A 372-unit apartment complex is planned on 18.6 acres east of Sossaman Road on the south side of Elliot Road in Mesa.
The Mesa Planning and Zoning Board recently voted unanimously in a consent agenda with other items to approve a site plan review for the development. Board member Shelly Allen was absent.
The multiple-residence development is in Hawes Crossing, Planner Sean Pesek said at a study session prior to the April 13 meeting.
“When we look at the site plan, you can see the buildings fronting Elliot and 79th Street are all pushed up toward the building setback line,” he said. “The applicant is proposing 782 parking stalls — 375 covered. There’s also a 30-foot-wide open space along the west side of the property with the meandering trail that is a requirement of the development agreement.”
Brian Andersen of BMA Architecture LLC is the applicant; Acero Hawes LLC is the owner.
The residential rental community will include a clubhouse with business and lounge area, swimming pool and spa, an outdoor lounge, barbecue areas, a fitness center and recreation area, according to a written project narrative.
“The project will appeal to working professionals, employees and young families that desire a unique, amenity rich and pedestrian friendly lifestyle near major employment hubs and distinctly local restaurants and retail. This project provides a needed housing option that is currently underserved in this area,” it states. “There are five dwelling unit types in the project. Two of the unit types have one bedroom, two of the unit types have two bedrooms and one of the unit types has three bedrooms. The development will include 150 one-bedroom units, 186 two-bedroom units and 36 three-bedroom units, for a total of 372 units provided.”
The seven-member Mesa Planning and Zoning Board conducts hearings and makes recommendations to council on requests for changes in zoning and on required site plans.
It also considers and recommends changes in the city’s long-range plans and in the municipal code concerning planning and zoning matters. Members are appointed for staggered terms of three years, according to the city’s website.
