Principal Asset Management is moving ahead with plans to develop a formerly commercially zoned property northeast of 32nd Street and Shea Boulevard into a modern 146-unit multifamily property after receiving approval from the Phoenix City Council last month.
The 4 acre View 32 complex will feature a three-story building with studio, one-be and two-bedroom units in a gated community.
The development’s proximity to current transportation outlets and a future proposed High Capacity Transit expansion in the area add to the location’s desirability. Prior to the creation of the State Route 51 freeway, 32nd St. was a major north-south corridor in the area.
One stated goal of the View 32 project is to help bring new, high quality housing into the area and make it palatable to other new development and modernization efforts.
Landscaping and aesthetics are intended to promote a live/work/play environment, particularly given the access to 32nd St and the nearby Phoenix Mountain Preserve. A variety of trees and drought-resistant plants will be put in place, and the northern perimeter will feature a double row of trees.
Featured trees will include palm and palo verde, along with ironwood and others. Plants will include agave, lantana, bougainvillea, saguaro and other cactus.
Complex amenities are planned to include a pool and courtyard areas, a spa, clubhouse, barbeque and fire pit areas, as well a dog part, fitness center and business facilities for residents.
View 32 will be developed by Principal Asset Management. Todd & Associates provides both the architecture and landscape architecture services.
