Developer, MILHAUS, is planning its second urban mixed-use community in Tempe, this one to be located on the south side of Apache Boulevard extending to Wildermuth and River Drive.
The first one, called MILHAUS North Tempe, is a joint venture with Banyan Residential and phase one is currently under construction. The $177M project is anticipated to be completed in early 2023.
This project, known as MILHAUS @ Apache & River, will sit on seven total parcels. According to the project documents the site is currently underutilized and contains a vacant industrial building and automotive business, an existing RV Park, and a few vacant residences. The purpose is to, “transform small, underutilized properties along the Apache Boulevard light rail corridor into a fun, urban living environment comprised of a mix of residential, employment, retail and amenity uses.”
MILHAUS @ Apache & River will include a four-story mixed-use building at the Apache Boulevard frontage and a four-story multifamily residential building along River Drive and Wildermuth Avenue. The project will house 219 units comprised of a mix of 31 studio, 117-one, and 71-two-bedroom units. Five street-level units along Apache Boulevard will be live-work space providing approximately 1.5KSF of space.
