More on the significance of the Alexander Construction Company, who made this neighborhood the a beautiful aesthetic time warp from (website hidden)-
At first, Alexander homes were designed for sheer production efficiency, but in 1957, Krisel and Palmer came to Palm Springs in conjunction with the Alexander Construction Company with a new concept: to build stylish modern-style tract homes with clean lines and simple elegance that were affordable and even more efficiently producible.
In the late 1950s, the mass production of mid-century modern Alexander style of tract homes was an untested and somewhat revolutionary idea from relatively unknown architects. George Alexander agreed with architect Bill Krisel to a trial run of building ten homes, with more to follow if the experiment was a success. Today, the Alexander is widely coveted by young and old alike, and Bill Kriesel, living in the Los Angeles area and in his eighties, has become a folk hero of mid-century modern home enthusiasts.
