The Ridge at Lantana subdivision was established in 2005 by developer Blake Magee Company L.P., who purchased the property from public company, Stratus Properties Inc. The property was subdivided into approximately 342 lots, and agreements were inked with three home builders to “take down” the lots – in other words, purchase the lots over a set period of time. The three home builders included Plantation Homes (“Mhi Ptshp Ltd” is the name in the tax records), Meritage Homes (“Legacy Of Monterey Homes” and “Meritage Homes of Texas L P &” are both listed as the owner’s name in the tax records or MLS), and Newmark homes.
All three builders originally constructed model homes at the front entrance of the Ridge at Lantana subdivision and placed full-time sales personnel in those homes to begin selling “to-be-built” homes on their pre-designated lots in the new neighborhood. Prospective home buyers were able to visit each builder to view a handful of floor plans they would like to have built over the course of 6-12 months on the lot of their choice. On occasion, the builders would construct a home on one of their lots and would then sell it as existing inventory.
There were four phases to the development, which was part of the “take down” process, where the builders sold most or all of the lots in the first phase before moving on to selling lots and building homes in the next phase. As of late 2009, the first three phases were built out completely with the fourth phase partially completed. As of 2011, all phases were completed.
