[TRI Pointe Homes] – TRI Pointe Homes Southern California announced the acquisition of 119 lots in Santa Clarita, Calif., expanding the company’s offerings in Southern California. The new neighborhood, “Grayson at Five Knolls,” will include 119 single-family detached homes. It is located within Five Knolls, a new master-planned community by Brookfield Residential, which is slated for a total of 499 homes across five neighborhoods.

“The recent acquisition at Five Knolls further develops TRI Pointe’s strong relationship with Brookfield Residential and provides a strategic opportunity to establish a new presence in a highly desirable location within the Santa Clarita Valley market,” said TRI Pointe Homes Southern California Division President Tom Grable. “With residential development limited and current home supply levels extremely low, this opportunity allows TRI Pointe to use its experience to deliver quality product within a master plan.”

Grayson at Five Knolls will offer three contemporary floor plans ranging from 2,000 to 2,400 square feet. The expected buyer profiles are move-up and executive move-up buyers. Pricing is anticipated to begin in the low $500,000s, with a targeted grand opening in July 2015.

Located east of I-5, west of the 14 Freeway, northeast of the current alignment of Newhall Ranch Road and north of the terminus of Golden Valley Road in the Santa Clarita Valley, homebuyers at Grayson at Five Knolls are close to Valley schools, services, and shopping centers. The community boasts convenient access to Santa Clarita’s commuter routes, including the new Via Princessa Metro Station. The new metro line will give access to job centers in San Fernando Valley and Los Angeles with Metro stations in Sylmar, Sun Valley, Burbank Airport, Downtown Burbank, Downtown Glendale and Central Los Angeles. The Metro line also offers a reverse commute to Antelope Valley, accommodating a growing number of aerospace (Northrop-Grumman, Lockheed-Martin) and military contractors (Edwards Air Force Base, China Lake Naval Base) who work in the Antelope Valley but choose to live in Santa Clarita.

With a premier location near major transportation and job corridors, we anticipate that the interest at Grayson at Five Knolls will be quite strong,” said Grable. “The idyllic hillside setting with great views and access to quality schools will make the new residences even more attractive to home buyers.”

    Maybe a better name would be “Charcoal at Five Knolls”.

  2. It continues. I thought incorporation was going to hold off development. Not hardly

  3. Jay Harn Jay Harn says:

    How are the going to deal with even more traffic?

  4. Traffic? Water? We moved here in 1980 because we didn’t want to be part of the valley spread like San Fernando Valley.

  5. Traffic? Water? We moved here in 1980 because we didn’t want to be part of the valley spread like San Fernando Valley.

  6. Oh wow…the drought is over and traffic congestion in awesome town and has been eliminated? When did that happen and why wasn’t it in the news?

  7. Great. More people, more homes, more crime, more traffic, less beauty, less wildlife. I hope they arent more townhouses or apartments like they’re putting In on Newhall ranch. UGLY. Turning this place into San fernando valley.

  8. Dawna Monroe Dawna Monroe says:

    cause 200K people in a 50 mile square radius isnt enough

  9. Kim Sloan Kim Sloan says:

    This new building is out of control. Citizens in SCV need to start being active in this. Not enough water, sanitation, traffic & property concerns are important to address now! Following the money trails are showing our city council is completely selling us out!

  10. The house seeds are being spread again. :-/

  11. Sophie Sidky Sophie Sidky says:


    Seriously, how do we stop this? This is, legit, one of the worst ideas I’ve ever seen in this town. We don’t need more houses; we need more things to do, better safety, etc. Not more people to add on to the fact that there isn’t that much to do in SCV.

    And don’t even get me started on the resources that we are very much running out of.

  12. Jeremy Williams says:

    Oh no! It’s another attack of the NIMBY’s!!

  13. Everyone is complaining about more building, but don’t you all know that SCV is a master planned community? That means the areas that will be developed were planned long, long a ago. Maybe not the exact style of homes, but you can rest assured that every development they start out here has been drawn out on some map that existed before many of us moved here.

  14. Doug Pearson Doug Pearson says:

    Not surprised. all dead end roads eventually lead to construction in the scv even if they end at a huge mountain and it seems like they could never build there

  15. Nancy Sell Nancy Sell says:

    Yup over 25 years we knew about it when we loved in ten yes ago because the plan to bring the road they to Sierra hwy will be right near me near sans canyon

  16. Jeanne says:

    Just like we got rid of the vans and larger SUV’s and now want crossovers, we need more housing options for baby boomers who want to start downsizing. We want to get smaller homes, 2 bedroom 2 bath homes with large kitchen, open concept, small yards. We also need good prices. Come on builders, where are they?

  17. That’s all we need is more homes for more traffic
