Developers are working to build more multi-family housing in Maricopa.

A Scottsdale developer submitted pre-application paperwork last month to construct Santi Village, a proposed gated rental community in Seven Ranches.

Located near Gunsmoke and Santi Roads, a project narrative detailed a request to rezone the 28-acre parcel from general rural to multiple unit residential.

The rezone would allow for “the development of a single-family attached or detached gated community with one-story rental homes,” according to the paperwork.

A conceptual site plan shows 339 units in a compact neighborhood with a communal pool, clubhouse and pickleball court. The neighborhood would be accessed by Seven Ranch and Santi Roads.

A video from city development services published yesterday stated the multi-family development was under pre-application review. Once the paperwork is thoroughly reviewed and approved by the city, the developer may move forward in the process.

If approved, Santi Village would be the third housing community proposed for Seven Ranches in the last year.
