Overland Group, Inc. is looking to develop a horizontally integrated mixed-use project with commercial and residential uses on a vacant 22.6-net acre property at the NWC of Avondale Boulevard and McDowell Road in Avondale.
The developer recently submitted a request to the city for a Freeway Corridor Specific Plan Amendment to increase the maximum allowed building height from three stories to four stories, as well as a request to rezone the property from Agricultural to a Planned Area Development. The property, while vacant, has been mainly used for agricultural/farming purposes.
The project, known as Avondale Commons, is proposed to include a 324-unit multifamily residential component on 12.5 net acres of the site, along with supportive commercial, hospitality, retail and office uses on the other 10.1 net acres.
The Residential Portion
The project documents note the residential portion of Avondale Commons consists a mix of 128 one-bedroom, 164 two-bedroom and 32 three-bedroom units distributed between, “four L-shaped four-story, elevator-served multi-family buildings and eight three-story carriage buildings featuring two floors of living space above ground floor tuck-under garages.”
Indoor and outdoor amenities are provided for the residential development including a centrally located, one-story clubhouse, resort-style pool with a lounge area and cabanas, playground spaces, pickleball and bocce ball courts, grilling areas, and free play turf areas.
