FORT MILL, S.C., July 31, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Developer Crescent Resources has started construction on a new phase of homesites at Springfield, and homebuilder Lennar has committed to purchasing all its 63 homesites. This is the second phase of development Crescent has begun at Springfield this year. In total, Crescent will be adding 106 new homesites to its popular Fort Mill, S.C., community in 2012.

"Sales have been brisk at Springfield this year, with 23 homes sold," said Joe Walker, development manager for Crescent Resources. "Lennar has been very successful in its current neighborhood called Garrison Mill at Springfield, selling 16 homes since January. Buyers have a demonstrated interest in Lennar's product at Springfield, and we are pleased to be expanding the company's offerings in the community."

Just 20 minutes from uptown Charlotte, Springfield offers residents a wealth of recreational opportunities, access to a highly ranked school system and low property taxes. Winding through the community is an 18-hole daily-fee golf course that shares the community's name. Orchard Park, the community's five-acre amenity park, features a family activities center, three swimming pools, six tennis courts, a playground and a pavilion. The 2,300-acre Anne Close Springs Greenway is adjacent to Springfield, and a trail leads from the community to the Springs Farm Market next door.

The new phase features homesites that overlook the 12th and 13th holes of the golf course as well homesites that back up to common areas. Development of the phase is expected to be complete in the fourth quarter, and home construction will start before the end of this year.

"Springfield has been a great community for Lennar," said Jon Hardy, division president for Lennar. "We are excited about the opportunity to continue our current offering into a new phase. The combination of Springfield's lifestyle and Lennar's 'Everything's Included' value has been warmly received by the Fort Mill community. With four-, five- and six-bedroom floor plans, families of all kinds are able to call Springfield home."

Crescent started construction on a phase of 43 homesites in May which will also be complete this year. David Weekley Homes committed to 38 of these homesites with Evans Coghill Homes taking the other five.

The community takes its name from the original Springs family homestead, which was completed in 1806 and is still standing today. For more information about Springfield, visit
