The Town of Gilbert’s Design Review Board will consider a proposal by Embry Partners to create a 320-unit multifamily development at the northwest corner of Santan Village Parkway and Boston Street as part of a greater mixed-use project planned for the area.
Apartments at The Flats will be in four four-story and four two-story carriage buildings on the 11.6 acre site. Plans call for 48 studio, 161 one-bedroom and 222 two-bedroom units, with floor plans ranging from 600-1,275SF. Visual interest will be provided through the use of balconies, varied roof heights and facades.
Amenities will include a central clubhouse, pool and dog park. Building finishes will be comprised mainly of painted stucco in a variety of earth tones with metal accents. The clubhouse will be distinguished with a stone veneer.
Landscaping elements will include blue palo verde, mesquite and bird of paradise with other accent shrubs and groundcover.
The board is scheduled to vote on the measure Thursday. Construction timeline information was unavailable at press time.
