Description of Southeast Tucson

Southeast Tucson is a rural area where a few suburban neighborhoods have been developed in recent years. A neighborhood of masonry homes was developed in the 1960s through the early 1980s. A few townhome developments were built in the 1980s.

In the more rural portion of the area, manufactured homes on an acre or more are quite common.

During the housing boom of the early 2000s, home builders looking to build affordable homes sought land to develop a few suburban neighborhoods in the Corona De Tucson area.

Voyager is a popular 55+ neighborhood consisting of single family homes, townhouses, and manufactured homes.
