A 30-home special-needs housing development opening in spring 2019 hopes to give parents of grown children with special needs peace of mind. Luna Azul is a gated housing community under construction in north Phoenix designed to foster safety, community and independence for people with disabilities.
Developer Mark Roth spearheaded the project after he was disappointed by options when looking for housing for his 18-year-old daughter with special needs. The community is designed as a “pocket neighborhood” where homes face a shared green space. Luna Azul will have 24-hour onsite staff and will host events — from dances to exercise clubs, dinners and lectures — for its residents.
“I wanted my daughter to have a realistic shot at a social life and to feel like she belonged,” Roth said. “This community is meant to surround her and everyone else with friends and neighbors of different backgrounds.”
The two- and three-bedroom cottage homes are expected to sell in the $300,000 to mid- $500,000 price range. Luna Azul is being built on the corner of 16th Street and Wahalla Lane, south of Beardsley Road, off the Loop 101 freeway in Phoenix.
