BUFFALO, NY—Local home builder Forbes Capretto Homes opened its newest community of single-family homes in Grand Island on October 20, 2022. The launch of Island Meadows was celebrated by one of the largest group of prospective buyers the builder had ever welcomed at a community opening.

Sarah Hubbard, New Home Sales Consultant for Forbes Capretto Homes, said she had fielded many calls prior to the opening day, but was still impressed by the turnout at the Forbes Capretto Homes Design Center in its Cheektowaga headquarters. At the end of the day, 4 of the 22 homes to be built in Island Meadows received commitments.

“Grand Island is a great location that appeals to a wide variety of people, from growing families to empty nesters,” says Hubbard. She added that Forbes Capretto Homes’ other Grand Island community, New England Estates, launched in 2020 and sold out a year later.

With a population of fewer than 22,000 residents, Grand Island is a quiet haven that provides a variety of amenities for recreation, shopping, dining, entertainment, services, and quality schools. Just 10 minutes from Niagara Falls and 20 minutes from Downtown Buffalo, Island Meadow offers convenient accessibility, including the I-190 interchange, which is 4 miles away.

Island Meadow is situated on the northern edge of this island town— at the end of Old Carriage House Road and between Grand Island High School and Veterans Park. The new community is minutes from the Fashion Outlet Mall, River Oaks Golf Club, Niagara Amusement Park and Splash World, Buckhorn State Park, Beaver Island State Park, marinas, and boating clubs.

The homes, which start in the high $400,000s, range from 1,800 to more than 3,000 square feet, with designs for both single-level and multi-story homes. Forbes Capretto Homes released two new home designs for Island Meadows: The Cambridge and The Hawthorne.

Available homesites provide another broad variety of choices—from half-acre to much larger estate lots. In addition, Island Meadow is surrounded by a conservation area, enhancing the privacy for the residents there.

“This enthusiastic response to Island Meadows proves that now is still a good time to buy a new home,” said Hubbard. She added that Forbes Capretto Homes is offering limited time Fall Savings promotion for Island Meadows buyers. The company gives buyers the choice of using the $10,000 credit toward the purchase of options or to take advantage of their interest rate buydown program.
