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, you'll find one subdivision that is staying truthful to the unique architectural style of Palm Springs real estate.
Vallera At Village Traditions
Village Traditions is one of the newest gated communities in Palm Springs. One half of the development is dedicated to condos and has been largely completed. The other half, however, is still under development. This is where you'll find Vallera at Village Traditions, a recent development of 52 detached single-family homes. Built in the traditional style of one of Palm Springs' most popular neighborhoods: Old Las Palmas, homes in this gated community feature elegant Spanish architecture on the exteriors and Modern style interiors.
Sand-finished stucco exteriors give these homes the appearance of stepping straight out of the desert, and floorplans in these houses are expansive, reaching beyond 2,000 square feet. Encompassed by stone privacy walls, yards include pools, picturesque fountains, and cobblestone courtyards. Inside, you'll find features like:
Granite slab counters
Energy efficient heating and cooling systems
