About Armory Park Del Sol
Armory Park Del Sol is a neighborhood located just south of Downtown Tucson, just east of 3rd Avenue between 13th Street & 16th Street. It is a solar neighborhood built by John Wesley Miller, started around 2002. Homes vary in size from around 1000 sf to about 1800 sf, featuring 2 or 3 bedrooms. Both one & two story homes are available in the neighborhood.
Looks like a Historic Bungalow but Green!
Each home is unique, and offers a historic aesthetic, many look like old bungalows that would have been built in the 1920s and 1930s. However, each home is extremely energy efficient & powered by photo-voltaic solar panels. The energy usage is estimated to be 66% less than an average home of the same size. All homes are built using universal design concepts, including wide doorways and hallways, no-step entry ways, barrier-free shower access, and hard floor coverings.
Amenities and Walkability
The development was planned to be pedestrian and bike friendly & encourages a close-knit community by placing the front of the homes facing each other with a wide sidewalk in between front yards. Rather than being a focal point, the garages are at the rear each home. Conveniently located, it is within biking and walking distance to downtown Tucson. The neighborhood is within the Tucson Unified School District and is serviced by Safford K-8 School, and Tucson High School.
