Multifamily housing makes up less than 2% of housing options in Maricopa, according to U.S. census data. But that could change in the coming months.
Maricopa Planning and Zoning Commission received development review permit requests for a pair of multifamily developments during a meeting last night.
The next step could be approval by the city council.
EVR at San Travasa
Developer El Dorado Holdings is eyeing a 24-acre rental community on the northwest corner of Farrell and White and Parker Roads.
The proposal includes 186 cottages ranging from 800 to 1,500 square feet with small backyards. A clubhouse, fitness center, pool, dog park and playgrounds would round out the community amenities.
In a project narrative, developers said the community would differ from other multifamily projects in that it “will have a much more single-family residential look and feel due to the single-story design.”
Gunsmoke Multifamily Development
The 25-acre lot on the southwest corner of Gunsmoke and Honeycutt Roads saw a recent change of ownership.
Lincoln Avenue Capital is mulling building 217 single- and two-story rental units ranging from 900 to 1,200 square feet. Like EVR at San Travasa, the units would have small backyards and the community would host a clubhouse, fitness center, yoga room and pool.
The proposal also includes plans to add sustainability efforts, including on-site recycling drop-off and solar-lit parking.
