Share Article

For the first time in 3 years, a new master-planned community is coming out of the ground in the Southern California city of Carlsbad. In the planning stages for 12 years, The Foothills will open in the first quarter of 2010 with 3 neighborhoods of single family detached homes. Nearly half of the property at The Foothills will be preserved as permanent open space, providing a key connection to the habitat management program for the City of Carlsbad, California.

The Foothills is the beneficiary of many years of collaborative planning and design

For the first time since 2006, a new master planned community in Carlsbad is under way. Brookfield Homes' San Diego/Riverside division has started construction on The Foothills, with 400 new homes planned on 157 acres off Cannon Road, just east of El Camino Real and approximately three miles from the ocean.

With the grand opening of The Foothills slated for the first quarter of 2010, construction is now under way on a residents-only recreation center. Located at the heart of the Carlsbad master planned community, the 2.6-acre recreation center will feature a resort-style swimming pool, children's pool, picnic area with barbecues, paddle courts, grass playing areas and even a yoga exercise circle.

The first phase of new home construction at The Foothills also will include four neighborhoods of single family homes sized from approximately 1,700 to more than 3,000 square feet. New homes in Carlsbad at The Foothills are expected to be priced from approximately the low $500,000s to mid $700,000s. For more information, visit http://www.brookfieldsd.com. An information center is scheduled to open onsite in early 2010.

Along with recreation center and neighborhood construction, Brookfield Homes will build several neighborhood pocket parks and a trail system at The Foothills. Across the street from the community, Carlsbad Unified School District plans to break ground in 2010 on a new high school campus that would open in fall 2013. Future phases are expected to include a fourth single family new home neighborhood, a commercial office building and an RV storage facility. Another future amenity is a new 13.5-acre City of Carlsbad community park, planned as a lighted, multi-field soccer complex.

Nearly half of the property at The Foothills in Carlsbad will be preserved as permanent open space, providing a key connection to the habitat management program for the City.

"The Foothills is the beneficiary of many years of collaborative planning and design," said Lora Heramb, vice president of sales and marketing for the Del Mar-based homebuilder. "We are delivering a fully integrated new community with an assortment of housing styles, new schools, new parks and recreation facilities and a tremendous buffer of open space."

Brookfield San Diego Builders, Inc. builds new homes in San Diego and Riverside counties. Brookfield currently is building in the master-planned communities of Windingwalk in Chula Vista, The Estates at StoneBridge east of Scripps Ranch in San Diego, Old Creek Ranch in San Marcos and Morningstar Ranch in Winchester.
