The Loop 303 corridor in the northwest Valley is poised for significant growth with a technically skilled and educated workforce.

Now those workers have a new rental housing option.

“We have created innovation in the multi-family industry with our hybrid of single-family homes and luxury apartments. It really is a new way to live that is resonating with Millennials and Boomers alike who appreciate not having a neighbor above or below,” says Todd Wood, CEO of Christopher Todd Communities.

The 222-home Christopher Todd Communities On Happy Valley opened this summer at 11903 W. Happy Valley Road, just west of the Loop 303 in north Peoria, near the master planned community of Vistancia and Lake Pleasant.
The one- and two-bedroom, single-story homes with 10- to 11-foot ceilings, come with smart home technology and maintenance-free private backyards that are great for working from home and social distancing. Each home is equipped with DirecTV and technology for keyless door entry, remote door locking, and climate and entertainment control via smart phone or tablet. The remote climate feature can help residents save up to 12% annually on their heating and cooling costs. To support the smart features, the included Internet has a speed up to 1000/1000 mbps. The amenity-rich smart-gated community features a resort-style pool, fitness center, event lawn and park.

Companies looking to locate near the 303 and bring jobs to the area will find a great lifestyle community, which is attractive to their employees.

“Peoria is fortunate with a vibrant small business community led by great entrepreneurs and community leaders. The City of Peoria Economic Development plans and efforts are aggressive yet targeted to attract high quality manufacturing, technology, and services companies to the beauty of the wide-open vistas in northwest Peoria. As our job base continues to grow, quality affordable housing and amenities are a ‘must have’ as part of the overall business ecosystem,” says Scot Andrews, CEO of the Peoria Chamber of Commerce.
