Plans have been announced for the building of a multi-use sports complex that will be built on a 36-acre spread in northwest Glendale in an area of new commercial and retail development.
The project is being spearheaded by the Glendale-based Mangat Group, which wants to see the project go up on land the firm purchased near Northern Avenue and Loop 101.
In a press release, it is noted that part of the site will be devoted to field hockey, “the first of its kind of Arizona.”
As envisioned, the project will also see the construction of sports fields for soccer as well as field tennis, with the complex facility itself expected to be large enough to seat up to 900 people.
Also included: a fully operational media center, several hotels, and restaurant space.
The project, soon to go through the zoning process, is expected to cost at least $50 million to complete. Construction could begin either later this year or early next year.
The Mangat Group is also currently developing a 16-acre truck stop in Black Canyon City in the central part of the state, with plans in the works for the construction of a gas station and several fast food restaurants in Tonopah in southwestern Arizona.
