As we reflect on the last year of construction, we become even more excited about all of the finishes and details going up around the site today. Where we had nothing but dirt in some areas at the start of this year, the future of Culdesac Tempe is really coming to life throughout our first phase of construction. We take great care to create this "first of its kind" community with both beauty, functionality, and overall resident experience in mind. As we approach our first wave of closeouts, these finishes are what tie all of those initiatives together.
In stark contrast to the dirt pathways that marked our site in January, hardscape finishes have been moving quickly, with pavers installed throughout our commercial areas. We selected pavers as the primary topdress throughout Culdesac Tempe for their cooler temperatures in comparison to solid concrete. Alongside their functionality in the hot Arizona summers, pavers are a more colorful and inviting hardscape option. We’re very excited about reaching finish grade in our commercial areas!
We’re so lucky to have a group of incredible artists creating pieces throughout our site to make Culdesac Tempe beautiful everywhere our residents and visitors turn. The stunning mural pictured above is the first of many pieces that will characterize our neighborhood. Be on the look out for more in-depth details about the fantastic artists who made this possible in the new year.
We’ve hand-selected plants that are harmonius with our varied desert climate — from beautiful native grasses and trees to cacti and more in all of our landscape areas. Not only are these plants well equipped to thrive in our local climate, but their unique characteristics help tie the natural beauty of the Phoenix valley into our development.
As we continue with fixtures and finishes in our residential units, we can begin visualizing unique lives unfolding within our community. Our first batch of apartments has been receiving paint, cabinets, countertops, and light fixtures in recent months. We’ve chosen our interior finishes to match the bright and lively atmosphere of our neighborhood with light colors throughout the units.
