Developers of a new Chandler business park have returned to City Council seeking site plan approval, having addressed issues previously raised by an amended FEMA floodplain designation for the site, which became effective last November (AZBEX, Sept. 25, 2015).
Arizona Commercial Real Estate Services brought its plan for the RMB Business Park in September, but the project was discontinued to allow the project owner to improve drainage at the 15-acre site located north of the NEC of Arizona Avenue and Ryan Road.
The business park will be comprised of six buildings with an interior truck yard and wells with a total building area of 201KSF. A pair of driveways along Arizona Avenue will provide access to the property, which will include 450 parking spaces – only 364 of which are required – to address potential future growth.
The revised site plan includes a new retention basin and deepens another to four feet. The new basin will be six feet deep and enclosed by a wrought iron fence with gate access. Building floor area and parking spaces were reduced to make room for the new structure.
The architectural style is industrial, with tilt-up panels, metal accents, full height glass, modulated roof lines, and stone extruded detailing.
The City Council approved the rezoning and Preliminary Development Plan for the project at its May 12 meeting.
The owner has engaged Euthenics Architecture and Interiors to design the project. No GC or project timeline were identified.
