Palma Brisa is the last undeveloped parcel within the Foothills master-planned community located in the South Mountain hillsides of Ahwatukee. The Site is located at Desert Foothills Parkway and Frye Road and was originally dedicated to the Tempe Unified School District (TUSD) to be used for the development of a school. When TUSD decided to auction the land, they brought in a land planner who estimated the 63-acres could have a future use for 178 residential lots. Desert Vista 100, a subsidiary of Blandford Homes is the developer behind Palma Brisa and WOODPATEL’s primary client. WOODPATEL provided hillside entitlement, preliminary and final site plan, final plat, on- and off-site infrastructure construction document, and survey staking services. Led by Dan Matthews, the design team was able to design 197 units, 19 more than estimated. The site is currently under construction with model homes anticipated late fall of 2019.
