FALCON CREST
93 three and four bedroom single family homes in Palm Desert.

Community Dynamics built a state-of-the-art $28 million homeownership community for low and moderate income families at Falcon Crest in Palm Desert. Designed by the Coachella Valley's Kristi Hanson Architects and nationally recognized KTGY Group, Inc., these Spanish revival beauties range in size from 1,455 to 1,670 square feet, and sell from $199,000 in a market where entry level new homes start at about $325,000.

This Energy Star community beats Title 24's already stringent standards by nearly 20%, and features 190kw of building integrated rooftop photovoltaics valued at more than $1.5 million and designed to cut homeowners' electrical bills in half.

Award winning RGA Landscape Architects delivered sustainable xericscape design utilizing plants native to the Coachella Valley , drip irrigation and inorganic materials like decomposed granite, cobble and boulders to create inspired spaces requiring minimal water usage.

And in recognition of rising life expectancy and the fact that many of our homebuyers have multi-generational families, all of the homes at Falcon Crest include universal design features that promote livability as homeowners age in place. Every home features a bedroom and bath on the first floor, widened doorways and hallways for improved circulation, lever handlesets on all doors, and reinforcement for future installation of grab bars at all bathroom fixtures.

In a public-private partnership with the Palm Desert Redevelopment Agency, we cobbled together layered financing, including a $2.8 million grant from the State of California's BEGIN program and $14 million in below market 30 year fixed rate financing from CalHFA to help make these homes affordable to families earning as little as $40,000 per year.

Falcon Crest received the HUD Secretary's Gold Award for Excellence in Affordable Housing at the NAHB's Best In American Living Awards.
