The Chandler Planning and Zoning Commission last week unanimously approved a rezoning that allows industrial development on one of the city’s last remaining farms – and one of the last large parcels of developable land.
The commission okayed the rezoning of the 71-acre Schrader Farms property at Queen Creek and McQueen roads after the developer, Core5, assured the panel tenants renting the six proposed new buildings on the site would not be high-traffic, large-scale manufacturers.
The Schrader Farms Business Park, named after a family that for decades maintained a hay farm, will consist of six buildings that will house a variety of undefined businesses.
“Schrader Farms Business Park will attract new companies, high-paying jobs and enhance Chandler’s growing reputation as one of the best places to live in America,” the project’s developers told the commission.
