New rental community being built in Queen Creek

Project will be adjacent to Schnepf Farms

Posted

A new rental community is going up near Schnepf Farms in Queen Creek.

The Empire Group of Cos. is working with Schnepf Farm owners Mark and Carrie Schnepf to develop a community that incorporates the farm’s attributes and history. The Village at Schnepf Farms will be at the northwest corner of Rittenhouse and Cloud roads. The community is under construction and targeted to begin leasing in late 2022.

It will be a gated community set on 13 acres adjacent to the family farm. The build-for-rent community will offer 144 one- two- and three-bedroom single-story homes with smart technology and private landscaped backyards. Interior design and architecture will incorporate modern farmhouse elements to honor the history of the farm and its surrounding areas. 

“Queen Creek is a rapidly growing area with limited options for renters. We expect the Village at Schnepf farms to appeal to employees of Schnepf Farms and people looking to move to the area,” stated Richard Felker, founding partner of Empire Group, in a press release.

In addition to walking paths and a neighborhood dog park, the community will feature a resort-style pool and clubhouse with a fully equipped fitness center. There also will have covered parking, electric car charging stations, a dog wash salon, and barbecue and lawn game area. 

“Residents of the Village at Schnepf farms will enjoy picking their own fresh produce, living within walking distance from the garden and the farm’s many other amenities and entertainment,” stated Shelby Duplessis, president of land development for Empire Group. 

Village at Schnepf Farms marks the seventh build-for-rent community in Maricopa County for the Empire Group of Companies in the past 18 months.
