The City Council on Tuesday unanimously approved the subdivision final plat for the initial two phases of the Hogenes Farms housing development. 

The six parcels, on 232 acres at the northwestern corner of McDavid and Green roads, increases the development to 489 acres that will have about 2,700 homes when the project is completed.  

The project will be developed by Marbella Homes under its TRS 15 division. Based on the U.S. Census Bureau’s estimate of 3.3 residents per dwelling, the massive residential community would be about 8,900 residents. 

The lots in Phases 1 and 2 range from 40 by 115 feet (5,175 square feet) to 65 by 120 feet, (7,800 square feet) with a density of 3.5 homes per acre. These two initial phases  would have 844 homes, which would house about 2,785 new residents.  

Phase 1 includes an amenity area near the center of the project that will be accessible to the entire community at buildout. Amenities include walking trails, tennis courts, ramadas, play structures and landscaped open space.  

Phase 2 will provide trail connectivity with the entire community, an additional tot lot and several acres of usable landscaped open space.  

Initially marketed as Maricopa Meadows II, Hogenes Farms is bounded by the Union Pacific Railroad tracks on the north, McDavid Road on the south, Green Road on the east and Rachel Road alignment on the west. 

The PAD plan calls for a mixed-use, master-planned community with medium-density residential zoning of between two and six homes per acre. 

As part of its agreement with the city, TRS 15 has agreed to build the city’s second overpass across the Union Pacific tracks to alleviate traffic congestion that would be created by the area’s burgeoning population.
