Rilington Communities Offers First Gated Single Family Housing Development in the City of Coachella


Cathedral City, CA – Rilington Communities, a Coachella Valley home builder based in Cathedral City, has recently begun sales of single family homes in the first gated residential development ever in the city of Coachella. The new community – known as Prado – is receiving rave reviews from families seeking innovative design and high quality construction at attainable prices. The Prado community, located Avenue 50 and van Buren in Coachella features five distinctive floorplans with up to six bedrooms and up to 3,339 square feet of living space.

“We are so proud of this beautiful new gated community, which I think is the highest quality subdivision in the city of Coachella to date,” stated Mayor Pro Tem, Juan DeLara. “There were several challenges in the planning process, but the project came to fruition in the best possible way because of Mickie Riley’s (Rilington CEO) vision, commitment and belief in the city as a great place for people to create a traditional neighborhood and raise their families.”

Rilington Director of Sales, Kathleen Ahlgren, notes that the company’s focus on building family oriented neighborhoods compelled them to include the gated entry feature to create a higher level of security and enhanced sense of unified ownership at Prado than has existed before in the city. “We are a family owned and operated builder for families and we wanted to make Prado a special place to showcase what can be done in Coachella, which is an up and coming city that is home to hard working, closely knit families that care about building a sense of community.”

The city of Coachella is a special place for Rilington Communities because it was the site of the company’s first new home community – known as Bella Canto – in the Coachella Valley after the company relocated its operations to the desert
