East Sunny Dunes Road has been emerging as a stylish destination in recent years (bagel bakery & coffee shop, Pilates studio, florist, gifts, art galleries, antique showrooms, nightlife and more), and one may anticipate further upward trends in value and greater appeal to first class commercial tenants, due to a highly desirable customer demographic coming on scene now.


Several factors significantly contribute to the neighborhood’s rising value: two new exclusive communities have been built within several hundred yards of the site (Cody Place and Élan), an upscale new commercial corner is pre-leasing (Cody Place Commercial, featuring restaurants), two upscale historic neighborhoods on the borders of the block (the Warm Sands neighborhood to the north and the Tahquitz River Estates neighborhood to the south), and the vibrant Sunny Dunes commercial zone itself. It is also an architecturally significant, creative sector not far from the south end of the downtown core, and can be marketed as a destination, similar to the "Uptown Design District" and other Palm Springs commercial destinations.

Tahquitz River Estates Neighborhood

Known also as the “Golden Mile” in the 1950s, it is one of the city’s largest neighborhoods showcasing architecture from Spanish-Revival and Hollywood Regency to Mid-Century Modern, California Ranch, and the Paul Trousdale-style home popularized in the late ‘40s and ‘50s. E. Sunny Dunes Road comprises the border of the Warm Sands and Tahquitz River Estates neighborhoods. The affluent neighborhood encompasses Tahquitz Creek, a natural wash originating high in scenic Tahquitz Canyon, safely contained when it reaches the valley floor level in an engineered channel. Per data, the median home sales price in the neighborhood is $1,295,500


Sunny Dunes “CM” Commercial Manufacturing Zone

Zoned as “CM”, (Commercial and Light Manufacturing), the buzzy area has a healthy and varied commercial zone of thriving business activities appealing to desirable demographics from early to late hours.  Moreover, several buildings on the block were designed by several acclaimed architects of the mid-20th Century in this former enclave of architects, landscapers, and related building trades.
