Exactly 74 upscale apartments are planned for construction in a growing residential section of Glendale, Arizona.
What is being called Northern 107 will go up on currently vacant land at the southwest corner of 107th Avenue and Northern Avenue on the east side of the city.
The project, on a 9.9-acre site, will also include 4,500 square feet of restaurant space, along with a convenience store and automated car wash.
Members of the Glendale Planning Commission have now approved rezoning the site from medium density residential to high density residential in order to get the project underway.
According to city documents, the project will see the construction of two apartment buildings: one with one floor only, and the other with two.
As a result of public input, the project has been scaled down from an earlier proposed 91 units. The new configuration will see 42 two-story apartments, and 32 one-story units.
Plans also call for the project, which is being designed by the Tucson-based architectural firm of Norris Design, to have what is described as a “centrally located amenity area,” and will include landscaping and screening walls.
The new zoning designation for the site is expected to be reviewed in early June by the Glendale City Council, with construction on the project possibly beginning later this year.
