The north Peoria mega-development of Vistancia has turned empty desert into a resort-like village over the past 20 years, mostly with thousands of single-family homes. But it will soon get something more: a traditional main street.
It’s the final piece of the Vistancia master-planned community, with construction starting next year. When complete, the commercial core will have restaurants and shops, a hotel, office buildings and about 1,500 luxury apartment units.
The 7,100-acre Vistancia community is divided into five “lifestyle communities,” four of which are resort-style single-family home neighborhoods with high-end amenities like golf courses, community pools, walking trail, parks and recreation facilities.
The commercial core, called Five North, is the last at the community, located near Loop 303 and Lone Mountain Parkway.
