PHOENIX – So-called ‘zombie subdivisions’ still dot the Valley’s landscape, more than 10 years after the Great Recession gave birth to them.
What’s a ‘zombie subdivision’? Zombie subdivisions are neighborhoods that developers walked away from when money got tight.
Carrie Toye lives a stone’s throw from a big one. The subdivision is called Estrella Vista in Buckeye.
“A lot of people dumping their trash and things, like beds over there, but looks like they’re preparing it for something. I don’t know what,” said Toye.
Estrella Vista is not the only zombie subdivisions. Others lurk in areas like Laveen and Casa Grande. Prime properties that are dead as a door nail for more than a decade.
