A review of 55+ community Altis by Pardee Homes. I attended the Grand Opening billed as "epic" and it was. One of the best GO's I have attended.
There was great food, live music, events and a smiling hostess. Starting off right by being greeted by the Social Director just seconds after I entered the crowded clubhouse.
She warmly pointed out to me all the venues from the map and party guide. She pointed to the vast stretch of green immediately in front of us. "That big lawn where people are in line, that's the Event Lawn," she said. A vast stretch of green, with a backdrop of mountain views of the San Gorgonio and San Jacinto Mountains was where party attendees were waiting for a lunch of sirloin or chicken burgers.
There were also free cocktails, mocktails, beer stands with pretzels or gourmet coffee. Everything was thought through and managed well.
She pointed out on the map where all the displays were and how to get there via the golf cart rides and buses from the parking lot. So off I went feeling much more comfortable.
There was a structure to this party, a theme, and a carefully worded idea: The future is modern and its here now at Altis. Everything explored that idea from the modern architecture to the "smart home" displays and home features.
At The grand opening party to familiarize oneself with Altis and the 55+ modern lifestyle that Pardee Homes has envisioned for this community there was:

California is known for its outdoor lifestyle. When browsing the Altis collections what stood out for me were the many options to inculcate outdoor living spaces into the floorplans. There were covered patios, solarium like rooms, cozy courtyards and more. All of these were accented with drought-tolerant plants inside and out.
In these spaces one can enjoy moments of privacy, meditation, enjoy cool breezes, commune up close with drought-tolerant plantings, and feel the touch of scattered sunlight. Fountains for tranquil sounds, restful seating, firepits, outdoor cooking, gardening were all on display.
This list is not complete. There are more special features. Please verify all information with builder as it can change.
