Welcome to North 32nd St Renewed

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.

All about Phoenix Paradise Gardens Homes

The Phoenix Paradise Gardens Subdivision built in the 1960’s covers the area from 32nd Street to 36th Street and Mountain View to Gold Dust.

Not your average subdivision; Paradise Gardens was a partnership with famous Phoenix modern architect Al Beadle.

Al Beadle not one to mince words once said “Unfortunately, most people are not aware of good design. The architect’s catch-22 is that people with taste have no money, and the people with money have no taste, so that often leaves the architect out.”

Though the partnership between Al Beadle and developer Robert Altherr and A-1 Construction didn’t last very long the modern Beadle design is carried throughout the subdivision.  The architect created homes especially suited to the desert with deep overhangs and an indoor/outdoor connection that let’s the occupants fully connect with the desert ensconced in the safety of the steel and block “shelter” . 

There are four cactus themed floor plans that maintain a clean, modern, design that Al Beadle was known for.

Here are a look at some of the drawings and homes today.

Many Paradise Gardens homes continue the mid century trend but offer modern touches.  Paradise Gardens Homes are keeping the original design but adding modern conveniences such as closed garages or extra closet spaces are common.  The trick is to keep the open design concept while still allowing for some privacy and efficiency for our modern technology.

Known as the steel and glass man, the Modern Architecture of Al Beadle reflects a purity of design that endures even today.  Phoenix Gardens remains a popular choice for architect enthusiasts, mid century modern lovers, and Phoenix families.
