Builders have committed to purchasing all 43 homesites, with David Weekley Homes buying 38 and Evans Coghill Homes LLC purchasing the remaining five. Development of the phase is expected to be complete in October, and home construction will start before the end of this year.
"Homes have been selling swiftly in Springfield, and there is a notable increase in demand," said James Martin, Crescent vice president. "Builders such as David Weekley Homes and Evans Coghill are creating desirable homes in a location that is unmatched in the greater Charlotte area, and buyers are responding."
Springfield amenities include an 18-hole daily-fee golf course and a five-acre park called Orchard Park that features an activities center, three swimming pools, six tennis courts, a playground and pavilion. The 2,300-acre Anne Close Springs Greenway is adjacent to Springfield, and a trail leads from the community to the Springs Farm Market next door.
Rob Gislason, division president of David Weekley Homes in Charlotte, said his company plans to offer a variety of home designs in Springfield, with several flexible options. David Weekley floor plans will range from 2,800 to more than 4,000 square feet.
Evans Coghill Homes, one of Springfield's original guild builders, plans to offer multigenerational home plans with guaranteed energy efficiency, according to Evans Coghill co-owner Alan Banks. Evans Coghill's homes feature four to five bedrooms and range from 3,000 to 3,900 square feet.
Springfield has sold 17 homes so far this year, averaging more than three homes sold per month.
