Project Description: Galleria Palms is an existing 33 acre Class A multi-family apartment community consisting of 568 units in 40 two-story buildings.  The site is located at the northeast corner of I-10 and US 60 at 1600 West La Jolla Drive in Tempe, Arizona.

The purpose of this project was to accommodate the proposed ADOT widening that required an additional right-of-way along the western boundary of the project.  ADOT has instituted a condemnation process for a portion of the Galleria Palms development, approximately 6.30 acres, in order to obtain the additional area for right-of-way expansion.  This acquisition impacted 10 buildings, and related parking, recreation amenities, vehicular circulation, site access, site security, and site utilities.

Our role was to coordinate the proposed right-of-way take line alignment, revisions to the existing site based on the proposed take line, revised entitlements, and the infrastructure, civil design, and landscape architecture necessary to restore this Class A apartment community to the same level of quality and design.
