Property at Ellsworth Loop, Ocotillo to be sold by town to developer

Developers are being sought to purchase six properties totaling 7.8 acres near Ellsworth Loop and Ocotillo roads that are owned by the Town of Queen Creek.

The town is seeking requests for proposals by 3 p.m. Dec. 10 at the Municipal Services Building, 22358 S. Ellsworth Road.

“The town is seeking to understand the offeror’s intent and development proposal based off the town’s vision for the 7.8-acre site through a well-written narrative outlining how the offeror intends to approach the development,” according to the request for proposals.

“In addition, offerors shall submit a conceptual site plan showing anticipated land uses and densities. No additional design work of any kind, such as elevations, is needed at this stage of the process,” it states.

Proposals will be reviewed and scored by the town’s evaluation panel and will serve as the basis for the interview between the offeror and the town’s evaluation panel, it states.

The following are the key considerations that the town strongly recommends incorporating in the proposal:

  • A phased approach or breakdown of purchase may be considered.
  • The proposal and development should address the vision outlined in the recent Town Center Update Plan.
  • The proposal and development should address the recently updated Downtown Core Design Guidelines.
  • The development should include mixed-uses that are geared towards pedestrian-oriented development.
  • The town would like to see designs that engage with surrounding developments and parcels.

For more information on the property, contact Jennifer Lindley, downtown development manager, at jennifer.lindley@queencreek.org.
