The Desert Sun’s Rosalie Murphy writes that Del Webb, the developer behind Sun City Palm Desert and Sun City Shadow Hills, has started work on its latest desert development of 1,028 homes near the Agua Caliente Casino Resort Spa in Rancho Mirage. The community is an active adult community that is age-restricted, but doesn't have healthcare or assisted living facilities on site.

According to Pulte Group, Del Webb's parent company, the new Del Webb at Rancho Mirage community will sit on the northeast corner of Dinah Shore Drive and Los Alamos Road, north of the Westin Mission Hills. Its Spanish and Tuscan style houses will come in 7 floor plans, ranging from the Getaway two-bed, two-bath model, with a 2 car garage at 1,400 square feet to the Journey three-bed, two-bath model with 2-3 car garage at 2,500 square feet. All the houses will be detached, and the land is fee simple, where homeowners own the land under their houses. The Rancho Mirage project does not include a golf course, but does include a clubhouse and fitness complex, with a fitness center, aerobics studio, billiards room and conference and ballrooms. The neighborhood will also have pools, hiking and walking trails and tennis and pickleball courts. Homes are slated to begin selling in early 2018, with models homes available in spring 2018. Pricing is still being determined.

According to the Agua Caliente Band of Cahuilla Indians’ Section 24 Specific Plan for the site, the areas that border the Del Webb neighborhood to the north and east are zoned multi-family residential, meaning apartments or condos will likely be developed there. The areas that border Ramon Road and Bob Hope Drive are zoned for resort and retail uses.
