The City of Chandler Planning and Zoning Commission at its May 4 meeting approved rezoning 5.4 acres of a golf course’s former driving range to be redeveloped into a luxury multifamily community. From developer Wood Partners, the Alta San Marcos project would be located along the south side of Chandler Boulevard, just a few blocks west of Arizona Avenue.
“Recent Council Policy targets the Downtown Chandler Growth Area for revitalization encouraging high-density residential, mixed-uses, and transit-oriented development. Chandler Boulevard is a High Capacity Transit Corridor which is intended to develop with mixed uses…,” according to city documents.
Three four-story residential buildings will rise up to 55 feet in height right up against a new six-foot wide sidewalk along the boulevard. Comprising a total of 249KSF, the 273 units vary from 686SF studios to 1,495SF two-bedroom loft units. First floor private courtyards will extend right to property lines, engaging residents with the street scene and surrounding neighborhood and creating a pedestrian scale to the project.
The architecture is inspired by East Coast brownstone houses, a style also referred to as townhouse clad. Like residential blocks in New York City, the look and feel of the buildings will represent an urban streetscape. The walkable community will also include 392 parking spaces, with 185 carports, 85 garages, 85 tandem spaces, and 37 open stall spaces.
Wood Partners is the developer behind a number of other recent multifamily projects, including Alta Fillmore in downtown Phoenix, Alta Paradise Ridge and Alta Camelback in Phoenix, Alta Steelyard Lofts in downtown Chandler, and Alta Scottsdale and Alta Osborn in Scottsdale, along with complexes in North Phoenix, Tempe and Peoria.
