The Neighborhood 

In 1990, this home was completely destroyed from a fire except for the exterior block walls. David Williams purchased this home from the previous owner and designed and rebuilt the home. Mr. Williams had remodeled or custom-built several homes in the neighborhood, including the two English Manor style homes at 1712 & 1716 S Roosevelt Street. He also remodeled the home across the street at 602 W 16th Street. His signature style maximizes the use of indoor/outdoor space—hence the addition of the cabana bathroom—accessible from the patio area. 

This home is located within the northern part of the Clark Park Neighborhood which was originally built by Del Webb in early 1950s as part of the “Campus Homes" subdivision. These were the first ever tract homes built in Tempe. Legend has it—renowned Mid-Century Architect—Ralph Haver, originally designed these homes. Many of the homes in the neighborhood have been well preserved and still feature Ralph Haver’s iconic nine-pane window, which is prevalent in other Haver Hoods, such as the Camelback Park Estates in Scottsdale. 

The Clark Park Neighborhood volunteer group has worked on a number of initiatives to help maintain its neighborhood charm and great community. Just recently—the neighborhood added new public art by decorating three irrigation standpipes. One of those standpipes happens to be located directly behind this home—alongside Roosevelt Street. The neighborhood volunteer group have also opened the Clark Park Community Garden in 2015 and Clark Park Dog Park in 2016. 

The Clark Park 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!
