A 33.4-acre property in Scottsdale was once part of a POW camp during World War II holding German U-Boat prisoners. It was later part of Scottsdale’s Motor Mile of car dealerships along McDowell Road.
Now, developers want to bring multifamily units, office space and restaurants to the property at McDowell and 64th Street.
Redevelopment plans have been filed for the Scottsdale Entrada property.
Santa Monica, California-based Banyan Residential wants to bring 745 multifamily residential units, 252,255 square feet of office space and 17,500 square feet of restaurants and retail to the 33.4-acre property.
Development plans also call for two parking garages and a total of 2,267 spots at the redevelopment.
Plans submitted with the city of Scottsdale do not include a hotel. That was an option but developers cited other new hotel plans in Scottsdale and Tempe as the reason for not proposing one for the Entrada redevelopment.
The McDowell Road corridor between 64th Street and Scottsdale Road has and continues to see redevelopment after the exit of Motor Mile car dealerships including ASU SkySong development and coming demolition and new apartments and a hotel at Papago Plaza
