Curious to know about new neighborhoods coming soon to Rochester Hills and Rochester MI, as well as those that are currently active? In this post, we update our original entry from 2016/2017, and bring you up to date on what’s happening (or about to happen) for residential new construction in Rochester/Rochester Hills – one of our most requested locations in Oakland County:
Current + Coming Soon For 2023/2024
Now that Pulte Homes, Lombardo Homes, and Robertson Brothers Homes have closed out the various neighborhoods they had going over the past 5 years or so, the market for new single-family home neighborhoods and condominium communities is fairly light. Individual lot-builds are still happening at a decent rate, but if you want to be in a new neighborhood, here are your current and coming-soon options:
The Enclaves – 26 single-family homes by JBK Homes, currently under construction on the east side of Rochester Rd., north of Tienken. This neighborhood is just as spectacular as we had imagined (see below), however, you’ll find the price increases have also become spectacular, with most of the homes in the neighborhood now starting in the $1.2M range.
Breckenridge – Featuring 12 “duet condominiums” on the south side of Hamlin, just west of Livernois, these high-end plans will offer 2-3 bedrooms with 2.5-3.5 bathrooms, and 2,490 sqft or 2,543 sqft options, all with 2-car garages and an appealing mix of brick and stone on the exteriors. Expect well-appointed interiors, with prices starting in the $690s.
Saddlebrook Orchards – Currently under construction by DM Homes, this intimate single-family home neighborhood will only offer 10 homesites. While the ranch plan will be just under 2,000 sqft, the colonial plans will range from 2,500 sqft to roughly 3,000 sqft. Pricing currently starts in the low-to-mid $600s, and it’s worth noting this neighborhood is within the Avondale School District.
Villas of Shadow Pines – Located on the north side of South Blvd, just west of Coolidge Hwy, these attached condominiums by Venture Building are currently under construction, with a total of 28 to be built. Offering all-brick exteriors and a single 2,306 sqft floor plan that can be configured to various bedroom and bathroom layouts, prices are being advertised from the $600s. This neighborhood is also within the Avondale School District.
Maple Hill Townhomes – Coming at some point in the near future (limited information is available at the moment), the site has been cleared and construction seems imminent. Featuring 10 “luxury” townhomes (that per the renderings, look much more like the semi-detached condos), they’ll be located on an extension to Maple Hill Road, which runs west from Orion Road, north of Tienken Road. Milestone Development is currently listed as the builder and, while pricing isn’t available yet, our guess is they’ll be north of $700K.
Remember, the builder sales representative works for the builder, not you; we are Realtors who specialize in new construction and we represent YOU! Our service is free, as long as we’re with you on your first visit to the builders’ sales office – so let’s connect, get your search started, and find the perfect place to build your new home!!
Current + Coming Soon For 2016/2017
Woodland Park – 48 homes on 23.6 acres by Pulte coming to the south side of Hamlin, west of Livernois
Sanctuary in the Hills East – 14 condos by Macleish coming on the east side of Sanctuary, north of South Boulevard. No ETA or pricing is available at this time.
The Enclaves – single-family homes by JBK Homes, coming to the east side of Rochester Rd., north of Tienken. This is a spectacular parcel that has taken years to develop, carefully preserving the mature trees and rolling landscape. Homes are expected to start in the $800s.
Bloomer Woods – 30 new homes by Lombardo Homes coming to the east side of John R, north of Avon. This cozy neighborhood provides close access to Downtown Rochester and is expected to start in the upper $300s.
Bald Mountain (Orion Township with Rochester Schools) – a massive development with condos, single-family homes, and a community pool & clubhouse by Pulte Homes. The last major parcel within the Rochester School district, Pulte is already projecting that people will be camping out for homesites.
Wystone South (Oakland Township) – 121 new homes in 2 phases on the east side of Rochester Rd., north of Letts. A new section of Lombardo’s already extremely popular Wynstone neighborhood, prices haven’t been determined yet but the upper $300s is likely.
