Almost 5 years after demolishing 5 office buildings in front of the AMD headquarters on Duane Road, Taylor Morrison (formerly known as Taylor Woodrow) has scrapped its plans for a 302 unit condo project and is now building a new 132 unit townhouse community. Called Duane Court, the new community offers townhouses specifically designed to cater to a fast growing niche of Asian buyers. Currently, the development is better recognized as the huge mountain of black dirt piled up high by the entrance to AMD and behind a Chevron gas station.
Covering the approximately 7.3 acre lot, Duane Court offers familiar townhouse floor plans with a bedroom and bathroom on the first floor, the kitchen and main living area on the second floor, and bedrooms on the third floor. With Duane Court, Taylor Morrison is answering the need for extra space of Asian buyers with multi-generation families. With around 2000 sqft, these townhouses are significantly larger than the more conventional townhouses being built across the street by O’Brien Homes at Fusion. With the larger floor plans, multiple generations can live together with sufficient independence. This allows families to accommodate grandparents and relatives for extended visits harmoniously.
With the population of target buyers growing rapidly in the south bay, demand is expected to be high. Pricing will likely be higher than the current Fusion townhouse. Based on the current rate of development, the first model homes should be ready for viewing around June/July of 2012. A small park in the center of the community is planned.
