Vallera at Village Traditions

On a drive down Palm Canyon Drive, one can't help but notice the network of construction fences, cranes, and the frantic heartbeat of jackhammers biting into concrete. The source of the commotion is that Palm Springs is redeveloping its Downtown. The new area is slated to include a mixture of luxury hotels, high-end lofts, and numerous retail and restaurant spaces.

However, not everyone has been excited to see the development underway. Some members of the community have raised concerns over whether or not the architectural style of these new buildings will stay true to the Modern charm that gives Palm Springs its character. Just off the intersection of South Calle El Segundo and Ramon Road, a mere block from the south end of the Downtown strip,

Moving to Palm Springs when you’re not ready or prepared to retire can be challenging. I know. I moved here five years ago without a job or a career I could pursue in the desert and there was no way I could stop working.

I thought about trying to change my business model to focus on weddings and real estate photography, but I really didn’t like doing that kind of photography. It was obvious I had to change gears altogether and I had to act fast. I had reinvented myself three times before, so I had some experience in the process.

When my husband and I moved here five years ago, we hadn’t spent much time in Palm Springs. In fact, we had only really driven through here to visit a friend of ours who lives in Rancho Mirage. Our move here was a leap of faith and it was based on a few criteria.

We wanted to change that.

Second, we wanted a place that
