For over 30 years, Empire Communities has been committed to enriching homeowners’ lives through carefully chosen locations, purposeful home designs and a personalized homebuying experience.


The company is offering new homes in San Antonio for a wide variety of buyers. First-time home owners looking at master-planned communities and experienced home buyers looking at homes with more land can find what they are looking for with Empire Communities.


“We’ve built homes that make everyday life richer and more sustainable, with enviable designs where smart space planning and quality building meet,” said Division President Terry Shuffler.


Empire Communities is offering new homes in several different areas within San Antonio, including:


  • Cibolo Canyons is an active, master-planned community with access to exceptional amenities and a convenient location. Located in North San Antonio, homes in this community start from the high $500,000s.
  • Arcadia Ridge is a family-friendly oasis community nestled on 700-acres of scenic landscapes. Located in West San Antonio, homes in this community start at $300,000.
  • Everly Estates is a community of estate homes located on half-acre homesites in East San Antonio. This community is ideal for buyers looking for a little more space, while living in their dream home, with home plans starting from the $500,000s


“The open-concept floor plans in the product offerings make for functional living no matter what your lifestyle,” Shuffler said.


Each home design has a unique style so individuals can find the right home to meet their needs and design preferences. Empire Communities also offers individuals customization options in their homes, giving individuals choices with items such as flooring, cabinets, countertops and backsplashes.


“Thoughtfully designed to allow for flexibility and personalization, each package within the collection offers a distinct style while providing homeowners with the opportunity to infuse their own preferences seamlessly,” Shuffler said. “This flexibility not only ensures a tailored living experience but also contributes to the efficiency of Empire’s building process.”

Buying a home can be daunting for individuals. To help future homeowners with the process, Empire Communities has model homes open at each of the three communities.


“Prospective homeowners can walk through our model homes and witness firsthand how our home designs come to life and see how the interior selections transforms the space, creating a unique atmosphere in every room, Shuffler said.


All three of Empire Communities’ neighborhoods in San Antonio have unique features that set them apart. The Cibolo Canyons community offers a golf course, tennis courts, a water park and a fitness room. Arcadia Ridge offers walking trails, playgrounds, great schools and a lagoon-style pool. Amenities at Everly Estates include oversized home lots and a wealth of green spaces.


“Empire Communities has established a tradition of creating prestigious, award-winning new homes and communities,” Shuffler said. “For over 30 years, we’ve encouraged our home owners to dream bigger and live better. As one of North America’s largest family-owned and operated builders, we are proud to bring homeownership to life for hundreds of families.”
