Along the highway that encircles the Phoenix metro area is a semi-vacant expanse of shops, homes and parking garages. The image being promoted for sales is one of arrival. You will be truly happy once you are here. The amenities are so enticing: the farmer’s market, proximity to destination shopping districts and of course, easy access to the highway. Obviously started prior to the recession, this development has remained in limbo for the last 4 years. Recently, these signs have been placed on the chain link fence that surrounds the barren desert floor that is adjacent to the highway and the development. It reminds me a bit of Arrested Development and the model home location of the Bluth’s development.
