Christopher Todd Communities Built By Taylor Morrison Breaks Ground On Paradisi In Surprise

City Of Surprise Police Department Animal Control Unit Honored In Ceremonial Groundbreaking

SURPRISE, Ariz. (September 14, 2021) — Single-Story Rental Community leader Christopher Todd Communities and America’s Most Trusted® Home Builder Taylor Morrison Home Corporation (NYSE: TMHC) have broken ground on Christopher Todd Communities At Paradisi, located at the Loop 303 and Cactus Road in Surprise. Marking the third jointly-branded luxury rental community in Arizona since the two companies entered a strategic partnership in 2019, this is the first such community located within a Taylor Morrison masterplan which will also contain traditional homes for sale. It is also the first community to publicly recognize the City of Surprise Police Department for their important animal education outreach.

Christopher Todd Communities At Paradisi is comprised of pet-friendly one- and two-bedroom smart homes with private backyards and doggy doors, along with resort-style amenities such as a pool, spa, Event Lawn and Bark Park. As part of the groundbreaking, the companies recognized the City of Surprise Police Department’s Animal Control Unit for their efforts to promote the importance of being a responsible pet owner. “We know that pets are children for many families. As a pet-friendly community, we appreciate the work done by the Surprise Police Department to encourage people to keep their animals safe and show them the love the animals crave. The partnership of Christopher Todd and Taylor Morrison is honored to provide a $2000 donation to the Surprise Police Department to further their educational cause,” said Todd Wood, CEO of Christopher Todd Communities. Surprise Police Chief Benny Piña was on hand to accept the donation, along with members of the Animal Control and K-9 units.

“Being a responsible pet owner is much more than providing food, water and shelter to your pet. Owning a pet is a lifetime commitment that brings with it significant obligations – to the pet, the family and to the greater community in which they live. Through responsible pet ownership, owners and neighbors can live together in safety and harmony. We appreciate Christopher Todd Communities and Taylor Morrison’s support to help us deliver that important message,” said Sergeant Joseph Kopronica, who oversees that unit for the Surprise Police Department.

The larger Paradisi masterplan will encompass approximately 149 total acres of which 16 acres will be separately gated, include 193 rental homes and have its own amenity offerings. Taylor Morrison will be building 560 traditional for-sale homes on varying lot sizes. Development is underway.

“Taylor Morrison is excited to pair the complimentary for-sale and for-rent housing segments to create a best-in-class masterplan community that offers diversity of product offerings for consumers regardless of life stage. Demand for both the Taylor Morrison and Christopher Todd brands across the Phoenix area has been exceedingly strong and we expect the same at Paradisi,” said Darin Rowe, President of Taylor Morrison’s Build-To-Rent Operations.

Paradisi is located along the Loop 303 corridor, where robust growth is occurring. It is convenient to employment, shopping and major transportation corridors. Christopher Todd Communities At Paradisi will open in early 2023. For information specific to the Single-Story Rental Community, Christopher Todd At Paradisi, visit
