The Cotino community’s 360-degree views of the San Jacinto mountains inspired the Walt Disney Imagineering team’s creative design. It will feature a mix of natural and man-made elements bringing the spirit of the desert to life.

Disney previously teased Cotino’s various parks, including Longtable Park. The park’s name comes from Walt Disney’s visits to Coachella Valley. He would join his neighbors for a group breakfast and conversation around a friendly long table.

The first model homes are now under construction. Built by Shea Homes, these model homes will give future residents a glimpse of the Cotino community lifestyle with three different options. Some home designs will feature flex and loft spaces while also encouraging indoor-outdoor living with entry courtyards and covered terraces designed to immerse future residents in the beauty of the region. 

There are different elevations and floorplans to choose from. More options are coming soon from additional homebuilders.
