Scottsdale-based Shea Homes is seeking a Planned Unit Development (PUD) zoning request with the City of Phoenix for a residential community of up to 1,889 single family homes at the SEC of Tatum Boulevard and Grovers Avenue that will feature seven distinct neighborhoods.
The Shea at North Tatum PUD calls for the development of the 122-acre vacant property into seven individual and unique neighborhoods or parcels for the different home types. With a maximum of 1,889 homes, the developer suggests a target of 1,755 homes.
Shea proposes a mix of residential uses including single-family residential homes (attached/detached homes, stacked flats and duplexes), a parcel for traditional multi-family residences (multi-level/carriage-style residences and studios) and an “age-restricted” active lifestyle community for individuals 55 and over.
The construction of Shea at North Tatum is anticipated in three phases:
- Phase I: Gate house, neighborhood collector, linear park, fully developed parcels A, D and E and partially developed parcels C and F.
- Phase II: Fully developed parcel B and partially developed parcels C and F.
- Phase III: Multi-family.
The project is proposed with two primary access points. The access for the single family residential portion of the development will be along Tatum Boulevard. This access will feature a gated entrance that will transition to a median divided collector serving the six neighborhoods which are composed of both traditional single family and active lifestyle homes.
The neighborhood collector is planned with a boulevard-like median that is planned to incorporate amenities and lush landscaping. This streetscape scene will also include shaded, detached sidewalks and mature landscaped corridors to activate the streetscape and create a more pleasing environment for residents and guests.
While the Tatum access point is envisioned as the primary access, there will be three access points along the periphery with two gated, exit-only access points along Grovers Avenue and a gated emergency access only point along 52nd Street. A separate entrance is planned for the multi-family neighborhood at Bell Road. The separation of the primary access points is intended to internalize traffic to the respective community neighborhood.
