Scottsdale’s Private Motorsports Group will develop a $25M motorsports country club on 280 acres in Maricopa, according to an announcement earlier this week.
Apex Motor Club will feature a four-mile, multi-configuration asphalt road course, a 12KSF clubhouse, 12KSF multi-purpose building, kart facility and track, tuning shop, fuel and concierge service, and 200 auto storage spaces or “car condos” ranging from 600-to-1,800SF. The clubhouse will feature indoor and outdoor dining areas, lounge spaces, meeting rooms, classrooms and a fitness center. The multi-purpose area will be used for member and club-sponsored events.
Similar facilities exist in Los Angeles, Las Vegas, New York and Chicago. Apex plans to be first such club in Arizona. Private Motorsports reports it has already had inquiries from nearly 250 members and predicts an eventual membership of 450. Memberships will range in cost from $18,000 to $75,000.
“Our private motorsports club will be a lifestyle destination for high-end automobile enthusiasts,” said Private Motorsports Group CEO Jason Plotke. “Whether you are looking for a place to race, store your sports car or hang out in the ultimate man cave, Apex will offer a first-class experience that has really been missing here in the Valley until now.”
Construction of the $25 million development is scheduled to start by Q2 2017 and take approximately 18 months. Private Motorsports Group is the developer. Design services are from Motorsports Services International, and LGE Design Build is general contractor.
