Phoenician Resort to Convert Golf Course for Homes


Phoenician Resort to Convert Golf Course for Homes

The Phoenician Resort is seeking to convert part of its championship golf course for hundreds of new homes as part of a major redesign for the 315-acre property at the base of Camelback Mountain. The City of Phoenix will consider rezoning the land to make way for the development of 382 houses, townhomes, condos, and resort casitas according to the City’s proposal. In exchange, the resort’s 27 holes of golf would be reduced to 18 to make space for the new residential development. Wood Patel has been brought onboard the monumental development as Civil engineer.

This would be a major change for the resort and its decades-old golf course, but the land has been long-approved for the construction of 321 of the planned homes, according to the project’s representing land-use attorney Paul Gilbert. The plans follow a Valley-wide trend of golf-course owners considering redevelopment of their land.

The proposed development comes as the Phoenician new owners Host Camelback, LLC are planning a substantial makeover for the resort itself, including renovated guest rooms and public areas such as the pool, lobby, and restaurants in the coming year. Much of the new housing construction is proposed for the interior resort property sections. Condominiums would face Camelback Road, and no apartments are included in the plan.

Host Camelback, LLC  expects the approval process to last five-to-six months and wants to begin construction as soon as possible, says Gilbert. The Phoenician seeks designation as a planned-unit development that would outline what is allowed on the property in addition to another plan change. Its expansive hundreds of acres make it among the biggest of those plans under the City’s consideration.
