By Roland Murphy for Arizona Builder’s Exchange
The City of Goodyear last week approved the final plat for a 38-acre parcel in Estrella Mountain Ranch that will be subdivided into lots for 106 single-family homes.
Owner Newland Communities, Inc., had requested the approval so it can begin preparations to ultimately market the site, known as Parcel 9.8, as a “shovel-ready” property to a SFR builder.
The property is located on the north side of West Calistoga Drive, west of South 184th Avenue. Improvements to the land and implementation of water, sewer and other infrastructure development will now move into the permitting phase.
Under the details of the request, the subdivision will feature 13 open space, landscape and drainage tracts, creating an open space total of 9.9 acres, or 26 percent of the total parcel. Amenities to be built into the site will include a pocket park with a shaded “tot lot” and a ramada.
Lots on the property will range from just less than 7,500SF up to 15KSF. Minimum lot size was listed as 7,200SF, with 60’ widths and 120’ depths.
Newland Communities is the owner. No timeline to begin site development has been established.
