Jesse Owens Village
Jun 10th, 2008
In response to a City of Phoenix Request for Proposals (RFP) for the development of a new mixed-income community on a 9.8-acre site in South Phoenix, the Stardust Center developed this proposal for a compact, pedestrian-friendly community of 90 first-time homebuyer town homes.
The plan includes live-work units along Jesse Owens Parkway, and one-third of the units have the potential to accommodate an accessory rental unit. The site plan incorporates narrow, privately-owned streets and linked open spaces with access to the Western Canal’s trail system. The project was planned as a green community, incorporating multiple strategies for energy savings and water-use reduction.
