Ben Graff Featured in AZ Big Media Article About Rezoning Golf Courses for Residential Use

Media Mention

Ben Graff, a Phoenix-based zoning and land use partner in the Real Estate Practice Group, was featured in an AZ Big Media article that discussed the challenges and implications that come with turning a golf course into a residential area. These challenges range from contracts to public voting.

Below is an excerpt:

“One of the challenges is changing the city’s vision and helping them understand why a pocket of higher density housing might be a good transitional use for [these golf courses] and help with the housing crisis that’s being caused by a lack of diversity of both rental and for-purchase homes,” Graff says. “Higher density doesn’t have to be four story apartments.”

Graff — who represents multifamily developers — adds that building multifamily on golf courses is especially difficult since it’s a more radical change for nearby residents compared to building additional single-family homes for the neighborhood.
