Colorado-based Century Communities Inc., one of the nation’s largest homebuilders, is planning its largest project in San Antonio, a 1,100-acre gated master-planned community on the Far West Side called Ladera.

The development is near Texas Highway 211 and West Grosenbacher Road and will be divided into eight gated communities. The first phase of construction will consist of 20 homes, and hundreds more are expected when the community is completed. Available home plans will range in size from 1,869 to 2,760 square feet, including three to five bedrooms, two to three and a half baths, and three-car garages. Prices will start in the mid-$200,000s, and the community’s first model homes are set to open around June.

The community will feature several amenities for residences, including an amenities center with a pool; several miles of trails, including an extension to the Lucas Creek Greenway; and a future elementary school in the Medina Valley Independent School District. Along TX-211, the community’s site map has also set aside land for commercial and multifamily development.

While there’s not much in the area now, Century Communities (NYSE: CCS) is hoping to be a step ahead of development on the Far West Side. And it’s not alone.

Several master-planned communities are in the works on San Antonio’s Far West Side, including two by McCombs Enterprises. As first reported by the Business Journal in October, McCombs is planning a 1,000-acre community called Summit at Redbird along the future TX-211 extension and a 1,400-home community called Stonewall along U.S. Highway 90.

Century Communities has built six residential developments in San Antonio and two in New Braunfels.
