The City of Goodyear recently approved a rezoning request for approximately 8.19 acres located east of the SEC of Bullard Avenue and McDowell Road in Goodyear, for the development of a new senior living community.
The request, approved at Goodyear’s June 24th City Council meeting, was to rezone the site from General Commercial to Multifamily with Planned Area Development Overlay.
The developer, Sparrow Partners, is proposing to develop a “high-quality, 180-unit multifamily community designed to accommodate active adult living with appropriate amenities.” The 55+ community will consist of 124 one-bedroom units and 56 two-bedroom units and approximately 243 parking spaces will be provided for residents.
Amenities for the Sparrow Senior Apartments will include a community clubhouse, fitness center, pickleball court, dog park, community garden beds, pool and two lawn areas. According to the applicant’s submittal, “The majority of the outdoor amenities are located within a large centralized courtyard, which will be convenient for residents and screened from off-site areas.”
