SIGNIFICANCE

Constructed in 1960, the Patio Palms is significant for its association with Tempe's postwar population boom, which triggered the development of a series of multi-family properties west of Mill Avenue in Section 16.  Patio Palms is considered to be one of the most architecturally significant of those properties.
