Top-selling master planned communities | New homes Daybreak

Daybreak Ranks #5 in Nation

[SOUTH JORDAN, UT] Daybreak remains the best place to live in Utah according to real estate advisory firm, RCLCO. This honor was announced earlier this month in the RCLCO Top-Selling Master Planned Communities Mid-Year report where Daybreak ranked #5 in the nation and number #1 in Utah.

Now in its 16th year, Daybreak has grown to encompass 8,000+ homes and is now home to over 25,000 people. For the first 6 months of 2020, Daybreak maintained a record-breaking pace, selling 507 homes, an increase of 40% compared to the same time last year. By comparison to the other communities listed in the ranking reports (California, Florida, Nevada, etc.) the Salt Lake City housing market is much smaller.  So, it’s notable that a community like Daybreak can achieve sales volumes that are comparable to other master plans located in much larger population centers even during a pandemic.

And this isn’t Daybreak’s only recent recognition. In June 2019, the PCBC Gold Nuggets awarded Daybreak as the Master Planned Community of the Year and also gave merit honors to Daybreak’s SoDa Row district in the category of Best Mixed Use Development. Also in February 2019, the National Association of Home Builders named the Hub — the combination café, neighborhood pool and information center in Daybreak’s Upper Villages — as Best Sales/Information Center among entrants from across the U.S. and Canada.

The Art of Development

As placemakers, we never view a project as just the houses or office building or retail district. It’s how every element comes together and ties into the surrounding community. And with our relationship to organizations such as Värde Partners, we have the resources to work with the utmost flexibility, at a large scale, and with a long-term perspective. We have the capital, the vision and the experience to act decisively. In short, we offer an optimal combination of big developer bandwidth and boutique developer attitude.

Daybreak Communities is dedicated to the art and science of placemaking. The core team was originally brought together to develop Daybreak in the Salt Lake Valley. The result: a national model of sustainable mixed-use development, which is well into its second decade of market-leading growth and sales. Now Daybreak Communities is expanding its reach, bringing its unique approach to the rest of Utah and the Mountain States region. Ours is a holistic viewpoint. A hypersensitivity to context. A careful consideration of every factor. Above all, we believe in the transformative power of design to create exceptional value for all stakeholders — property owners who care about their legacy, investors and development partners committed to making great places, and communities looking to grow in healthy new ways.
