Vice President, Cottonwood Properties
President, Dove Mountain Homes
Carson Mehl began his development career with projects in Texas, California and Colorado before returning to his hometown of Tucson in October 2009. A 2004 graduate of Pepperdine University, Mehl is a licensed general contractor in Arizona.
He oversees sales and marketing for Cottonwood Properties, which develops residential communities, resorts, retail centers, office complexes and apartment communities in excess of $800 million across the region. As president of Dove Mountain Homes, he serves as general contractor of The Ritz-Carlton Residences and additional custom homes within Dove Mountain.
“In Dove Mountain, we are creating a community that celebrates and respects the natural beauty of the Sonoran Desert and enriches the lives of those who come to visit, play or choose to make it their home,” said Mehl.
Mehl said believes that natural beauty is the number one reason for young people to consider Tucson, as well as its affordability.
“There are a lot of terrific businesses based in Tucson, but a local career is not a prerequisite for living here with so many remote working opportunities across the country and world.”
