"We are excited to introduce our newest community in Fresno, one of the most popular places to live in the Central Valley. Fresno offers an outstanding quality of life with rich culture, exceptional schools and thriving job market. Now is a great time to take advantage of grand opening opportunities at Locan Pointe," said Allen Bennett, Century Communities' Central California division president.

Locan Pointe will introduce its Symphony Collection of homes. Foor plans range in size from 1,624 to 2,628 square feet, 2-5 bedrooms and 2-4 baths.

U.S. News ranks Fresno as one of the "Best Places to Live" and attracts all types of home buyers. Fresno is named for the abundant ash trees (Spanish: fresno) lining the San Joaquin River and has grown from a small railroad stop in 1872 to a prosperous metropolitan area. The community has a thriving and diverse job market, affordable housing and a rich cultural heritage which includes an art festival, classic car shows, film festival, eclectic dining scene, minor league baseball team and the largest reenactment of the Civil War in the west coast of the United States.

Locan Pointe and Fresno are nestled in California's famous San Joaquin Valley noted for its large-scale agricultural production. Fresno also is close to popular attractions like the Shinzen Japanese Gardens, San Joaquin River, Millerton Lake, Kings Canyon National Park and Sequoia National Park.

Developed by Century Communities, Locan Pointe is in southeast Fresno and east of the Fresno Yosemite International Airport.
