West Maricopa Village is proposed for the southeast corner of Loma Road and State Route 238. It would be bordered by the Acacia Crossing subdivision to the east, the future Estrella Gin Office Park to the south, and the proposed PHX Surf water and surf park to the west.
The project consists of two distinct pieces: 182 one and two-bedroom, single family homes for rent on the property’s east side, to be known as Innovation Village, and 342 apartment units known as Fuze 520 in one, two and three-story buildings between Innovation Village and Loma Road. Matrix Equities will develop Innovation Village but is in contract negotiations to sell the Fuze 520 portion of the project to Z Modular of Chandler, which will develop it.
The project also will include a mixed-use component that could include residential such as apartments, condominiums or townhouses on the upper floors and commercial usage on the ground floor. The area also is likely to have a gas station, convenience store and/or a car wash. A final phase would include planned retail, commercial office or medical space.
The community is envisioned as being pedestrian-friendly, with a private main street emphasizing walkability and community enjoyment, according to developers. This will allow residents and visitors to move about the community without having to use their cars.
