InMaricopa photographer Bryan Mordt takes us on a tour of the new Copa Flats community currently under construction.
The Planning and Zoning Commission approved the project back in November 2021.
The Maricopa City Council approved a minor General Plan Land Use Amendment earlier in that month, changing the land use for 27.09 acres at the southeast corner of N. Porter and W. Applegate roads, just north of Maricopa-Casa Grande Highway, from Public/Institutional use (P) to Mixed Use (MU).
The development is near retail, restaurants, and recreational opportunities. It sits on 13 acres east of N. Porter Road at the intersection of N. Porter and W. Applegate roads, just north of the Maricopa-Casa Grande Highway at 17485 N. Porter Road near The Wells shopping center.
Minnesota-based Real Estate Equities is building a 312-unit, multi-family housing development on 13 acres of the site. The project known as Copa Flats, has a proposed mix of one, two and three-bedroom units with the following mix: 48 one-bedroom, one-bathroom units; 108 two-bedroom, two-bathroom units; and 156 three-bedroom, two-bathroom units.
