Plans for a senior-living development at Mesa’s Eastmark are picking up speed, with about 900 homes expected to be move-in ready by early 2015.

The AV Homes 55-plus age-restricted community, which has yet to be named, will span about 310 acres of the 5-square-mile, mixed-use community.

Eastmark opened its first residential phase June 1 that will include resort, employment, recreation and commercial elements in addition to homes, said Karen Murray, vice president of sales and marketing for AV Homes.
