Canyon Oaks - Chandler, AZ
A 15.8 acre multi-family site had sat vacant; it consisted of a residual piece of land within a planned single family neighborhood. The surrounding residents vehemently opposed multi-family or any attached residential product that they perceived as high density and therefore incompatible with the adjacent single family homes. Looking to capture some of the allowable density in a manner that was acceptable to the nearby residents, Jackson Properties contracted with The Galloway Group to plan and design a winning concept. The solution was a single family cluster home design that achieved a density of nearly 7 units/acre within a gated neighborhood. The plan included a large open turf retention area with a tot lot and a common recreation center with a pool and spa. The floor plan designs included three out of four single story homes, which created a low density character. Homes ranged in size from 975 sq. ft. to 1,725 sq. ft.
