Viridian Kicks Off Large New Phase

Viridian Kicks Off Large New Phase

August 27, 2019

The Viridian community in Arlington is moving into its next phase of development which will include nearly 400 homes at a wide range of price points.

The 393 properties in the newest section of the Johnson Development community will have an array of home sites and floor plans similar to the range offered in other Viridian neighborhoods.

Prices will start from the $300,000s and go up to custom homes priced above $1 million.

Viridian’s development plan focuses on offering a variety of homes to suit a wide range of buyers’ budgets and tastes, said Debra Meers, director of Marketing.

“What makes us unique is we don’t segregate neighborhoods by the price of homes,” Meers said. “Instead, you’ll find a mix of homes with first-time homebuyers living down the street from million-dollar buyers. Our buyers have been very receptive to the concept.”

Most of Viridian’s current builder roster will be building in the new phase.

Those builders include CB Jeni Lifestyle Homes, CastleRock Communities, David Weekley Homes, Drees Custom Homes, Highland Homes, Normandy Homes, Plantation Homes and Toll Brothers. Custom builders include Glendarroch Homes, Struhs Homes and Windmiller Custom Homes.

Viridian is located along North Collins Street about halfway between Highway 183 and Interstate 30.

At build-out, the Arlington master-planned community will have a value of $2 billion to $2.5 billion.

Through early August, builders in Viridian had sold more than 220 new homes in the community. Meers said that sales of townhomes and single-family homes on properties that are 45-feet or less comprise 53 percent of this year’s home sales.

 

"While the lower-priced homes are selling, we’re also seeing sales of custom homes, as well,” she said. “And homes in our 55-plus community also are selling well.”

So far, more than 25 homes have sold in Elements at Viridian, the 55-plus active lifestyle community that opened their models this past spring.
