Alamar is a one-of-a-kind master-planned community in Arizona’s West Valley that celebrates the Sonoran Desert’s rich natural assets: the Sierra Estrella Mountains and close proximity to the surrounding desert, rivers, and mountains. Developed by Brookfield Residential in partnership with the City of Avondale, the community is spread over 1,130 acres, with 3,695 homes, acres of green parks, more than 9 miles of nature trails, and welcoming landscaped streets.
The framework of Alamar supports health, wellness, and active outdoor living, while providing continuous opportunities for residents and visitors to connect and engage on a daily basis. Spacious, highly amenitized parks will serve as the main gathering spots for residents, from a 40 acre Regional Park where residents and the public can enjoy large events to Community and Neighborhood Parks that will serve as social hubs for residents and their guests. An extensive network of green walking, biking, and exercise trails will also connect recreational spaces within the community.

Alamar features 3,695 uniquely built homes across 1,130 acres of parks, trails, and welcoming streets. Built in conjunction with the nation’s leading home builders, there are four distinct architectural styles—Spanish Colonial, Craftsman/Bungalow, Territorial Ranch, and Traditional Southwest—each designed to promote individual character among the neighborhoods and add to the community’s overall street scenes.
The first phase of the community will open in the second half of 2020 with 461 homes from leading builders including Shea, Taylor Morrison, Gehan, David Weekley, Landsea Homes and Capital West. These thoughtfully designed homes are between 1,700 to 3,540 square feet and have set-back garages, tonal colors, and minimal overhangs to create visually engaging street scenes.

Supported by Alamar and the City of Avondale, the 40 acre Regional Park is for families and friends to gather around shared outdoor activities. The green park with a lake and picnic areas has something for everyone: multi-purpose ball fields, basketball and tennis courts, a splash pad, a dog park, and generous spaces for live events, concerts, and seasonal festivals.
Alamar is home to more than 30 Neighborhood Parks, each uniquely fitted for the surrounding residents: Young families gather around playgrounds, picnic tables, and shaded ramadas, while families with older children enjoy more dynamic installations just outside their front doors. Three larger Community Parks, each 2-4 acres, serve clusters of neighborhoods with a pool, play structures, and ball fields. Here, residents can socialize under shaded canopies while watching their children play, make new friends, and enjoy barbeques and shared meals at picnic tables.
Winding through the Alamar community is a 9.5-mile trail system offering safe and convenient paths for walking, biking, and jogging with views of the Sierra Estrella Mountains, desert landscapes, and rivers. These trails connect neighborhoods and dozens of parks, as well as link to Avondale’s popular regional trails and scenic corridors along the Agua Fria and Gila Rivers for easy access to a healthy lifestyle right at your doorstep.
Along the trails and in parks, neighbors can take in a variety of unique artworks from Alamar’s Public Art Program, which commissioned dozens of custom pieces by award-winning artists. Each iconic piece will be integrated into the landscapes to enliven the scenery and bring culture and beauty to its residents. Sculptures, integrated art and other installations for all ages inspired by Alamar’s agrarian heritage and mountain-view setting turn a walk in the park into a creative and educational experience.
