(Albuquerque, N.M.) March 27, 2018 –Real estate investment and development company Mariposa East, LP, an affiliate of Harvard Investments, Inc. is proud to announce Price Land & Development Group has purchased 10 acres of the Mariposa Master Planned Community outside Rio Rancho, New Mexico 30 minutes north of Albuquerque.

“We congratulate Price Land & Development on this acquisition and are delighted to partner with a local firm on the next phase of Mariposa,” shared Tim Brislin, vice president for Mariposa East, LP. “Their experience understanding the needs of the Rio Rancho community, having developed nearby communities for more than two decades, is especially valuable as we create this new neighborhood in the heart of Mariposa.”

The 10-acre acquisition includes 41 single-family residential lots to comprise the Jemez Vista neighborhood as part of the larger 6,500-acre Mariposa Master Planned Community. It is the newly formed Price Land & Development firm’s first acquisition.

“Mariposa is a premier community in this region, and has been gaining increased attention for its balance of wide open spaces and connected, fully-amenitized living,” shared Garret Price, president of Price Land & Development. “Given Mariposa’s sophistication and consumer-oriented attributes, we felt confident that Jemez Vista is the perfect first investment and sets the standard for our future partnerships.”

Mariposa, a 6,500-acre master planned community outside picturesque Rio Rancho, New Mexico, includes a large portion that will never be developed. The Mariposa Preserve, owned by The Albuquerque Academy, and consisting of 2,200 acres of dedicated open space within the heart of Mariposa, is protected in perpetuity. Additionally, the community includes Silver LEED- certified Residents’ Community Center, indoor and outdoor pools, Fitness Center, movement studio for yoga and other classes, kitchen and social area, community park including various ball courts, playground, ramadas and picnic areas, pop jet fountain, and renowned monumental sculptural art. Within Mariposa East you’ll also find The Point Grill restaurant as well as a LEED-certified office and retail complex.

Mariposa East, LP, an affiliate of Harvard Investments, purchased Mariposa East in 2014. These 1,465 acres will continue to be developed over time, with amenities, neighborhoods and homes already built and in use by approximately 500 owners with 2,500 total homes planned for Mariposa East at build out.

“Jemez Vista is in a prime location within a desirable, lifestyle oriented community featuring views, open space, access to top performing schools, 10 miles of trails and a stunning community center with a multitude of recreation amenities,” explained Price. “Plus Jemez Vista will be just minutes to the 550 and all that Rio Rancho has to offer.”
