For those who didn’t get a chance to reserve a home in McHenry’s Crossing, which opens next month at Crest, another opportunity awaits. The Highlands Ranch, Colo., Erickson Living community recently announced construction is under way on Parry Landing, a second new residence building. 

“After nearly selling out of McHenry’s Crossing, we found we needed to accommodate the great demand for the unparalleled lifestyle Wind Crest offers,” says Sales Director Jason Atwell.

More of what people want

Like McHenry’s Crossing, Parry Landing will be located across the Highline Canal and Trail from the original neighborhood. An impressive sky bridge will connect the new and original neighborhoods with all-season access. Shuttle transportation will also be available. 

Parry Landing will bring 74 additional apartment homes to Wind Crest in 27 open-concept floor plans. Like McHenry’s Crossing, many homes will feature balconies—a common request among priority list members and other future residents. 

“These homes have more open designs, are more spacious, and like all of our apartment homes have tremendous views,” Atwell says. 

Standard design highlights include plank floors in the foyers and kitchens, granite countertops, stainless steel appliances, brushed nickel hardware, and a combination of recessed and pendant lighting in the kitchens. And if you reserve a home that is under construction prior to the selections deadlines, you can choose the flooring, cabinet, and countertop colors from a wonderful selection of standard offerings.

Outside the apartment homes, amenities include the Timberline Tavern—a pub and grill—additional community space, a salon-spa, and a café. 

It won’t last long

Atwell says he expects homes in Parry Landing to sell quickly. “Neighborhood one is completely sold out, and this may be the last opportunity to get a brand new home at Wind Crest,” he says.

“We encourage people to join the priority list to get in line for an available home,” says Sales Counselor Molly Thorne-Dhieux. “Even if you’re not ready right now, things may change by the time Parry Landing is complete. By joining the priority list, you are ensuring you have the opportunity to make a choice when a home design that you love becomes available.”

Priority list membership requires a single, refundable $1,000 deposit and a nonrefundable $150 per-person application fee to ensure that a home at Wind Crest will be available when you’re ready to move. 

Priority list membership includes other perks, like downsizing and moving workshops and social events. Many people who are moving to McHenry’s Crossing next month took advantage of those resources to prepare for their move. Topics include “estate sales” and “meet your neighbors.”

“I can’t praise Wind Crest enough for all the help they provide,” says priority list member Yolanda Smith, who will move to McHenry’s Crossing in November.
