Douglas Ranch buys Trillium along Buckeye’s Sun Valley Parkway.

The principals of Douglas Ranch, a 35,000-acre project west of the White Tank Mountains, bought the 3,000-acre Trillium project for nearly $86.3 million in two transactions that closed this week, real estate records say.

Buckeye city government sounds like Payton Place but they sure have ambitious plans.

The acquisition of Trillium gives the developers frontage on the Sun Valley Parkway and the chance to develop both projects in tandem so they have similar themes. Site work has started on Trillium. Douglas Ranch is not under construction. Together, the two projects have been approved for more than 90,000 homes, Buckeye planners say.
