Preliminary plans for a new multifamily, mixed-use development called The Alexander were recently recommended for approval with conditions at the Town of Marana’s June 24th Planning Commission meeting.
Developer, Sears Financial Corporation was requesting to rezone approximately 10.74 acres at the SWC of Aerie Drive and Thornydale Road from Neighborhood Commercial to Specific Plan. They were also requesting approval of a land use category change in the Marana General Plan from Commercial to Master Plan Area.
The Alexander, while entirely conceptual at this time according to the staff report, is expected to include a market rate, high-density multifamily development on the western part of the site, while two acres on the eastern part of the site will be reserved for a potential future phase of additional multifamily and/or commercial development.
