A gated, multifamily development is planned for a 20-acre property in Tortosa.  

Honeycutt Run will consist of 209 single-story and detached units at the southeast corner of Honeycutt and Hartman roads, according to the developer, Sandbox Development Consultants of Phoenix. A commercial use would be included as well. 

The development will border homes on West La Paz Street to the south and North San Marin to the east.

The property, zoned CB-1 for commercial business, was intended to be developed more than 10 years ago as a small retail store, restaurant and gas station. 

It would need to be rezoned for mixed use. 

The plan is still under review by the city but is scheduled to be presented to the Planning and Zoning Commission at its April 12 meeting, according to Peter Margoliner, assistant planner in the city’s Economic & Community Development department. 

DR Horton bought 62 acres in Tortosa South for $16.7 million, AZ Big Media reported in February. The land includes 220 partially-improved lots sold by the McRae Group of Companies, which purchased the lots in 2016 for $2.9 million.
