Pardee Homes is a residential home building company founded in 1921 which currently builds new homes and planned communities in Southern California and the Las Vegas, NV metro region. The company was founded by George Pardee Sr. He was joined by his three sons, George M. Pardee Jr, Hoyt Pardee and J. Douglas Pardee in the Los Angeles housing boom after World War II.[1] They began building in southern Nevada in 1952, selling affordable homes to veterans for $1.00 down. The homes in this first Las Vegas development were sold out in the opening weekend.[2]

Pardee became a wholly owned subsidiary of Weyerhaeuser Corporation in 1969, one of 5 such Weyerhaeuser companies under the WRECO division. On July 8, 2014 WRECO merged with TRI Pointe Homes now called the TRI Pointe Group, Inc.[3][4] The Pardee Homes headquarters is located in Pasadena, CA. Other offices include San Diego, CA, Corona, CA, Valencia, CA, and Las Vegas, Nevada. The company is currently developing new housing tracts throughout Southern California, including San Diego,[5] with North County, Bonsall, California, and Santee, California as well as in the Inland Empire,[6] including Lake Elsinore, French Valley, California and Beaumont and in north Los Angeles County in Santa Clarita,[7] along with Southern Nevada[8] including Las Vegas, North Las Vegas, Henderson, NV,[9] and Summerlin.[10]

Green Building[edit]

Pardee Homes began building energy-efficient, green homes in 1998 and introduced LivingSmart®, a green building program, in 2001.[11] Pardee Homes received the California Governor's Environmental and Economic Leadership Award (GEELA) in 2005, for its sustainable practices.[12] In May 2011, Pardee Homes became California's first production homebuilder to commit to getting an entire community of homes certified to the National Green Building Standard™ (NGBS) by the NAHB Research Center, and internationally recognized, independent third party. Pardee's new LivingSmart® Homes in Santa Clarita's Fair Oaks Ranch®, will all be built to the Gold-level criteria of the NGBS, inspected at least twice by an accredited green verifier, and Green Certified by the NAHB Research Center.[13]

In 2013, Certified Green Professional and Pardee Homes VP of Marketing Joyce Mason was one of 15 judges in China's inaugural Solar Decathlon, a joint effort of the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) and China's National Administration of Energy. Organized by Peking University and staged in Datong in Shanxi Province, the Decathlon's Solar Village showcased 20 homes created by college and university student teams who represented 35 nationalities in countries from six continents.[14]
