Developer Geddes Capital Resources, LLC is proposing Roosevelt Commons – a new master planned project on a 15.6-acre site at the SEC of Verrado Way and Roosevelt Street in Buckeye.
Geddes is requesting a rezoning from the current one-acre Single-Family Residential to Business Park with Planned Area Development Overlay for the vacant desert site. Surrounding uses include the 11.5-acre Buckeye Commons Westcommercial master planned development and the 27-acre Abrazo Medical Campus. An 18-acre development with two flex industrial buildings totaling 250KSF is under construction directly to the west of the site. To the south is the Palo Verde Education Center – a public information resource and training facility for the Palo Verde Generating Station nuclear power plant.
According to the project narrative prepared and submitted by CVL Consultants(Coe & Van Loo), there would be several possible uses at Roosevelt Commons, “including but not limited to business park/flex office, professional office, retail, and restaurant space. Subsequent to this submittal, the developer intends to submit a Minor Site Plan for the property, incorporating feedback received from the City and providing relevant engineering, architectural, and detailed site planning documents for review and approval.”
