The Willows - Gilbert, AZ
K Hovnanian Homes of Arizona controlled approximately 80 acres within the Gilbert Gateway in a rapidly growing area of town that had been slated to be developed according to newly adopted Neo-Traditional principles, which mandated a minimum target density even though market research studies discouraged any attached product types. The Galloway Group's development plan achieved 7.5 units per acre with more than 20% common open space orienting small scale neighborhoods of mixed home types around a large Central Quad centrally located and at the visual terminus of the major entry streets. Several open pocket parks and greenbelts provided pedestrian connectivity throughout the Community. The plan provided a total of 613 homes, each designed to minimize the visual impact of the garage along tree-lined neighborhood streets. The Galloway Group provided master planning, conceptual architectural design and conceptual landscape and community theming for the Willows, and provided entitlement support for the approval of a Planned Area Development (PAD).
