Unique Attributes

Visiquest worked closely with the Bell family to monetize this legacy asset which was purchased in 1960.  A significant amount of the property was hillside and not readily developable due to the City of Phoenix hillside zoning ordinance.  Visiquest successfully rezoned 9-acres of the property to C-2 with height and density waivers allowing for 3-stories and 26 dwelling units per acre.   In addition, Visiquest received a hillside grading waiver and building setback variances to permit development of a senior living community. The balance of the land, 30-acres, was conceptually site planned for 14 custom home sites that reached nearly to the top of Shaw Butte. Visiquest then worked with the Phoenix Mountain Preservation Council and surrounding neighbors to convince the City to acquire the land for inclusion into the surrounding Phoenix Mountain Preserve.
