Document Description
The 5.1-acre site was formerly the grounds and recreation area of the Vista del Arroyo Hotel and Resort complex built in 1903. The hotel property was acquired by the US War Department in 1943 and the Desiderio USARC was built on the western lot in 1956. The Desiderio Hall building and OMS are eligible for the National Register of Historic Places (NRHP) under Criterion C as an excellent and rare example of an unmodified Reisner & Urbahn design for USARCs. The proposed project includes two primary components, a 3.87-acre city park, and nine single-family detached bungalow homes in a courtyard formation. The southeast portion of the site would be developed into nine bungalow homes by Habitat for Humanity encompassing a total of 1.29 acres. The bungalows would be sold at affordable prices to families that earn up to 80 percent of the area median income.
