anticipated from the mid $400,000s.

"The moment we have all been waiting for is here. It's time for the release of the first phase of residences at Cortile and Casita, and we cannot be more thrilled," said Rocky Tracy, Vice President of Sales for Brookfield Residential. "The buildup to this event has been tremendous with excitement from homebuyers who want to take advantage of this final chance to call Colony Park home. We encourage anyone who is interested in living here to visit and begin the prequalification process today."

Living at Colony Park offers homeowners all the advantages of modern living plus plenty of amenities at their fingertips. The community's location in the Historic Colony District puts numerous shops and restaurants within walking distance and provides easy access to "Colony Park," the central park that is the home of Anaheim's newest Art in Public Places. The park is also a child's dream, with multiple play areas including an interactive watercourse. Paying tribute to the City's arts and civic programs plus serving a desire to renew the downtown's historic center, Colony Park presents a unique amenity that is an homage to local history and a boon to the city's revitalization efforts.

Colony Park has four private recreation centers. Compass Park and Pavilion is the ultimate spot for summertime enjoyment, with a resort-style salt water pool, soaring palm trees, a covered outdoor pavilion with barbecues, and a greenbelt park invite fun in the sun with friends, family, and neighbors.

The Pool House, Colony Park's second private recreation center offers resort-inspired amenities including a walk-in saltwater pool and Jacuzzi, outdoor fire pits, bar, barbecues and plentiful seating for casual gatherings. The Pool House club room is the ideal spot for relaxing with neighbors to watch the big game. Or, you can rent out the lounge for your own private party. In addition, The Pool House has an onsite community manager who plans events throughout the year, giving homeowners even more outlets for enjoying their surroundings and the company of friends and neighbors. The third recreational amenity at Colony Park, The Cabana, opening this fall, will feature a salt water pool, barbecues, and fitness center. The fourth and final private amenity will be Colony Bark, the dog park that will open in early 2014.

Colony Park is the latest innovation to come to Anaheim, where a long history of achievements has transformed the city again and again. Most recently known as the premier international destination for fun and entertainment, Anaheim has been guided by civic leaders and partners like Brookfield Homes to evolve with changing times. The NEW Anaheim is perhaps the best incarnation yet, and one that includes a new thriving art community that encompasses The Packing District, The Muzeo, and Center Street Promenade.

The Packing District is a short walk from Casita and Cortile, allowing residents the fortunate opportunity to enjoy this unique gathering place for food, drinks and music. Located at 400 S Anaheim Blvd, Anaheim, The Packing District includes the Packard Showroom, Farmers Park and the future revitalized Anaheim Packing House. Built in 1919, the restored Packing House will serve as a culinary center that brings together artisan food producers and purveyors in a public market type setting. The Packard Showroom houses Anaheim Brewery and Umami Burger now open. The recently opened Farmers Park, an outdoor marketplace hosts an array of community activities such as outdoor concerts, movies, and seasonal festivals.

At the heart of all this excitement, growth, and progress is Colony Park, which has contributed significantly to creating the framework for the desirable and walkable NEW Anaheim, fostering a strong sense of city pride with a connection to the past, and hope for the future. A central location creates access to all the best of Orange County, three major freeways, and nearby work centers and shopping opportunities. Nearby restaurants satisfy every craving, from casual meals to fine dining while encompassing tastes from every continent. For entertainment, few cities in the nation can compare to what Anaheim has to offer. Everything from Disneyland to Angel Stadium to Discovery Science Center to Knott's Berry Farm to Honda Center is within close range. Numerous parks, including Citrus Park, Little Peoples Park, and Walnut Grove Park are also nearby.
