At least 1,050 homes can be built on the 373.5-acre stretch of State Trust Land in Ahwatukee that will go on the auction block within the next few months, according to the appraisal performed by the Arizona Land Department.
The appraisal helped the state Land Department set a starting bid of $105 million for the land –located along Chandler Boulevard between 19th and 27th avenues – whenever it holds an auction.
No auction date has been set yet, though a Land Department official told the Ahwatukee Foothills Village Planning Committee in December that it likely will occur this spring or early summer. The date will be set when the department begins a 10-week advertising period.
