Tri Pointe Homes Starts Construction On Sentinel At Oro Ridge

The homebuilder returns to a hot and highly ranked housing market in the East Valley with a range of fresh new home offerings and design options.

Tri Pointe Homes®, a recognized leader serving the Phoenix market for more than 30 years under the name Maracay®, has announced the groundbreaking for Sentinel at Oro Ridge, a 52-home neighborhood located within the expansive Oro Ridge planned community in Queen Creek, Arizona. 

“We are very excited about Sentinel at Oro Ridge for many reasons, from the premium designs and beautiful natural surroundings to the market and demographic trends favoring the East Valley,” said Tri Pointe Homes Arizona’s Division President James Attwood. “Customers know quality when they see it — life-changing design in a high opportunity market from a company that has brought innovation and value to the Valley for more than three decades.” 

Available in Spanish, Farmhouse and Desert exterior styles, Sentinel at Oro Ridge homes will range from approximately 2,665 to 3,124 square feet with 4 to 5 bedrooms, 2.5 to 3 baths and 3-bay garages. All three unique floor plans at Sentinel at Oro Ridge — Lowell, Pearce and Cholla — will feature single-story homes on homesites that average approximately 8,400 square feet. Depending on plan, customers will be able to personalize flex spaces such as offices, game rooms, and outdoor living areas. Some additional options include an extended primary suite, an executive kitchen with extended island, an extended covered outdoor living area, and fifth bedroom or GenSmart Suite®, which is perfect for families with college-aged kids, live-in family members, or frequent out-of-town guests.

Tri Pointe Homes achieves high-performing homes with cost and environmental savings through the LivingSmart® program, which spans design and development to construction and the ongoing operation of a home. New materials, technologies and features are constantly being incorporated into the program, which consists of HealthSmart®, EnergySmart®, EarthSmart®, WaterSmart® and HomeSmart®. Equipped with energy-efficient technology, all homes at Sentinel at Oro Ridge will also be LEED Certified® and Energy Star® certified.

The Oro Ridge planned community includes a trail system, playgrounds, and pocket parks. Residents will be close to the popular shopping and dining in downtown Queen Creek and have direct access to the Phoenix–Mesa Gateway Airport and the Loop 202 SanTan Freeway. The freeway, via the soon-to-be completed State Route 24, offers easy connections to East Valley commercial and entertainment centers such as Schnepf Farms. The 10,000-acre San Tan Regional Park just minutes away offers an abundance of recreational opportunities, as do the famous Superstition Mountains to the east.  

“Fresh air and possibilities have taken on a new importance in the past few years, which is a major reason why Sentinel at Oro Ridge, nestled at the foothills of the San Tan Mountain Range and offering an abundance of outdoor amenities and close proximity to job centers, schools, shopping and other attractions, will be a big draw for a wide range of buyers,” Attwood said.

Sentinel at Oro Ridge is located at 33580 N. Maverick Mountain Trail, with a grand opening slated for Fall 2022. For more information and to join the interest list, please visit
