Designed to blend with the historic architecture in Barrio Viejo

The Miramonte Barrio Viejo townhomes have been designed to blend with the historic Sonoran row house and territorial style architecture of the Barrio Viejo area. The garages face inward, allowing for the homes to be closer to the lot line, similar to traditional Sonoran row house architecture. The interior of the neighborhood features a private road constructed of pavers to access the garage spaces.

Locally designed

Lanning Architecture, a Tucson-based architecture firm, designed the project. Because the land is within the Barrio Historico Historic Zone, the design process took significantly longer to get the needed approval from the historic zone. The original plan of 15 units, designed by another local company, EXA Architects, called for 15 units but, ultimately was not approved.
