Las Sendas is a uniquely designed 4,200-acre master-planned community in the desert foothills of eastern Mesa. Las Sendas means pathways and offers lush vegetation and century-old saguaros. The community connects through miles of natural desert and hard surface pathways for walking, and biking. With careful planning, large areas of desert were preserved as dedicated open space. The community offers a healthy lifestyle with multi-generation activities. WOODPATEL designed roadways and grading to minimize the development footprint within the pristine desert upland areas. The site is upstream of the CAP canal and the County’s Spook Hill Retention Structure, making drainage a critical component of the community’s design. A system of online and offline detention basins takes advantage of the site’s natural and developed features. Highlights of WOODPATEL services included infrastructure master planning, Section 404 permitting, over 10 miles of infrastructure design, and 25 private gated neighborhoods within the community.
