A roughly 58-acre site at the SWC of Happy Valley Road and 147th Avenue could soon become a mixed multifamily residential development of approximately 810 units under a rezoning request recently approved by the Surprise Planning and Zoning Commission.
Owners The Kamarata Family Trust have requested the rezoning from Rural Residential (RR) to Residential High Density (R-3). If approved and built as proposed, 27.2 acres will be developed with up to 500 traditional multi-story apartments at a density of 18.38 units/acre and 26.6 acres will be developed with up to 310 single-story units at a density of 11.65 units/acre. The new zoning’s maximum density would be set at 22 units/acre, and a minimum of 25% open space would be maintained.
