Apartments, gas station and drive-thru approved near Glendale Airport

Posted

The Glendale City Council approved a general plan amendment and a rezone Tuesday that allows an apartment complex, gas station and fast food restaurant to be built on a 10-acre property near the Glendale Municipal Airport.

Plans for the site, at the southwest corner of 107th and Northern avenues, include a 74-unit luxury apartment complex with both one- and two-story units, a fast food restaurant with a drive-thru and an eight-pump gas station with convenience store and an automated car wash. Circle K is interested in building on the site.

The land was annexed into Glendale in early June. It had been under Maricopa County jurisdiction. The site is surrounded mostly by houses, but the still-developing Glen Harbor Business Park is immediately to the east. The property is also just less than a mile north of Glendale Airport.

The general plan change allows for commercial use and for a denser residential. The apartment complex, which occupies 6.3 acres of the 10-acre property, will be 11.7 units per acre. It had been designated for 3.5-5 units per acre under the general plan.

The rezone changes the site’s zoning from planned shopping center to a planned area development to allow for the mix of residential and commercial use.
