The Neighborhood 

This home is located within the southern part of the Marilyn Ann Neighborhood which was originally built by Suggs Homes in the early 1960s as part of the "Parkway Manor" subdivision. At the time, Suggs Homes was considered one of the most reputable builders in the Valley. Standard features that came with Suggs Homes include: all copper plumbing, steel reinforced foundation, reinforced concrete floors with steel mesh, exterior walls insulated with foil back sheet rock, etc. The above photos are from the original Suggs Homes sales brochure which show the different floor plans and a detailed list of all the standard features from the builder.

The Marilyn Ann and Clark Park Neighborhood volunteer groups have worked on a number of recent initiatives to help maintain its neighborhood charm and great community. One such effort, dubbed the "Make Tempe Shady" campaign, was a program which the neighborhood was awarded grant money from the City to be used towards planting new trees throughout the neighborhood. The neighborhood volunteer group have also opened the Clark Park Community Garden in 2015 and Clark Park Dog Park in 2016. There are current discussions with the City of Tempe about bringing back the community pool at Clark Park.

The Marilyn Ann 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!
