APR announces entry into arizona

Architectural Plan Review has been chosen to create the design guidelines for Saddleback, a 5,400-acre new master-planned community in Peoria, AZ. This marks a significant milestone for APR, as it’s their first project outside of Texas, underscoring trust and confidence in their expertise. Saddleback is being developed by Castle Hill Partners, which is based in Austin.

Carlee Ryan, Vice President of Asset Management for Castle Hill, says, “We chose APR to create our design guidelines because we recognize their decades of experience in managing architectural control. It’s great to have a resource like APR as one point of contact to manage the process from start to finish.”

Ryan continued, “Large master-planned communities like Saddleback take time to build, and there are pinch points along the way. Continuity in architectural control is so helpful to the community’s vision and value being realized.” Known for illustrative clarity, APR’s design guidelines serve as development guardrails, preserving the developer’s vision and long-term value of the community.

“We’re thrilled to enter the Phoenix market and so honored to have been chosen by Castle Hill Partners to create and manage their community Design Guidelines,” said A’Lisa Ozment, founder and owner of Architectural Plan Review.  “We know that effective Design Guidelines can make the entire architectural control process so much easier to manage over time.”

APR recently added a new position, Guidelines Development Director, to focus specifically on creating and editing Design Guidelines.  Residential architecture expert Alissa Dyal joined the APR team in April, and she will lead the Castle Hill project.
