BedBrock Developers have announced the purchase of former Kachina Country Day School at 6602 E. Malcomb Drive in Paradise Valley.

The 4.1 acre parcel, newly named Kachina Estates, will soon be an enclave of four BedBrock Developers luxury custom modern homes designed by local architectural firm, Drewett Works, according to a press release.
BedBrock Developers has offered the Phoenix Fire Department the opportunity to use the buildings prior to demolition for two days of operations training.

On Oct. 27-28 recruits and recent academy graduates will participate in realistic drills by cutting through the roof and walls as well as penetrating fire nozzles through walls and ceilings, the release states.

“We are pleased to be able to offer this opportunity to the Phoenix Fire Department prior to demolition,” said Rich Brock, founder and owner of BedBrock Developers, in a prepared statement

“The Kachina Country Day School property of 4.1 acres has been in disrepair since the school closed in 2012 so there is a lot of community enthusiasm to see the property revitalized.  We are thrilled to work with renowned architectural firm, Drewett Works, in designing an enclave of four modern luxury homes that will preserve the essence of Paradise Valley. In 20 years of building luxury custom homes in Paradise Valley, this will be one of our most exciting projects to date.”

Kachina Estates is expected to be completed in fall 2016.
