Long in the planning stages, a proposed apartment complex is on the agenda for the Maricopa Planning and Zoning Commission at its Tuesday meeting.
It would be the city’s first multi-family development.
Oasis at the Wells is designed to be 5.12 acres on the new Shea Road off Porter Road, between Walmart and Banner Health. According to the plan to be presented to the commission, it will be 120 units in five three-story buildings. The units will be one-bedroom, two-bedroom and three-bedroom apartments.
The area was rezoned for mixed use last year.
Though current zoning would require 263 parking spaces, the developer is asking to reduce that to 180 parking spaces. City staff indicated its support for that reduction in the staff report on the project.
Staff also noted it had “worked diligently with the applicant in producing architectural interest that will set the design level for future multi-family developments.”
Englewood Development Company is building the complex through Mountain Trace Development and has 14 other complexes in Arizona.
Planning and Zoning meets in council chambers at City Hall at 6 p.m.
