San Diego, CA (PRWEB) December 20, 2011
At Origen at Civita in Mission Valley, Shea Homes San Diego has redefined the look and functionality of San Diego urban architecture. Selling 10 of 15 homes released this weekend, Shea has found an enthusiastic market for these striking three- and four-story loft-style townhomes.
Located at the corner of Friars Road and Mission Center Road in the heart of Mission Valley, Origen is the first new community to open at Civita, a 230-acre master planned community being developed as sustainable, transit-oriented village by Sudberry Properties.
“Consumer response to the architecture and vertical styling of Origen has been tremendous,” said Vanessa Linn, vice president of sales and marketing for Shea Homes San Diego. “But the common theme we’re hearing is the desire to be close to everything -- to the work centers in downtown and Mission Valley, as well as the cultural attractions of Balboa Park and the Gaslamp Quarter.”
Shea’s two new neighborhoods – Origen socialGarden and Origen skyLoft – showcase sleek vertical elements and multi-level, two-sided glass walls. Designed by Woodley Architectural Group, Origen socialGarden and skyLoft at Civita feature 10 floor plans modeled by creative teams from Design Line Interiors, Creative Design Consultants and Ami Samuel Interiors.
Origen socialGarden offers 127 courtyard style townhomes ranging from 1,390 to 2,110 square feet with two to three bedrooms, 2.5 to 3.5 baths and two-car garages. Origen socialGarden homes will be clustered around 12 beautifully landscaped courtyards and gardens. Five floor plans at socialGarden are priced from $411,900.
Classically urban, Origen skyLoft offers 73 loft style townhomes sized from 1,452 to 1,760 square feet with two to three bedrooms, 2.5 to 3.5 baths and two-car garages. Five floor plans at skyLoft are priced from the mid- to high $436,900.
Origen will also offer a private recreation area featuring a pool and spa.
The sales office and eight new model homes are open daily from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., except Mondays, when hours are 1 p.m. to 5 pm. Origen is located at 7894 Civita Blvd. near the intersection of Friars Road and Mission Center Road, just east of State Route 163.
