Welcome to 32|Renewed! The pulse of North Phoenix’s 32nd Street Corridor.
Our neighborhood is experiencing a renewed cultural and economic expansion. Municipal investments, business development, and passionate residents are growing our established community into a vibrant destination for entertainment, dining, shopping, and soaking in the beauty that North Phoenix has to offer.
I’m Louisa Ward, a Phoenix native. I have lived in and loved this neighborhood for 27 years. As a Realtor I sell homes across the valley, but I love calling our neighborhood home. I am your local neighborhood specialist. I specialize in Heritage Heights, Paradise Gardens, Sierra Bonita, and Mountain View Park subdivisions. My daughters both went to Shea Middle School and Shadow Mountain High School. I was an active participant in their schooling and was the team mom for their golf team. When I’m not working or spending time with my family I can usually be found hiking Piestewa Peak or visiting our local Farmers Market at Roadrunner Park. I love this area and know the many facets of this dynamic community. I am excited to see the changes that take place over the next few years as the City of Phoenix helps revitalize the neighborhood.

Watt Communities of Arizona is building a new single family home development at 32nd street and Cactus in Phoenix called The Enclave.
The Enclave at 32nd St will be about 3.5 acres and situated on the southwestern corner of 32nd street and Cactus. The move grows the company’s local presence and expands its product offerings to include single-family detached homes and urban townhomes in suburban neighborhoods.
Scheduled to break ground in late 2014 with models set to be completed by mid-2015, The Enclave includes 31 two-story, single detached homes ranging from approximately 1700-200 square feet. All homes will feature a welcoming front porch concept, creative side patios, builder installed front yards and common area landscaping, walkable interior courtyards, and private rear entry, two car garages. The houses’ price range has yet to be determined.
“This development is based on a private drive design developed by our partners in California, and is a unique concept here in Arizona,” said Paul Timm, COO of Watt Communities of Arizona. “Having just one point of entry for the community adds a level of privacy and allows residents to own a small oasis within a bustling urban corridor. It is innovative housing in and active location, but also peaceful.”
The Enclave at 32nd street land acquisition closed escrow on May 13th for 1.275 million.
Steve Pritulsky, Watt Communities of Arizona president said that new homes in the area were few and far between since the downturn in the housing market. Creating infill projects like these, he added, helped make the lots useable again.
“Typically, there’s a greater degree of profitability in the infill market,” Pritulsky said. “To some extent, they’re kind of insulated a great deal from direct competition.”
He said infill developments also directly help the community by using resources that already exist.
“So often you hear criticism that the development industry promotes sprawl and the outward march into the suburbs,” he said. “So I think one of the most basic things that it does for the community is that it leverages off of existing infrastructure, and it doesn’t create the need to basically expand the city. You’re filling in the gaps.”
This is exciting news for the community of 32nd st. The vacant lot will finally have a purpose and is part of the 32 North revitalization plan.

Check out the Roadrunner Park Farmers market every Saturday from 8:00-1:00p. Summer hours are in effect from June 7th- July 26th 7-11am
Roadrunner Park Farmers market is the longest consecutively running farmers market in the state of Arizona, serving the community since 1990!
What does it offer?
Local farm produce including fresh vegetables & fruit, baked goods, honey, jams and jellies, nursery stock, natural pork, beef and fish, hand crafted items.
The booths rotate but some staples to check out are:
- P.B Americano for delicious varieties of nut butter,
- B Naked chocolates offering delicious macaroons and more,
- Vilardi Gardens offering heirloom tomatoes, basil, eggplant, and more great veggies.
- Blue Sky organic farms offering certified organically grown produce and local eggs.
- Raimondos gluten free Italian cuisine offering veggie lasagna, eggplant rollatini, meatballs and more
- JH Grass Fed offers grass fed beef, lamb, and chicken from Holbrook ranch 45 miles north of Cave Creek
The best part is easy credit card shopping. Cash is always welcome, but one credit card charge can pay for all your purchases from any of the vendors at the information booth. Many vendors offer square card readers as a payment option too.
If you go bring your reusable and recycled bags, go early for the best selection. Sometimes popular items sell out fast.
Get to know the vendors, often times you can pre-order goods from them and pick them up the next time you go to the Farmer’s market.
Partner with your family and neighbors for bulk savings. Ordering food in bulk gets great prices and then you can divide it among your group.
