Catalina Foothills is a census-designated place in the county of Pima, Arizona. Located in the southern foothills of the Santa Catalina Mountains, it is north of the City of Tucson. Its history dates back to the early 1920s, when John Murphey purchased properties in the area. He had a vision of creating a low-density residential development that offered maximum privacy, preservation of existing desert vegetation, natural terrain, and mountain views. He only planned on developing 10 housing subdivisions with large lots.
In 1928, Murphy acquired 7,000 acres of land between North Oracle Road and Sabino Canyon during a federal land auction. He then hired Swiss architect Josias Joesler to implement his vision. In the 1930s, the residential development for Catalina Foothills began.
The CDP has grown to have a total area of 44.6 square miles, according to the United States Census Bureau. It is one of the most affluent communities in the state of Arizona and in the nation. The Catalina Foothills area has the 6th highest per capita income in the state of Arizona and the 14th in the U.S. The community features some of the most expensive homes and land in the state. It also includes the Skyline Country Club, Westin La Paloma Resort, Hacienda del Sol Resort, Loews Ventana Canyon Resort, and La Encantada. As of the 2000 census, it has a population of 53,794 people.
