Quick reminder in case you missed it on the front page: Today's Arizona Daily Star contains an article all about Penasco titled "Tucson's Beach Is Booming"

It's an interesting look at some of the effects all the development and growth is having on the city, and contains some interesting numbers on condo growth, sales, etc.

'Tucson's beach' is booming
Puerto Peasco keeps growing by the day; here are some of the latest developments
By Joseph Barrios
ARIZONA DAILY STAR
Tucson, Arizona | Published: 02.11.2007

PUERTO PEASCO, SONORA In days past, RVs and tents were about the only forms of lodging dotting the long stretch of Sandy Beach, west of downtown Rocky Point.

They're now joined by a new, permanent and much taller presence: luxury condo towers.

Condo developments are turning Rocky Point a town that started as home to shrimpers and fishermen and grew into a hideaway for U.S. expatriates and a college-student party spot into a booming tourist center. No place symbolizes this growth more than Sandy Beach, the approximately 5-mile stretch of sand west of town that just a few years ago had no permanent homes.
