This 75-unit tax-credit project creates a campus for Arizona Deaf Seniors who use American Sign Language (ASL) as their primary form of communication. Due to a tight budget, this project is designed primarily of wood frame construction with stucco.

The project includes a master campus plan for a dynamic infill site along the new light rail line in Tempe, Arizona. The master plan includes the 75-unit four-story apartment building, as well as a 60 unit Cooperative building to the east. A large community room with kitchen on the first floor will serve deaf seniors from throughout the Valley of the Sun. Each four-story building incorporates retail and community spaces on the ground level, and special deaf communication systems.
