Carefree Partners is adding to its growing list of planned projects in the West Valley with the recent rezoning of nearly 62 acres in Buckeye for a future light industrial site.
The Buckeye City Council approved a request to rezone the “property fronting onto Arizona State Route 85 (SR85) and just south of Maricopa County Road 85 (MC85) in western Buckeye,” from Rural Residential to Light Industrial in its May 16 meeting.
While Carefree Partners has no immediate plan to start construction and has not provided any timelines, a preliminary site plan shows four buildings of various sizes. Building A is planned for 276.6KSF with a 36-foot clear height. Building B will be 504.3KSF with a 40-foot clear height, and Buildings Cand D will both be 98.3KSF with 32-foot clear heights.
The property fronts SR85 to the east and the planned Beloat Road to the south. Both the Buckeye 62 Industrial site and all the surrounding properties are currently vacant and used for agriculture, but all are planned for future non-residential development, according to the project narrative.
