Pulte Homes buys 86 developed lots in Stormcloud

Pulte Homes is planning to expand its presence on the Westside of Albuquerque with the purchase of 86 developed lots in Stormcloud. The developer has begun marketing these communities.

According to the developer’s website, Pulte recently opened The Boulders and Mesa del Sol communities in Albuquerque, in addition to featuring new homes at Volterra.

At The Stormcloud six home designs are available, ranging in size from 1,776 to 3,123 square feet, and priced from the high-$180,000s. The one and two-level single-family homes also feature three and four bedrooms. This new project marks the second time Pulte has sold homes in Stormcloud. So far, it has sold 129 units more than two years ago, according to an official statement.

“We are pleased to be back at Stormcloud, offering new floor plans and lower prices,” said Wade Messenger, the company’s vice president of sales, in a news release. “Stormcloud is attractive to value-oriented families and empty nesters alike who prefer convenience to the highway for easy commuting and who love living near outstanding recreational facilities.”

The New Mexico Business Weekly, quoting DataTraq, reports that Pulte Homes was nominated the second-largest production homebuilder in the Duke City, behind D.R. Horton.

Meanwhile, Albuquerque Mayor Richard J. Berry announced the groundbreaking of a $19 million recycling facility on Sept. 6. The 87,000 square foot facility is part of a public-private partnership between the city and Friedman Recycling, according to a news release. It is estimated that 120,000 tons of recyclable material will be sorted at the new facility each year, helping to reduce the amount of trash that is sent to the landfill.

The facility is also expected to generate 35 jobs initially and eventually 75, according to officials.
