One of the most notorious corners in Mesa should look different by March 2021.
What are now fenced-off largely vacant lots on the northwest corner of Main Street and Country Club Drive are envisioned as a five-story, nearly 200-unit apartment complex with bottom-floor retail space.
The city recently sold 1.3 acres, which surrounds the empty Bailey’s Brake Services building, to Chicanos Por La Causa, which is developing the land through a for-profit subsidiary.
Construction is expected to begin by August.
