The Neighborhood 

This home is located within the southern section of the Holdeman Neighborhood which was built by Siesta Homes in the late 1950s as the first phase of the neighborhood. One of the most unique qualities about the Holdeman Neighborhood is that it features more cul-de-sacs than any other neighborhood in Tempe 85281. The neighborhood was skillfully designed to include many sidewinding streets to discourage traffic and keep the neighborhood quiet and peaceful. In addition, Siesta Homes originally offered 36 exterior design concepts to give each home a unique and custom look. Many of the homes still feature the exterior exposed block or bricks, steep gable hoods over the windows with scrolled fascia board, and the original diamond pane windows. These qualities personify the "Mid-Century Modern" theme that is becoming ever more popular these days.

The Holdeman Neighborhood is part of the greater NW Tempe Neighborhoods Heritage District. The neighborhoods within this area have enjoyed a resurgence in recent years as owning an authentic mid-century ranch home coupled with the close proximity to Downtown Tempe has become increasingly desirable. Moreover, there are a couple of upcoming changes that are going to be a major boon for these neighborhoods: (1) Clark Park Community Pool and Park Renovation,  and (2) The Broadway Corridor Revitalization Plan / Tempe Maker District.

Clark Park Community Pool and Park Renovation: The City of Tempe has elaborate plans to bring back the Clark Park Community Pool, which was previously closed in 2008 due to the Financial Crises. The City plans to build a completely new multi-functional pool with lap lanes, beach entry with splash elements, water slide, adjacent pool house, and new recreation center. There will also be a completely new re-design for the entire park that will consist of new walkways/pathways, upgraded Community Garden, new playground, renovated ramadas, and several other new or upgraded amenities. Clark Park is the closest park to this home, which is roughly a ten-minute walk away. 


Broadway Corridor Revitalization Plan / Tempe Maker District: There are current plans for a future streetscape project for Broadway Road, between Priest Drive and Mill Ave. As part of the City's Broadway Corridor Revitalization Plan, this section of Broadway Road will undergo a major restoration. This may include new bicycle lanes, larger sidewalks, more shade trees, and new street medians with public art. The area is also branded the "Tempe Maker District" to help encourage future developments within the Broadway Corridor with an emphasis on attracting local Tempe-based businesses. Given that the Holdeman Neighborhood is located adjacent to Broadway Road, between Priest Drive and Hardy Dr, this would be a boon to the community. All in all, the Holdeman Neighborhood is shaping up to be one of the most desirable locations in all of Tempe!
