Crimson Creek - Mesa, AZ
An undeveloped multi-family site between Highway 60 and an existing single family neighborhood seemed to be a difficult transition zone and a challenging planning problem. The Galloway Group created a site plan concept utilizing an enhanced wash area as an activity corridor and open space buffer to an existing lower density residential neighborhood to the south. Two single family home configurations were planned around additional open space parks and greenbelts, providing connectivity from individual neighborhoods to the activity corridor. The homes were designed so that garages faced private alleys or motorcourts, creating pedestrian friendly streets. The site plan achieved a net density of 9.4 units per acre.
