Eighteen acres of land adjacent to the spring-training home for the Los Angels Dodgers and Chicago White Sox will be transformed into high-density housing, the result of a rezoning and general plan amendment that could open the door for commercial development near the ballpark in Phoenix.

The rezoning, which was approved by the Phoenix City Council on June 24, will allow the Empire Group to develop rental homes near the intersection of Camelback Road and Ballpark Boulevard.

The Empire Group intends to sell the housing community to the White Sox and Dodgers, which share the Camelback Ranch-Glendale ballpark, according to Jordan Rose, the attorney representing the developer.

“The ball teams were actually a part of the approvals and supported the case because they see bringing more residential to the area as helping to fulfill their overall vision of community,” Rose said.

A related general plan amendment will allow the teams to purchase additional parcels of land surrounding the ballpark, opening the possibility of mixed-use development in the area.
