This is Fred Ball for Zions Bank, speaking on business.

Ralph Waldo Emerson said, "Nothing great was ever achieved without enthusiasm." I am excited about SunCrest Community, but not as enthusiastic as the prospective buyers who camped out in their cars and RVs for nine days, waiting for the first day to reserve and purchase their dream lot. Those buyers knew they had found something great.

SunCrest is considered a hot commodity because it's a master-planned community of 3,800 acres, with 50 percent of the land preserved as open space. Ty McCutcheon, SunCrest vice president of Sales and Marketing, tells me the community offers diverse housing types for all types of people ranging from young couples to empty nesters.

Another great thing about SunCrest is its location and environment. The community sits atop Traverse Ridge between Draper and Alpine, halfway between Salt Lake and Provo. Ty tells me the community is like a mountain retreat, with a trail network that winds through the trees, passes the wildlife and provides hiking, biking and snowshoeing. Ty thinks it's great that SunCrest is within five minutes of I-15 and homeowners are excited about the eight-mile access road from SunCrest to Utah County.

This project began in 1999 and Ty tells me it is expected to be complete in 12 years. The master plan includes locations of neighborhoods, schools, churches and parks. Currently, 750 residents call SunCrest their home. Developers still plan on constructing a clubhouse, a neighborhood market and capsizing at 3,800 homes.

SunCrest is a beautiful place with a village green in the heart of its community, which is a three-acre gathering place with a gazebo, a natural amphitheater, a jungle gym for the kids and a stream that meanders to the ice-skating pond.

The community is named SunCrest because, according to Ty, it is the first place and last place in the valley where the sun rises and sets.

For Zions Bank, I'm Fred Ball. I'm speaking on business.
