Miami builder has more homes coming near future Taiwan Semiconductor plant in north Phoenix


By: Angela Gonzales, Phoenix Business Journal

Hundreds of homes are being planned near the Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Co. Ltd.'s 1,128-acre manufacturing plant under construction near Interstate 17 and Loop 303 in north Phoenix.

In the first phase alone, TSMC is creating jobs for 1,900 people, giving homebuilders a captive audience of employees when production begins at the plant in 2024.

One of the nation's largest homebuilders has been working with the city of Phoenix on a 70-acre site along Interstate 17 south of Loop 303 long before TSMC announced plans to build a plant nearby, said Jeff Gunderson, senior vice president of land operations for Miami, Florida-based Lennar Corp.
