DMB’s Newest Community to make its mark in the East Valley

May 11, 2012

DMB Associates’ community development team has been hard at work this past year developing the thematic design for Eastmark, DMB’s newest East Valley community. The new community name, Eastmark, was announced on January 12th and celebrates the hallmarks of the region: innovation, commerce, community and connectedness and is a place that will soon serve as a center of regional importance.

The theming of Eastmark is planned to be reminiscent of the tight-knit expression of a neighborhood in DMB’s Scottsdale community, DC Ranch. The themeing at DC Ranch began with the McDowell Mountains, the stunning desert views and vegetation and the desire to create great Arizona neighborhoods. We have shown how DC Ranch lives the way we intended and grows better with each passing year.

Eastmark will be developed from the same community building principles as DC Ranch but, of course, the development’s character and the way it lives will be very different. Eastmark will be developed on land that was once the General Motors Proving Grounds, with uninterrupted views of the Superstition Mountains and close proximity to three major freeways, the Phoenix-Mesa Gateway Airport and ASU Polytechnic Campus.

The minds behind Eastmark are working diligently to discover what this new place will look and feel like – what will set it apart and make it a community where people will not only live, but a place they will be proud to call home.

Keep up with Eastmark at to watch as the Southeast Valley’s newest community begins to grow and see how Eastmark will make its mark in the East Valley for generations to come.
