Saint Holdings, a Pinal County land holding corporation, has big plans for Coolidge.
At Wednesday’s Chamber of Commerce luncheon, Matthew McCormick, VP of acquisitions for Saint Holdings LLC, presented on what the company hopes to bring to the expanding city.
One future development would be on approximately 11,000 acres along the southern end of Coolidge, purchased from the city of Mesa over the course of two years.
Known as the “Heritage Project,” the hub is to feature master-planned communities, educational areas, health care centers and even an agricultural community similar to Gilbert’s Agritopia.
The Heritage development will likely feature some retail, including restaurants, and even a lake that would be open to the general public.
But Heritage is just one portion of a project that aims to bring an influx of businesses to Coolidge.
Another portion is Inland Port Arizona – which has been tentatively renamed Central Arizona Commerce Park East.
Located three miles north of Interstate 10, the park would bring in major manufacturers as well as a number of distribution centers.
The 2,700-acre park could also become a “megasite” – which would make it one of the few sites with that classification in the country.
Currently, Saint Holdings is still in the process of working with the city government to get all of the portions of that property annexed into the city limits.
Lots at the site will range from 70 acres to combined lots of 2,000. The project would also feature a wastewater treatment plant. However, development on that plant will not begin until the first major business makes landfall at the industrial park.
