City Council on Tuesday will review and hear public comment on three measures relating to the proposed Villas at the Gin Apartment project.
The project, on the southeastern corner of Edison Road and Estrella Parkway, is on a 10.2-acre parcel just south of Estrella Gin Business Park, between Sonoran Creek Marketplace and the Maricopa Fire/Medical Administration Building.
Council will vote on minor general-plan and general-plan land-use amendments and a zoning change, all of which would reclassify the property for high-density residential use and clear the 162-unit, multi-family project to move forward.
The Planning & Zoning Commission approved the measures at its Sept. 12 meeting. The project would be adjacent to the Estrella Gin commercial development at Edison and Loma roads.
Preliminary elevations call for five three-story buildings of about 40 feet in height with a mix of one-, two- and three-bedroom units.
