Via City of Scottsdale
By Tom Scanlon | Scottsdale Progress
Many around Scottsdale would growl – if not worse – on hearing plans for a massive industrial project coming to their neighborhood.
Conversely, around DC Ranch, some are hoping a sprawling stretch of desert land will be converted entirely into an industrial development.
To be fair, most likely would prefer the natural “desert farm” between Bell and Pima roads just east of the Loop 101 to remain as it is. But they realize change is coming after a development company paid $125 million for 124 acres of State Trust Land put up for auction.
One year later, a big Mack Innovation Park plan is about to “flip” that sprawling desert land into industrial buildings – and, perhaps, hotels, apartments and/or condominiums.
