The Ghost Ranch Lodge, an Adaptive Reuse Success

The Ghost Ranch Lodge had its grand reopening several months ago, as I previously posted in The Redevelopment of the Ghost Ranch Lodge. Construction had just been completed a few weeks before the event, and the units were already 100% occupied with a waiting list for future residents. It has also served as a catalyst for redevelopment along Miracle Mile, and now the historic motor court Monterey Motel down the street is being redeveloped into an artist studio. The Ghost Ranch Lodge is truly an adaptive reuse project that shows a historic rehabilitation can be good for a community as well as financially feasible!

The developer of the Ghost Ranch Lodge, Atlantic Development + Investments, generously sent some pictures so I wanted to share a few of them here. If you are in Tucson and have a chance to drive by, it’s off the Miracle Mile exit east of I-10. The neon sign is awesome at night.
