Tri Pointe Homes Opens 251-Unit Townhome Community in Phoenix Metro

The Towns at Annecy delivers to one of the nation’s fastest growing metro areas quality, flexible homes at an attainable price in an inviting, walkable community

SCOTTSDALE, ARIZ. Tri Pointe Homes, a recognized leader serving the Phoenix market for over 25 years under the name Maracay, has announced its third new community opening in the metro area this year. The Towns at Annecy, located in Gilbert, Arizona, offers 251 townhome sites.

Customers are encouraged to join the priority list to schedule a private tour of the four model homes. There is also a suite of interactive tools available online for those who prefer to shop from the comfort of home.

“The Towns at Annecy offers homebuyers so many connections, from the carefully crafted floor plans and flexible living space options to the quality amenites and convenient, walkable appeal,” said Tri Pointe Homes Division President James Attwood. “We’re very excited to bring new premium product to such a highly desirable submarket as Gilbert, which ranked No. 1 nationally last year for Millennial homebuying1 and in the top 20 for job opportunity.2 This young year has already been packed with great excitement, from our rebranding to the new communities we’ve introduced to the Phoenix metro, and the momentum continues to build with The Towns at Annecy.”

Located just 30 minutes east of downtown Phoenix, The Towns at Annecy offers 251 new townhomes in Spanish and Italianate architecture. Starting from the high-$200,000s, all attached townhomes are two-story, with four different floor plans ranging from 1,194 square feet to 1,921 square feet, and customizable Flex Design layouts consisting of two to three bedrooms, 2 to 2.5 bathrooms and two-bay garages. Set serenely amidst multiple lakes and water features and connected by lighted walking paths, The Towns at Annecy offers residents a pool, playground, basketball court, park and greenbelt.

The Towns at Annecy is situated in the highly-rated Gilbert Public School District and close to ample shopping and dining. It offers quick access to the Loop 202 SanTan Freeway and is less than six miles from the Phoenix–Mesa Gateway Airport. Only 10 minutes away, the 272-acre Gilbert Regional Park offers a rich array of recreational opportunities, as do the famous Superstition Mountains to the east.

As part of LivingSmart®, a program committed to healthy and environmentally responsible business practices, the homes at The Towns at Annecy will be designed and independently certified to exceed local energy codes, with Tri Pointe Homes being the only LEED Certified production builder in the Valley. The homes will also be enhanced with money saving, energy-efficient features throughout. Each home will also include features from Tri Pointe Homes’ HomeSmart® program that provides the comfort, security and Wi-Fi connectivity residents need to control many of their home features. 

In 2014, Maracay merged with five other distinctive regional homebuilding brands to form TRI Pointe Group®, one of the largest homebuilders in the nation. On January 15, 2021, Maracay and the other regional brands united under the Tri Pointe Homes brand, a single company that brings the best of big and small to all its homebuyers across a range of products and price segments. The rebranded company debuted its first two new residential communities last month in the Phoenix metro, The Preserve at Sedella and Cadence at Gateway, which have experienced strong interest, steady appointments and multiple sales.

“The name may be new, but local homebuyers will see the same high-quality people behind the brand, delivering our hallmark, high-level service based on elevated customer experience and innovative product and design,” said Attwood. “It’s people who make a house a home. We will never lose sight of that, working every day to help homebuyers find their perfect living space in a thriving, well-built community. It’s more than a homebuilding business, it’s a life-changing business, and after 25 years in this market we’re still passionately committed to uplifting customers, team members and the communities we serve.” 

Detached and semi-detached condominiums at The Lakes at Annecy, Tri Pointe Homes’ other residential offering in the master-planned community, are also available for purchase. For more information, please visit
