Ghost Ranch Lodge Transformation


Tucson, AZ (PRWEB) April 30, 2011 — Atlantic Development & Investments, Inc. celebrated the completion of the rehabilation of the historic Ghost Ranch Lodge motorcourt hotel into affordable senior housing in Tucson, Arizona today.

The history of Ghost Ranch Lodge Apartments and its rehabilitation has been complex and extensive. Originally designed by renowned Swiss architect Josias Joesler in 1941, Ghost Ranch Lodge holds a unique place in the history of Tucson, and indeed, Arizona. Participating in the wider community event, the 2011 Miracle Mile Open House & Tour, the day marked the official opening for Ghost Ranch Lodge. Throughout the day over 200 people explored the newly restored grounds and buildings, including the famous Desert Cactus Garden. County officials, investors and residents alike shared in an hour-long celebration at 11 am that was devoted to the history of Ghost Ranch Lodge motorcourts and its miraclous transformation into affordable senior housing.

Having proudly served the community for over half a century, Ghost Ranch Lodge was sadly a seriously dilapidated vacant complex before its renovation (2009-2011) by an affiliate of Atlantic Development & Investments Inc.The present affordable housing community began proudly accommodating low-income seniors and the physically disabled in July 2010. The community was at full occupancy for its April 30th grand opening upon the completion of the second phase in 2011.

The property is composed of twenty historic buildings, built between 1941 and 1953. The property also prouldy contains the famous Desert Cactus Garden, which is the residence of the officially recognized “Great Tree of Arizona,” the largest Boojum Tree in the state of Arizona.

Once again, Thank You to everyone involved in making Ghost Ranch Lodge such a success!
