Five home builders have been selected for the final nine intergenerational residential neighborhoods now under construction at Esencia, the mixed-use, hillside village in the 14,000-home Rancho Mission Viejo community.

The nine neighborhoods, known collectively as the NorthWalk Neighborhoods, will include 752 attached and detached homes. Named for their location at the northern-most point of Esencia, the new neighborhoods will offer back country panoramas and walkable pathways linking neighborhoods to a new 5.5-acre linear park.

The home builders selected for the third collection of neighborhoods at Esencia include CalAtlantic Homes, Meritage Homes, Pulte Homes, William Lyon Homes, and The New Home Company.

“We are very pleased to announce the neighborhood builder team for what will be the final collection of residential neighborhoods at Esencia,” said Rancho Mission Viejo, LLC President and Chief Operating Officer Don Vodra. “Known as The NorthWalk Neighborhoods, this collection of nine neighborhoods will include 752 attached and detached homes, with many showcasing our new California Progressive architectural design and featuring interiors ranging from 700 to nearly 4,500 square feet. The neighborhoods are slated to begin debuting in phased increments this fall. Plus, construction has already begun on the exciting offering of ‘all-age’ social and recreational amenities planned for The NorthWalk Neighborhoods, with each designed to appeal to a broad array of homebuyers including on-the-go millennials.”
