Building on Quality: Taylor Morrison’s Acquisition of Orleans Homes is Great News for Home Buyers

Phoenix-based Taylor Morrison believes homebuyers deserve the highest standard of quality construction and service available. As part of our quest to expand offerings to as many desirable markets across the nation as possible we’re constantly on the lookout for established homebuilders sharing core ideologies.

The acquisition of Orleans Homes in Chicago signals the discovery of a company showcasing our same vision for distinction and merit in community development.

We are proud and excited to announce that as of July 2015, Orleans Homes will be operating under the Taylor Morrison name in Chicago. New signs, same commitment to excellence!

A History of Betterment via Mergers

In 2008 a new approach to designing, building and selling quality new homes and communities was born with the merger of Taylor Woodrow and Morrison Homes.

Under the new name of Taylor Morrison, Inc. fresh benchmarks have been set with regards to comfortable living spaces, innovative floor plans, unbelievable design aesthetic and an unparalleled buying experience.

All with a build quality unmatched in the industry.

Adding the recognized expertise of Orleans Homes to our umbrella has planted the seeds of incredible optimism for things to come.

Details of the Acquisition

Following the successful entry into Atlanta in mid-May, Taylor Morrison struck an interest in three exciting new markets upon determining the compatibility of Orleans Homes’ Chicago, Raleigh and Charlotte operations.

In total, 24 communities and 2,100 prime lots were transferred in ownership. The company cited these locations as “high-growth areas where people want to live.”

Our mission is to inspire and enrich lives through homes and communities that truly serve individual needs and desires. We’ve made shopping for a new home fun again.
