Project Description

 

Mekus Tanager was retained by Mt. Sinai Cemetery to investigate opportunities to expand burial options, incorporate future mausoleums and a funeral home, and enhance the beauty of the site.

 

The master plan embraces the Phoenix desert landscape and distant mountain views. Canopy trees provide shade and reduce the visibility of power lines that cross the site. Sustainable features include preserving the natural storm water wash that bisects the site and the native saguaro cactus, despite multiple utility easements. Accessibility is fostered by making all graves sidewalk accessible and connecting the cemetery to an adjacent bike path. The plan also enhances Jewish burial traditions, offering significant ground burial and orienting all graves to face east.

 

Of the 32 acre site, 4 acres are currently developed leaving significant room for growth when required. Working in close collaboration with Mt. Sinai, the master plan successfully integrates a variety of inventory options, optimizing land utilization and marketability for the future. The phasing plan is designed to be self-sufficient, balancing development costs with revenue. Currently, a new Phase 1 cremation garden is under construction.
