Who We Are

Culdesac is a real estate and technology startup that builds cities for people, not cars. Our goal is to create the first car-free city in the US. We started by creating the first car-free neighborhood built from scratch in the US - Culdesac Tempe, a $200 million mixed-use neighborhood development for 1,000 residents that opened in 2023. The neighborhood covers 17 acres and features 55% open space, shared courtyards, and abundant bookable spaces. Culdesac is the co-developer and tech-enabled property manager.

Our Values

As sprawl became commonplace in our cities, we felt less connected to each other. We normalized hour-long commutes, even as private vehicle ownership became the largest source of carbon emission pollution. Our neighborhoods blend technology, real estate, and culture to reimagine our daily lives. Come help us make our residents happier, healthier, and more productive in the years they spend with us and the moments they spend together.

At Culdesac, we:

Work as a team
Be inclusive, drawing on the strengths of people who bring a different perspective.
Find ways to work together that overcome disciplinary and geographic separations.

Ship, including the last 10%
Be output oriented. Ship.
Our mission weaves us deep into people's lives. Respect that trusted relationship by seeing your work through to the end, including the last 10%.

Embrace the full-stack
We have a competitive advantage in operationally complex, capital-intensive work.
Tackling all the layers in the stack gives us an opportunity to deliver an exceptional user experience.
Always remember Rule #0: learn from those who have done it before.

Ask people for feedback
Only users know if we’re creating value for them.
We get better by observing behavior and asking others how we can improve.
Respect the limits of what we can know and plan. In the complex organism of a city, emergent behavior rules.

Design for humans
The messiness of human preferences and decision making is the rich soil where our product grows.
Human paradoxes and contradictions are our opportunity to create joy.
