Glendale could annex the largest piece of land since it took in Luke Air Force Base in 1995.

Woolf Logistics, a 1,340-acre parcel owned by rose-farm mogul Leyton Woolf, could find itself within the city’s boundaries before the end of the year. The property now sits in an unincorporated area of Maricopa County.

Glendale Planning Director Jon Froke said the two parties broached the subject as early as 2005. Conversations continued into 2008, when the City Council directed Woolf to find a private company to handle the land’s water and sewer needs.

But development talks stalled during the recession, when Glendale had to focus on falling revenues, downgraded bond ratings and, eventually, a risk of bankruptcy.
