Colony Park by Brookfield Residential in the NEW Anaheim. Now is a

step for a rare opportunity to own one of these luxurious new homes
at Colony Park within the Historic Colony District.  
Colony Park is the coveted place to live in the NEW Anaheim, and
these two final neighborhoods further prove why. Cortile and Casita
each present distinctive exteriors and well-planned interiors
together with a unique and enviable combination of historical
significance and future-forward amenities. Homebuyers also appreciate
that Colony Park has no Mello-Roos, low tax rates, low HOA dues and
eco-smart features that reduce utilities bills by 25%-40% compared to
neighboring cities. 
Cortile at Colony Park will introduce a wonderful selection of
charming, new two-story townhomes and flats that will range from
approximately 730 to 1,682 square feet, with one- to three bedrooms,
1.5 to 2.5 baths and up to two-car garages with direct access. With
prices anticipated from the mid $300,000s, six thoughtful floorplans
will accommodate a range of lifestyles, from singles and couples to
roommates and growing families.  
The larger of community's final two new neighborhoods, Casita at
Colony Park will present open, smart designs that reveal generous
spaces. Offering a series of detached and paired homes that reflect
the architectural influence of row townhomes, floorplans will range
from approximately 1,411 to 1,931 square feet with three to four
bedrooms to accommodate every family member, 2.5 baths, two-car
garages and private outdoor spaces that will afford residents a
setting for barbecues, pets and quiet relaxation. Prices are
anticipated from the mid $400,000s. 
"The highly anticipated opening of our Welcome House is here, and we
know homebuyers are going to be thrilled to experience Cortile and
Casita for the first time," said Rocky Tracy, Vice President of Sales
for Brookfield Residential. "Colony Park in the NEW Anaheim is a fan
favorite among those who are already fortunate enough to live here.
These two neighborhoods were designed to meet the needs of a wide
range of homebuyers while offering these final two new home
opportunities to take advantage of all that this amazing community
has to offer." 
Living at Colony Park allows homeowners to enjoy all the advantages
of modern living plus plenty of amenities at their fingertips. The
community's location in the Historic Colony District puts residents
within walking distance of numerous shops and restaurants, along with
access to "Colony Park," the central park that is the home of
Anaheim's newest Art in Public Places. The park offers multiple areas
for children's play, including an interactive watercourse. Paying
tribute to the City's arts and civic programs and serving a desire to
renew the downtown's historic center, Colony Park presents a unique
amenity that is homage to local history and a boon to the city's
revitalization efforts.  
Colony Park has four private recreation centers including, Compass
Park and Pavilion, the ultimate spot for summertime enjoyment. A
resort-style salt water pool, soaring palm trees, a covered outdoor
pavilion with barbecues, and a greenbelt park invite fun in the sun
with friends, family, and neighbors. 
The Pool House offers residents of Colony Park a second private
recreation center complete with resort-inspired amenities, including
indoor and outdoor areas for play or relaxation. A walk-in saltwater
pool and Jacuzzi, outdoor fire pits, bar, barbecues and plentiful
seating invite casual gatherings. The Pool House club room is the
spot for relaxing with neighbors to watch the big game. Or, you can
rent out the lounge for your own private party. In addition, The Pool
House has an onsite community manager who plans events throughout the
year, giving homeowners even more outlets for enjoying their
surroundings and the company of friends and neighbors. The third
recreational amenity at Colony Park, The Cabana, opening this fall,
will feature a salt water pool, barbecues, and fitness center. The
fourth and final private amenity will be Colony Bark, the dog park
that will open in early 2014.  
Colony Park is the latest in a long line of significant achievements
and historical turning points for the city of Anaheim. A legacy of
entrepreneurial spirit and old-fashioned hard work has continually
transformed the city dating back to the 1800s. Most recently known as
an international destination for fun and entertainment, Anaheim has
been guided by civic leaders and partners like Brookfield Homes to
evolve with changing times. The NEW Anaheim includes a new thriving
art community that encompasses The Packing District, The Muzeo and
Center Street Promenade. 
Cortile and Casita residents are also fortunate to be within walking
distance of the Anaheim Packing District. Located at 400 S Anaheim
Blvd, Anaheim, this unique gathering place for local food, drinks and
music, includes the Packard Showroom, Farmers Park, and the future
revitalized Anaheim Packing House. Built in 1919, the restored
Packing House will serve as a culinary center that brings together
artisan food producers and purveyors in a public market type setting.
The Packard Showroom houses Anaheim Brewery and Umami Burger now
open. Farmers Park, an outdoor marketplace, which is scheduled to
grand open on June 29th, will host an array of community activities
such as outdoor concerts, movies, and seasonal festivals. For
additional information on upcoming events and festivities at the
Anaheim Packing District, visit www.Anaheimpackingdistrict.com.  
Colony Park has contributed significantly to creating the framework
for the desirable and walkable NEW Anaheim, fostering a strong sense
of city pride with a connection to the past, and hope for the future.
A central location creates access to all of Orange County, three
major freeways, and nearby work centers and shopping opportunities.
Nearby restaurants satisfy every craving, from casual meals to fine
dining while encompassing tastes from every continent. For
entertainment, few cities in the nation can compare to Anaheim's
multitude of options. Everything from Disneyland to Angel Stadium to
Discovery Science Center to Knott's Berry Farm to Honda Center is
within close range. Numerous parks, including Citrus Park, Little
Peoples Park, and Walnut Grove Park are also nearby.  
To reach Colony Park from the 5 Freeway, exit Lincoln Avenue and head
east. Turn right on Olive Street and follow the signs to the Welcome
House. The Welcome House is open Friday-Monday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
