Car-Free Lifestyle for Culdesac Tempe Tenants

by Mike Hunter

Planned to open in 2021, Culdesac is a $140-million project with 636 residential units, 24,000 square feet of retail and 35,000 square feet of amenities on 16 acres. Residents will not have private cars or parking spaces although the retail area will have ample parking with 150 spaces for retail visitors and resident guests. In typical developments, the parking lots often dictate the design — and without this constraint, Culdesac Tempe is able to offer three times the average amount of green space, along with friendly courtyards and community spaces, contributing to a walkable lifestyle. 

The development is designed around the mobility needs of residents, with on-site light rail station, dedicated rideshare pick-up zones, on-site scooters, bikes, and on-site carshares for weekend trips.

Culdesac is appealing to residents all over the country. The national waitlist is comprised of 40 percent of people outside of Arizona.
