Family Development Homes Town Surprise Ribbon Cutting

Town Surprise, Family Development’s newest and most innovative luxury lease community located in the heart of Surprise, Arizona, recently hosted a ribbon-cutting ceremony for the opening of its leasing office attended by dozens of potential renters, brokers, and local civic leaders — despite scorching summer temperatures topping 115 degrees. In addition to enjoying complimentary lite bites and refreshments, guests had the opportunity to tour the development’s two and three-bedroom model townhomes, each of which features unique design elements and expansive, private spaces for families of diverse backgrounds and experiences.

Located on the north side of Elm Street between Civic Center Drive and Litchfield Road, this exciting new community by Family Development consists of 114 townhomes, each with its own two-car attached garage, access to a large community pool & spa, barbecue area and dog parks, plus proximity to nearby services, dining, retail, medical and entertainment amenities. Nineteen leases were inked on the leasing office’s first full day open — a testament to Town Surprise’s broad appeal and innovation, as well as an indicator that availability will likely continue to dwindle throughout the summer.

“Given the time of year and the heatwave gripping the Southwest, we were cautiously optimistic in terms of predicting the turnout for the opening of the leasing office,” remarked Family Development Co-Principal Vincent Barbato. “We were honored to have Mayor Hall and other city leaders join us, as well as dozens of community members and business leaders to help us celebrate this important milestone. Ultimately, Town Surprise offers renters a lifestyle not found anywhere else in Arizona and we’re pleasantly surprised by the high level of interest.”
