The New Home Company Returns to Irvine with Spacious Residences at Great Park’s Rise Neighborhood

NEW HOME and Great Park’s Developer FivePoint enter into Strategic Relationship on Atlas, a collection of luxury detached single-family homes and the last to be built at Rise. 


ALISO VIEJO, Calif. (July 23, 2020) – The city of Irvine is a special place for The New Home Company (NEW HOME, NYSE: NWHM). It’s where the company built its first homes in 2009. Since then, it has successfully completed multiple communities and hundreds of homes in the city. Today, NEW HOME announced its return to Irvine with Atlas, a collection of thoughtfully designed expansive residences within Rise at the Great Park Neighborhoods.


NEW HOME has entered into a strategic relationship with the developer of Great Park Neighborhoods (FivePoint) on Atlas, where construction is now underway. The detached single-family homes will feature a contemporary blend of traditional and modern architecture with spacious floorplans ranging from 3,360 to 3,647 square feet with up to five bedrooms. Atlas residents will have access to the abundance of community amenities that define the Rise village, with pools, clubhouses, parks, sky decks and trails to explore and enjoy. 

An interest list is now forming for Atlas and NEW HOME anticipates a sales launch and model homes debut in early 2021. Prices are expected to begin in the mid $1 millions. 

“We’re thrilled to be back in Irvine where we’ve had the honor of building award winning homes for families over the last decade, including at our first Great Park neighborhood,” said Joan Webb, Chief Marketing Officer for NEW HOME. “FivePoint has done a tremendous job in creating a master plan for Great Park that has resulted in it becoming one of the most desirable communities in Southern California. Atlas will be the ideal setting for growing families looking for more square footage, excellent schools and all of the lifestyle benefits afforded at the Great Park Neighborhoods.”

“NEW HOME is a well-known, quality home builder who we have had a long relationship with. We are very happy to see them return to our Great Park community,” said Lynn Jochim, Chief Operating Officer for FivePoint.

Atlas, which will include a total of 38 homes, will be the 10thand final neighborhood to open at Rise.
