About The Twin Palms Neighborhood
Twin Palms is a family oriented community in South Palm Springs originally developed by the Alexander Construction Company in 1957. Palmer & Krisel are a couple of architects who worked with the company to design and construct more than 2,500 homes in Palm Springs. They established a distinct modernist style that was imitated throughout the rest of the country, and is much appreciated by architecture admirers today. Twin Palms mostly features these Mid-Century homes with their soaring butterfly and pitched roof lines. Other quality homes were added to the neighborhood later as infill by area builders and some of the original Alexander homes have undergone restoration back to their original state.
