West Valley site once slated for power center now proposed for housing, retail
A mixed-use project with housing, retail and commercial has been proposed for a 101-acre site that was once slated for a regional shopping center in Surprise.
The site is located in the Asante area along Grande Avenue at the southwest corner of Pat Tillman Boulevard and 163rd Avenue.
The area is slated for thousands of additional single family homes and master-planned communities just west of the Loop 303 near the outskirts of Surprise as the city continues growing outward. But it has been missing commercial amenities for some residents.
The longtime landowner, New York-based Kimco Realty Corp., and its development partners, GTIS Partners and Clyde Capital, want to build a neighborhood-focused retail center with a secondary grocer, stores, sit-down restaurants and other uses like cottage homes and a site for a future employer in the health care, finance or tech industries.
About 51 acres will be comprised of neighborhood retail services and employment uses. The other 50 acres will see residential development with an estimated 282 units, said Adam Baugh, a land use attorney and partner at Phoenix-based Withey Morris PLC. The property will also feature trails that lead to a central park area with amenities like basketball courts, open spaces and a plaza.
