More apartments in Maricopa? That’s the plan for one Valley developer.

Scottsdale developer Geston Duffy Company proposed building a mixed-use residential community near Edison Road and Wilson Avenue, according to paperwork submitted to the city this month.

Dubbed Sonoran Village, the community will bring 136 residential and 20 commercial units across a trio of three-story buildings in the empty lot behind Sprouts Farmers Market. The developer’s pre-application narrative detailed apartment sizes to range from small studios to cozy three-bedroom units.

Located on the ground floors, the square footage of the 20 proposed offices ranges from 600 to 900 square feet. The developer didn’t say which types of businesses it hoped to attract.

This paperwork is only part of the pre-application process, which means developers have only indicated an interest to build or do business in the city. Maricopa’s Planning and Zoning Commission may discuss the application at a future meeting if the developer opts to move forward with the process.
