Developer K. Hovnanian Homes is seeking approval of project architectural building elevations for two, single-family product types within a proposed community in Scottsdale, Silverstone at Pinnacle Peak (AZEBX, Jan. 29, 2016).
The request was made to the City of Scottsdale Development Review Board. Silverstone at Pinnacle Peak is a planned, 174 single-family home community on 24 acres at the SWC of Pinnacle Peak Road and 74th Street.
The project proposes two separate housing types:
- 76 single-family, fee-simple duplex housing units;
- 98 single-family attached, fee-simple ownership residential units that are non-structurally connected to appear and function in a traditional townhouse configuration (private ownership of the lot/land, at least two sides open).
The duplex units are a mix of single-story/single-story, single-story/two-story, and two-story/two-story building configurations. Units range in size from 2,100SF up to 3,500SF and feature two-four bedrooms with open floor plans. Each unit has a private, two-car, side-by-side garage and private entryway. Private covered patios are featured on each home.
The elevation styles draw upon the regional Spanish character (Ranch Territorial) in addition to modern desert agrarian style (Desert Ranch). The elevations were designed to resemble a single large estate of common character. Mechanical equipment for the duplex units will be ground mounted and screened by low CMU walls.
Silverstone is the former site of the Rawhide western theme park, which opened in the 1970s. The area’s developed parcels have been extensively reworked to mitigate the impact of decades of use by the park, and the community now boasts a mixed-use of office, residential and retail uses.
