Luna Azul on Disability Scoop

April 22nd, 2019

In what developers say is a first, an entire neighborhood of brand-new homes is set to hit the market that is specifically designed for adults with developmental disabilities.

The development called Luna Azul is located in Phoenix. A model home and the neighborhood clubhouse and pool are slated to open in May, while the remainder of the 30 houses are on track to be completed by the end of the year.

What makes the collection of homes unique in the U.S. — and possibly around the world — is that residents will own their homes, offering a more permanent situation, according to those behind the project.

“We worried about our daughter’s future, especially after we’re gone,” said Mark Roth, developer of Luna Azul, whose adult daughter has a developmental disability. “Property ownership endows Luna Azul residents with personal agency, a community of compatible neighbors and a sense of pride, while their families can rest assured that their loved ones are safe, engaged in life and cared for.”

With homes situated around a courtyard and regular community activities, Luna Azul was designed as a “pocket neighborhood” encouraging relationships between neighbors. The homeowners’ association will employ a full-time director and overnight staff to promote community engagement and safety, though residents will be expected to arrange their own support services.
