ANAHEIM, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 06/25/13 -- The result of a successful community is not just the interest it garners, but the satisfaction of those who call it home. By both accounts, the amenity rich Colony Park community has become the number one place to live in the NEW Anaheim. And now, Brookfield Residential is proud to announce the final two new home neighborhoods to be built in the Colony Park community, Cortile and Casita, coming this summer to this favorite Orange County address. With Priority Registration and Sales Procedures now underway, interested homebuyers are encouraged to visit www.BrookfieldSoCal.com and take the first step for an opportunity to own one of these new homes at Colony Park within the Historic Colony District.
Both neighborhoods will feature charming Spanish Colonial architecture, generous living spaces, along with the resort-style amenities, recreational fun, friendly spirit and nod to history that has made Colony Park a homebuyer favorite. With no Mello-Roos, low tax rates, low HOA dues and eco-smart features that reduce monthly utilities bills by 25%-40% compared to neighboring cities, Cortile and Casita offer an incredible home buying package within one vibrant community.
Cortile at Colony Park will introduce a wonderful selection of charming, new two-story townhomes and flats that will range from approximately 730 to 1,682 square feet, with one- to three bedrooms, 1.5 to 2.5 baths and up to two-car garages.

Living at Colony Park allows homeowners to enjoy all the advantages of modern living with plenty of amenities at their fingertips. The community's location in the Historic Colony District puts residents within walking distance of numerous shops and restaurants, along with access to "Colony Park," the central park that is the home of Anaheim's newest Art in Public Places. The park offers multiple areas for children's play, including an interactive watercourse. Paying tribute to the City's arts and civic programs and serving a desire to renew the downtown's historic center, Colony Park presents a unique amenity that is homage to local history and a boon to the city's revitalization efforts.
Colony Park's amenities also include four private recreation centers including, Compass Park and Pavilion the ultimate spot for summertime enjoyment. A resort-style salt water pool, soaring palm trees, a covered outdoor pavilion with barbecues, outdoor fireplace, and a greenbelt park invite fun in the sun with friends, family, and neighbors.
The Pool House offers residents of Colony Park a second private recreation center complete with resort-inspired amenities, including indoor and outdoor areas for play or relaxation. A walk-in saltwater pool and Jacuzzi, outdoor fire pits, bar, barbecues and plentiful seating invite casual gatherings. The Pool House club room is the spot for relaxing with neighbors to watch the big game. Or, you can rent out the lounge for your own private party. In addition, The Pool House has an onsite community manager who plans events throughout the year, giving homeowners even more outlets for enjoying their surroundings and the company of friends and neighbors.
Colony Park is the latest in a long line of significant achievements and historical turning points for the city of Anaheim. A legacy of entrepreneurial spirit and old-fashioned hard work has continually transformed the city dating back to the 1800s. Most recently known as an international destination for fun and entertainment, Anaheim has been guided by civic leaders and partners like Brookfield Homes to evolve with changing times. The NEW Anaheim includes a new thriving art community that encompasses The Packing District, The Muzeo and Center Street Promenade.
Cortile and Casita residents are also fortunate to be within walking distance of the Anaheim Packing District. Located at 400 S Anaheim Blvd, Anaheim, this unique gathering place for local food, drinks and music includes the Packard Building, Farmers Park, and the currently under revitalization, Anaheim Packing House. Built in 1919, the restored Packing House will serve as a culinary center that brings together artisan food producers and purveyors in a public market type setting. The Packard Building houses Anaheim Brewery and Umami Burger now open. Farmers Park, an outdoor marketplace, which is scheduled to grand open on June 29th, will host an array of community activities such as outdoor concerts, movies, and seasonal festivals.

Colony Park has contributed significantly to creating the framework for the desirable and walkable NEW Anaheim, fostering a strong sense of city pride with a connection to the past, and hope for the future.
