Plans for a new housing development in Rancho Mission Viejo are still on track.
RMV officials announced in a June 29 news release that escrow had officially closed on land for the new Village of Rienda.
“Closing escrow is a very important and exciting step forward in the development of the Village of Rienda at Rancho Mission Viejo,” said Paul Johnson, executive vice president of community development for Rancho Mission Viejo, in the news release. “We are looking forward to all that’s to come over the course of the next year, and know that homebuyers will be blown away by the community lifestyle we’ve created.”
Rienda is still scheduled to open in spring 2022. The first phase is planned to include 671 homes in seven neighborhoods.
Rienda residents can expect to enjoy amenities common at The Ranch, including fitness classes, happy hours, and other gatherings and events.
Four neighborhood builders—Lennar, Meritage Homes, PulteGroup and Tri Pointe Homes—will be involved in bringing Rienda to life.
“With its unmatched location, variety of amenities and spectacular natural surroundings, Rienda at Rancho Mission Viejo is a one-of-a kind community and a perfect fit for Pulte Homes,” said Chris Edgar, PulteGroup’s division president for Southern California. “We are thrilled to offer our innovative home designs that give buyers the ability to create personalized spaces to fit their everyday living and entertainment needs.”
