SAN JOSE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--KB Home (NYSE: KBH) today announced the grand opening of Metro II, its latest collection of new single-family homes in the desirable Communications Hill master plan community. Building upon the success of KB Home’s popular Metro community, Metro II is conveniently located near major highways and the Caltrain Capitol Station for easy commuting to Silicon Valley and throughout the greater Bay Area.
Residents of Metro II can enjoy numerous community amenities, including hiking and walking trails, parks and the Grand Staircase in Tuscany Hills, a local recreation hotspot that features incredible views of Silicon Valley. Prime shopping, dining and entertainment are available at nearby Santana Row and downtown San Jose. Metro II is located in the Franklin-McKinley School District.
KB Home will host a grand opening celebration at Metro II at Communications Hill on Saturday, Nov. 17, from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., during which attendees may tour the four elegantly appointed model homes.
At Metro II, KB Home will construct 195 townhomes and offer four distinct floor plans. With up to four bedrooms and three-and-a-half bathrooms and ranging in size from 1,650 to 2,000 square feet, these homes also feature such desirable design characteristics as open floor plan living and spacious kitchens, as well as private and attached garages. Pricing begins in the low-$900,000s.
“At Metro II, homebuyers will find an uncommon opportunity to purchase and personalize a new home near the heart of Silicon Valley,” said Chris Apostolopoulos, regional president of KB Home Northern California. “With its impressive hilltop views, commuter-friendly location and a myriad of community amenities, it is easy to see why Communications Hill has been so popular with homebuyers over the years.”
The KB homes at Metro II will be built to current ENERGY STAR® guidelines and include WaterSense® labeled faucets and fixtures, meaning they are designed to be more energy- and water-efficient than most typical new and resale homes available in the area. These energy- and water-saving features are estimated to save homebuyers between $948 to $1,476 a year in utility costs, depending on floor plan.
As part of KB Home’s distinct homebuilding process, buyers may personalize many aspects of their new home to suit their budget and preferences. After selecting their homesite location and floorplan, KB homebuyers may work with expert design consultants to select from a plethora of design and décor choices, including countertops, cabinets, lighting, appliances and window coverings.
