Union Park at Norterra: New Details on Upscale Master-Planned Community

A large-scale new master-planned development in North Phoenix finally got a name: Union Park at Norterra. The upscale community, on USAA property along I-17 between Happy Valley and Jomax roads, will combine architecture harkening to the 19th Century with territorial-style homes — and even models inspired by Frank Lloyd Wright — all for a look and feel unlike anything else in NoPho. Amenities will range from a community swimming pool to pickleball courts. We've got new details on who the builders are and what the amenities will be.
