Watt Communities of Arizona is a joint venture between Watt Communities and New Leaf Communities, Watt’s local operating partner. Under the direction of New Leaf Communities principals Steven Pritulsky (President & CEO) and Paul Timm (COO), Watt Communities of Arizona combines Watt’s financial strength and deep-rooted infill residential track record with New Leaf’s experienced local team that understands the needs and desires of the metro Phoenix marketplace. The combination results in high-quality, urban for-sale townhome and high-density single-family communities that meet the discriminating needs of a new era of Phoenix buyers. The company focuses on strategically located urban infill sites where people want to live: close to transportation, jobs, shopping, dining/entertainment and cultural amenities.
New Leaf Communities advises, designs and develops creative housing solutions in urban areas and supply-constrained markets, with a focus on projects in core metropolitan Phoenix sub-markets. The company specializes in residential site selection and development, with a specific concentration on urban revitalization and community development that converts underutilized infill land sites into thriving, vibrant urban neighborhoods. As a privately held company, New Leaf Communities has pursued new development opportunities individually and in conjunction with highly regarded partners, such as Watt Communities.
Watt Communities is our residential land development and home building division at Watt Companies. Led by Scott Watt (Chairman) and Howard Press (President), and managed by a talented team of professionals, Watt Companies for more than half a century has remained steadfast to the core values of founder Ray Watt and his devotion to integrity, responsibility and fairness. These values continue today, serving Watt Communities, its partners and its homebuyers to the highest degree. Originally established as a Los Angeles-based infill homebuilder, Watt Communities has grown into a regional residential development company—highly regarded as a premium quality builder of new home neighborhoods ranging from entry-level and workforce housing to high-end luxury residences. Over nearly two decades, Watt Communities has also expanded into independent divisions that operate under the direction of local experts but are supported centrally by Watt Communities. These regional divisions include the Watt Communities brand in Southern and Northern California, the Palisades Development arm in the Washington D.C. area, and Watt Communities of Arizona in the metro Phoenix area. Watt Communities is recognized in each of these markets for its homebuilding expertise and its ability to add quality, value and Ray Watt’s trademark of integrity and responsibility at every step of the building process.
