Here is an update on an exciting project in Coolidge, Arizona. Coolidge is a town of about 12,000 people 50 miles south of Phoenix. I’m working with a landowner there to develop about 60 acres into about 48 new 1 AC home sites. The houses will take on the rural character of the area, but will have a considerable amount of environmental systems included. Passive cooling strategies, orientations directed by solar panel applications, sensibly building smaller, use of easily maintained and long lasting materials, and clear connections to outdoor areas are all the main design goals.
There will likely be 3 plan options, and the initial sales price targets are in the $249,000 to $299,000 range. Here are some of the initial studies that were generated for the latest meeting with the City Officials.
