Bell Mirage Estates is a 60-unit affordable housing project owned and developed by Community Services of Arizona (CSA), a nonprofit organization. The project’s 5-acre site provides a pedestrian link to the adjacent Lizard Run recreational area. The 60 units are designed in a townhouse configuration which orients units to the street, sidewalks, internal amenities and neighboring park. Each of the community’s 12 buildings house four to six units each and are comprised of two and three bedroom units.

Architecturally the buildings are designed as traditional, flat-roofed desert dwellings with both traditional desert colors and contemporary desert-inspired accents. Reinforcing the traditional design concept, windows are recessed or shaded by overhangs. One-story as well as two-story elements are incorporated into the design for visual interest. The composition of different sized buildings with varied accent colors further creates a village character where internal front doors orient to an inviting green space and recreation complex at the core of the community.
