(City of Chandler)
By Ken Sain | Chandler Arizonan
The Chandler Planning & Zoning Commission is recommending the City Council approve a large project that essentially welcomes folks to downtown and a mixed-use development that combines nine businesses with a home on top of each.
The District Downtown would be located on nearly 45 acres at the southwest corner of Arizona Avenue and Pecos, just north of the Loop 202 freeway. It would contain a wide range of buildings, including apartments, a hotel and retail and office space.
McQueen Live Work is much smaller in scale, sitting on about an acre and a half at the city’s northeast border with Gilbert. However, it would be only the second vertical mixed-use property. The plan calls for nine businesses, each with a house built on top of their business.
