It took vision (and five years) to transform a nearly 50-year-old, partially completed townhome project into a modern, award-winning multifamily community. Where countless developers saw the former Las Casas Contentas subdivision as a partially abandoned lot and aging eyesore along 59th Avenue in Glendale, Visiquest Properties saw an opportunity to bring a best-in-class apartment community to an area with high demand for attainably priced workforce housing.
The result is 59 Evergreen, a 96-unit garden-style apartment community that features high-end smart home technology and family/pet friendly amenities. 59 Evergreen’s tagline is “At the Intersection of Past and Future” and the Visiquest team’s design seamlessly blended buildings constructed in 1974 with new construction, resulting in a National Green Buildings Standards certified community that was recently named the 2023 Arizona Multihousing Association Garden Apartment Development of the Year.
“We gravitate to projects that require vision, determination and intellectual challenge and 59 Evergreen was all of those things, and more,” said Joel Broder, Founder and Principal at Visiquest Properties. “We are proud of how 59 Evergreen turned out and what this community will mean to its residents and the City of Glendale.”
Today, 59 Evergreen features 1, 2, and 3-bedroom modern units that have open-concept floor plans that maximize space by eliminating hallways and fixed kitchen islands. The interiors feature durable Class A finishes, 9-foot ceilings, quartz counters with tile backsplashes, stainless appliances and ceiling fans, ice makers, generous cabinets with Thermafoil doors, walk-in closets, walk-in showers (in some units) and full-size energy efficient washers and dryers. There are huge patios or balconies as well as outdoor storage, too.
