The Stadium Rowhouses are five residential units designed to provide a visual buffer between the University of Arizona‘s 6th St. Parking garage and the Rincon Heights neighborhood. Working with the University’s Planning Design and Construction Department and the Rincon Heights Neighborhood Association, Architecture students designed a master plan for the long and narrow strip of land, and then developed permit drawings for the first two units. Subsequent classes developed the designs further as they constructed the rowhouses.
The following schemes were masterplan ideas chosen by the neighborhood association and UA PDC in 2015 for further development.
