The Rilington Group Begins Construction at Vallera Palm Springs

(La Quinta, CA– March 27, 2014) The Rilington Group, a long-time and well respected Coachella Valley homebuilder and developer, begins construction on Vallera Palm Springs at Village Traditions with 52 single family detached homes. This community of private courtyard homes is located in Palm Springs in the existing gated community, Village Traditions, a housing development located within Section 14 of the Agua Caliente Band of Cahuilla Indians reservation. Vallera’s grand opening with fully furnished models is projected for late August.

These three bedroom/three bath homes are offered in three distinct architectural styles including: Spanish Revival, Hacienda and California Ranch. The three two-story floor plans offer comfortable living spaces for today’s lifestyle, ranging from 1848 to 2185 square feet. Built in three different elevation styles, each home is distinctive and designed with indoor-outdoor living in mind.

The Rilington Group is known for high quality throughout its homes, no matter the price point. Vallera interiors highlight transitional style combined with modern design in cabinets, countertop and flooring finishes. Vallera will have all the high quality features both inside and out that Rilington communities have been noted for over the past four decades.

Vallera is located within walking distance from all that Palm Springs offers today with its original glamour and status as one of the country’s great resorts. “With the current resurgence of Palm Springs’ downtown and the city and business leader’s progressive attitude, with a face lift to the downtown area and lots of new activity, we know Vallera is the right community for those who embrace the Palm Springs lifestyle,” Mickie Riley, President of the Rilington Group, explains.

Spearheading Vallera’s construction is Gilbert Lopez, Onsite Construction Superintendent. Lopez rejoins Rilington with Vallera. He spent fifteen years with the company, working closely with principals Mickie and Hansi Riley on projects throughout the Coachella Valley and San Diego. “The history that Mickie and Hansi have had with my family during my employment has been outstanding. They have always treated us with great respect and honor. They feel like an extended family, Lopez says. “Coming back was so easy because it actually doesn’t feel like I ever left.”

Riley is just as pleased to have Lopez return. “After fifteen years of working together, Gilbert understands the Rilington corporate culture and what we are motivated by — pride in what we do. And always delivering a well-designed and well-built home to our buyers.”
