South Phoenix Village Revitalization

Jun 11th, 2008

The City of Phoenix issued a Request for Proposals (RFP) in 2007 for affordable, detached, single-family infill housing in South Phoenix Village, a distressed neighborhood undergoing reinvestment and targeted revitalization by the city.  The Stardust Center teamed with Mandalay Investments, a locally-owned development and construction firm, to respond to the RFP.  The Center’s design solution utilizes narrow 26′-wide homes on 36′-wide lots to enable the development of 121 units on the city’s existing 88 lots.  The infill designs include both front-loaded and alley-loaded parking, and incorporate L-shaped courtyards  to create more climate-responsive, family-oriented homes.  The Center’s submission was a finalist in the RFP selection process.
