The master-planned community, along Tangerine Road and west of Interstate 10, is 1,325 acres in size and has more than 1,250 homes. It was designed to accommodate up to 3,500 homes, and the Marana Unified School District is building a new elementary school in the development. The school is expected to open in August.
