Desert Palisades - Palm Springs 

Palm Springs' Last Hillside Enclave

Poised to become the new model for extraordinary, modern architectural vision, Desert Palisades is artfully crafting the next chapter in the story of Palm Springs. Along the storied, sun-drenched hillsides of Chino Canyon, a new enclave is emerging, one that melds the rich, unmistakable heritage of Palm Springs with a mindful, forward-thinking design vision. 

An Extraordinary Canvas for Architectural Expression

Desert Palisades features a collection of 110 homesites, the Coachella Valley's last hillside lots, each appointed to choreograph fluently with their surroundings. Homesites are designed to engage with the stunning topography and preserve the natural contours of the land. They offer varying elevations and orientations, taking full advantage of every possible viewpoint from the San Jacinto Mountains to the Salton Sea. Each property is utterly unique, with no flat-grade pads to be constructed and no mass grading to occur. Residents are emboldened with the space and freedom to explore their creativity, shape their community and create homes of rare architectural significance. 

One Fluid Design Vision

The mission of Desert Palisades is to lead a movement in modern architectural design by creating a cutting-edge, sustainable, and visually enriching enclave that harmonizes eloquently with the landscape. Unlike the typical master-planned, cookie-cutter neighborhoods, Desert Palisades is the first enclave that from the ground up will adhere to the ideals that represent the very best in midcentury and contemporary architecture in Palm Springs. Community guidelines are meant to inspire a collection of homes that are clean, linear, and ageless with open, airy interiors transitioning seamlessly to the outdoors. Residents are encouraged to enlist the world's most prominent architects to explore new ideas in desert modernism while upholding the time-honored, midcentury principles that have defined Palm Springs from the beginning. 

The Allure of Palm Springs

Desert Palisades embodies the creative, independent spirit of Palm Springs, which has maintained its character and eclectic personality, even as development in the Coachella Valley has expanded over the years. Situated three minutes from downtown, Desert Palisades offers residents the chance to live within close reach of Palm Springs' flourishing art districts, shopping, dining, and entertainment offerings. The culinary scene is ever-evolving, with a plentiful mix of gourmet classics and chic newcomers. The city's signature midcentury modern style is on display throughout its countless boutiques. Natural wonders abound, making Palm Springs a coveted destination for outdoor recreation, offering more than 100 pristine hiking, biking, and horseback riding trails, as well as numerous national parks, waterfalls, and healing hot springs to explore.
