Summary

Logan Simpson conducted archaeological excavations between February and June 2013 for the City of Phoenix’s Frank Luke Addition (FLA) Project. The excavations were completed within a 9.1-acre parcel situated within the prehistoric site of La Ciudad (AZ T:12:1[ASM]), a Hohokam village located north of the Salt River. The FLA Project is located within a highly urbanized portion of the City of Phoenix (COP) in the Phoenix Basin, south-central Arizona.

Historical documents indicate that the FLA parcel was used for farming until about 1906, when it was subdivided for private housing. In 1950, the COP purchased the 12.2-acre parcel for redevelopment as public housing and named the development in honor of the World War I flying ace Frank Luke. The 1950s public housing complex consisted of 39 1-story apartment buildings separated by grass lawns, play areas, and a curving street. The apartments were built in 1952 and were demolished in 2012, following appropriate documentation, to make way for a larger complex of multiple-story apartments to be developed by the COP using a combination of Low Income Housing Tax Credits, General Obligation bonds, and a U. S. Department of Housing and Urban Development HOPE VI grant.
