Queen Creek, Arizona


By adhering to the Town of Queen Creek’s big box ordinance and working carefully with staff on their downtown overlays the 65 acre mixed-use project reinforces a small town aesthetic by advocating superior planning, building design and site amenities. Major clustering of the retail buildings backing toward diagonal local connector Rittenhouse allowed the development to face the town center and addressed the important concern of locating loading and service areas away from quieter pedestrian areas.


Architectural character for the center carefully takes its cues from the small-town characteristics of historic Queen Creek.  The overall project character promotes the uniqueness of an urban village, with emphasis on western territorial and Victorian influences.  Large single use buildings are broken into smaller pieces which are easily identifiable as entries, porticos, arcades, or towers.  Large, uninterrupted wall planes are minimized, and all sides of structures visible from adjacent streets are given architectural emphasis.  The design character also allows for numerous roof forms including gables, hipped roofs, flat cornices, and dormers.  This variety gives the project a unique flavor and be consistent with a village concept. 


Pedestrian amenities found throughout the project include shaded and misted walkways, courtyards, unique seating and public art installations by local artist Dave Brant, celebrating the equestrian lifestyle of Queen Creek.
