Circular Housing: Sun City, Arizona, USA

Sun City was launched January 1, 1960, with five home models, a shopping center, recreation center and golf course. The opening weekend drew 100,000 people, ten times more than expected, and resulted in a Time magazine cover story. The future retirement community was built on the site of the former ghost town of Marinette.

All houses are concentrated around a shopping center.
