Bella Canto Groundbreaking

On August 2, 2003 The highly respected Southern California builder, Rilington Communities, broke ground July 24th on Bella Canto, its first Coachella Valley neighborhood.

On hand for the event were Mickie and Hansi Riley, principals of Rilington Communities, Juan DeLara, Mayor, Rosanna Contreras, City Council Member, Steve Brown, City of Coachella Neighborhood Services Director and Gabe Papp, Acting Director of Community Development.

Mickie Riley welcomed guests saying, “We fell in love with the Coachella Valley the first time we visited. Our two-day weekends became three then four days, now we are shopping for a home here and plan spend more time in the valley. Thank you for embracing this community and giving us your support.”

A late fall opening of the model homes is anticipated. Bella Canto is composed of five unique floor plans spanning from an inviting single story design that encompasses 1,369 square feet and three bedrooms to a two-story home that spans to more than 2,000 square feet and includes five bedrooms or four bedrooms plus a den. A host of standard amenities are included while numerous options will also be offered.

Council member Rosanna Contreras addressing guests said, “The casita concept at Bella Canto is particularly welcome in Coachella. A large part of the city? population is composed of traditional families, often with a grandmother or mother-in-law living with the family. The opportunity to have a private casita will be well-received.”

A temporary sales information center is now open and staffed at the site, which is located at 50th and Calhoun. Presales are underway. Interested homebuyers are welcome to come by and view plans and lot availability.

A family owned and operated company, Rilington Communities offers decades of experience in all facets of the building industry and takes great pride in the high levels of personal involvement that go into every community it builds.
