The proposed West Maricopa Village development advanced Tuesday night with city council’s approval of a zoning change for the rental community.
A 35-acre parcel at Loma Road and State Route 238 was rezoned from industrial to mixed use for a project that would include single-family homes for rent, apartments, a gas station, and retail and/or office space. The developer is Scottsdale’s Matrix Equities Inc.
The site, which is bordered by Acacia Crossings to the east and the future development the Estrella Gin office park to the south, would be developed phases. Phase 1 would include the construction of about 182 single-family homes on 16-plus acres. The homes, which would feature a density of 11 units per acre, will include both two-bedroom stand-alone units and one-bedroom duplexes. Amenities would include a swimming pool and a social pavilion.
