  In the next two years, Paul Galloway plans to transform the debris-covered dirt lot next to Walgreens on Hwy. 89A into a “gorgeous” mixed-use development.

Kallof Place, the future development’s name, received unanimous preliminary plat approval from Sedona City Council on Sept. 11. A final plat will be put on council’s consent agenda after Galloway takes care of final stipulations for the 14-unit commercial and 13-unit residential project.

In the next two years, Paul Galloway plans to transform the debris-covered dirt lot next to Walgreens on Hwy. 89A into a “gorgeous” mixed-use development.

Kallof Place, the future development’s name, received unanimous preliminary plat approval from Sedona City Council on Sept. 11. A final plat will be put on council’s consent agenda after Galloway takes care of final stipulations for the 14-unit commercial and 13-unit residential project.

“Basically, you did your homework, Paul [Galloway], and it fits in perfectly,” Councilman Ramon Gomez said.

The development materializes Galloway’s vision of future West Sedona with new projects filling in vacant lots and replacing old buildings.

“I see Sedona transforming,” Galloway said.

Annika Jackson, vice president of Enchantment Resort, said the development will support Sedona’s economy by encouraging visitors to spend money.

A few weeks ago, guests staying at Enchantment Resort told Jackson they enjoyed their stay but didn’t like Sedona, Jackson told council. The guests said Sedona consists of “cheap strip malls.”

“I think its going to add to the attractiveness of Sedona,” Jackson said.

Kallof place is one of the first mixed-use developments Sedona residents will see as the national development phenomenon makes its way into the small town.

Galloway’s plans include approximately 18,259 square feet of commercial space on the ground level and approximately 16,220 square feet of residential space on the second floor. A two-story parking garage — one level is underground — will provide parking for patrons and residents.

“You have a development that’s going to have people out of their cars and onto their feet,” Robert Gordon, a Sedona resident, said.

Mayor Pud Colquitt said she’s happy the city is adding mixed-use development to encourage walking. Concentrated commercial space may appeal to older people who don’t want to drive.

Galloway wants Kallof Place to provide a venue for community interaction, shop and restaurant diversity and nightlife.

“I hope to provide places where our community can interact face to face,” Galloway said.

Kallof Place is one of three mixed-use developments Galloway hopes to build in Sedona within a similar time frame. Galloway also owns property on Hwy. 89A at Airport Road and on Hwy. 89A at Piñon Drive. He plans to build a smaller development at Airport Road and his largest at Piñon Drive.

Galloway plans to start construction of Kallof Place at the beginning of 2008 and hopes to do the same on the other two developments.

After breaking ground, Galloway estimates the project to be complete within 18 months.
