Native American Connections | Devine Legacy

Devine Legacy is a mixed-income, transit-oriented development along the north-south light-rail line of central Phoenix, Arizona. Developed by Native American Connections, a nonprofit corporation to serve the urban Indian population of Phoenix, it contains seven different unit types, including townhouses, lofts, and flats, with no differentiation between the 90 percent affordable and 10 percent market-rate units. The site is strategically located for residents to gain access to work and school, with a light-rail station located one-half block away and downtown less than 3 miles to the south. 

This case study forms part of the Case Studies 2013 project by the Sustainable Native Communities Collaborative (SNCC). These case studies are foundational to SNCC's multi-year effort to research and share the exciting work that tribes are undertaking across the country.
