Shades of South Mountain

Welcome to the Shades of South Mountain, a new condominium neighborhood crafted by Frank Residential, a local company which has been building homes in the Phoenix area since the early 1960’s. Their continuing commitment to enhancing the lifestyle in their home town is the reason they still are building quality, reasonably-priced neighborhoods in our community today.

Shades of South Mountain’s Special History

Thousands of colorful flowers bloomed year-round on this site, a former Japanese Flower Garden. These blossoms represented a beauty and tranquility unmatched in the Phoenix area. This unique history provides the inspiration for Shades of South Mountain. A new blossom in the valley, this area has flourished as a housing and recreation district with its convenient proximity to downtown Phoenix, Sky Harbor Airport, ASU, neighboring golf courses, and hiking and biking trails.

The dramatic mountain range towering above the Shades of South Mountain is a part of the expansive recreational park known as South Mountain Park—the largest municipal park in the United States and one of the largest urban parks in North America. South Mountain Park features some of the most popular hiking, biking and horseback trails in the entire Phoenix area. Hikers can find ancient petroglyphs carved into the rocks along the trails, along with a variety of flora and fauna. It is the elegant hues, tones and shades of color found within this remarkable nature preserve that has inspired the name of our new community, the Shades of South Mountain, as well as the names of our model homes. Rich browns, warm ambers, delicate greens and earthy greys adorn the natural scenery of South Mountain; and these are the colors that define the ambiance experienced in the Shades of South Mountain.
