Cantalena Community - Scott & Antelope

Cantalena Menifee MapThat vast expanse of land along Antelope Rd, with Scott Rd at the south, and Garbani Rd at the north, will one day host a housing community called "Cantalena".

The proposed project is part of Specific Plan No. 334, which proposes the development of 158.7-acres into 10 planning areas for residential and non-residential uses.

The builder is Bluestone Communities, who developed the Mapleton community south of Scott Rd, in Murrieta.

Cantalena is not actually on Antelope Rd, but about 1,000 feet east of it.

The plans calls for a mixture of medium density units (single family homes), and high-density units (condos or apartments), similar to how Mapleton is currently developed.

It's also going to create a new 12 acre elementary school. It's going to create a 14.6 acre park, which should become Menifee's second largest.

The park will include a 20,000 sq ft "community center", which will include an 8,000 sq ft gymnasium for basketball, volleyball, parties, and community events, four to five meeting rooms ranging from 1,000-1,500 sq ft with modern audio/visual capabilities, a commercial kitchen for event catering, a satellite management office, storage space for recreational and maintenance equipment, a snack bar, restrooms and shaded outdoor seating.

As far as when it's going to begin development, not for awhile. Bentley Kerr of Bluestone Communities tells us that residential construction is on hold until the market conditions improve. Even though grading could theoretically start as early as mid-2008, it's unlikely.

But, that's what's in store for that parcel of land.
