The future site of a Bahama Buck’s in The Wells shopping area received the OK to re-plat during the City Council’s approval of its consent agenda Dec. 17.
Owned by CAPDEVL060, a Scottsdale-based corporation that owns several commercial lots in Maricopa, the subdivided lot is off Porter Road on the east end of the Walmart parking lot. Planning a drive-thru at the location, Bahama Buck’s did not need the full 0.9-acre parcel.
The replatting made the parcel 0.64 acre and gave the rest of the parcel to the neighboring lot, enlarging it from 0.96 acre to 1.22 acres.
Neither CAPDEVL060 nor Bahama Buck’s has stated a schedule for construction on the lot. The business specializes in shaved ice. The Maricopa store is expected to be approximately 2,000 square feet. The company is planning a store in Casa Grande, too.
The final plat is good for 12 months, according to the staff report on the proposal. If required improvements are not made in that time period, the replat will be voided.
The development of the lot is part of renewed business interest in that section of Maricopa.
Also near Walmart, west on Maricopa-Casa Grande Highway, are lots for another Fast & Friendly Car Wash and an office building that will house dental offices. North of Walmart are a lot for Oasis at the Wells apartment complex off of Porter and a lot for A+ Charter Schools between Alan Stephens Parkway and Shea Way.
