Ascent at the Phoenician Resort

The 315-acre iconic resort is in the heart of Phoenix in the shadows of majestic Camelback Mountain. It has been an Arizona landmark and tourist destination for the last 30 years. The new owner Host Hotels & Resorts proposed a Planned Unit Development through City of Phoenix to create a regulatory framework. The golf course was redesigned from a 27- hole to 18-hole course which provided developable land for high density residential. WOODPATEL assisted with reimaging the iconic property through the rezoning efforts and was responsible for the master planning including drainage, water, and wastewater. In addition, WOODPATEL was responsible for the new golf course engineering and the numerous residential projects including single family homes, condominiums, and amenities.
