Homebuilding company, PulteGroup, is creating an active community for baby boomers.
The Phoenix Business Journal got the exclusive on the 72-unit gated subdivision, the first under the Pulte name in the Phoenix area.
It’s part of a larger development under the moniker Lone Tree and is aimed at retirees over the age of 55. This active adult community mindset has been fairly prominent in Arizona’s housing market following the recent recession.
There’s no word yet if aging-in-place tech will be used in the community, but Pulte is no stranger to smart home technologies.

According to the Phoenix Business Journal, 2,000 people have already expressed interest and are on a list for this new development.
