AZ Central – Desert Ridge complex construction set to begin

A new apartment development is planned in a part of the region popular with homebuyers, shoppers and employers.

Construction is scheduled to begin on a 370-unit apartment complex in north Phoenix Desert Ridge community next month.

Resmark Cos. is partnering with Greystar to develop the complex on 14 acres at the northeast corner of Deer Valley Drive and 56th Street. Rents for the apartments in the 10-building complex aren’t yet available.

Greystar paid $10.5 million for the land earlier this year. The site was last purchased in 2007 just as the region’s housing market crashed.

Near-record home sales in the region, falling apartment vacancy rates and investors paying high prices for multi-family complexes are enticing apartment developers now. Several large complexes are under construction in the Valley.

According to Marcus & Millichap, metro Phoenix’s apartment vacancy rate has fallen just below 9 percent for the first time since early 2007.

“Desert Ridge is a highly desirable and popular residence choice,” said Ziv Cohen of Resmark in a statement when the complex’s development was announced.

The 5,700-acre community is being developed on former Arizona state land.

Most of the residential land west of 56th Street in Desert Ridge has already been developed, leaving large parcels east of 56th Street for future growth.

AZ Central – Developer gets CityNorth land

CityNorth and Desert Ridge, once expected to be the crown jewels of Phoenix’s expansion into empty lands north of Loop 101 in northeast Phoenix, have been turned over to a new developer.

As a result of a long, detailed lawsuit, Gray Development Group of Phoenix has won control of the undeveloped 140 acres of CityNorth and with it, master developer responsibilities at Desert Ridge.

Desert Ridge is a 5,700-acre master-planned development centered at Tatum Boulevard and Loop 101. CityNorth, located on the northwest corner of 56th Street and Loop 101, is planned as a large, multiple-use development with upscale shopping, homes and hotels.

A group called Northeast Phoenix Partners controlled the land after winning the initial auction of the Desert Ridge commercial core in 1993. The Klutznick Co., the original developers of CityNorth, took over the partnership several years later.

NPP got into trouble when exercising its rights as master developer clashed with Gray.

The principals of the Klutznick Co., John and Daniel Klutznick, closed up shop and moved out of town a year ago.

They were not available for comment.

Since the mediation began, lawyers in the case have not commented.

Others involved in the growth and development of Desert Ridge were pleased that the lawsuit is over.

Former Phoenix City Councilwoman Peggy Neely, who as a representative for the area was deeply involved in the dispute and Desert Ridge generally, said she hopes growth in the area can resume now that the legal cloud has dissipated.

“Hopefully the future of Desert Ridge can once again move forward with the settlement of this lawsuit,” she said, “and the community and the city can again see this highly desirable area become a productive commercial and residential community again.”

Doug Dickson, president of the Desert Ridge Community Association, said the resolution should help clarify the future of CityNorth.

“To the extent that this accelerates growth in the retail and commercial development of Desert Ridge, it is a positive and welcomed event for our community.”

AZ Central – Desert Ridge area to become bioscience, tech hub

Efforts are under way to develop the Desert Ridge area south of Loop 101 into a bioscience and technology hub, just days after Mayor Greg Stanton announced plans for the Desert Ridge Bioscience Technology Collaborative.

According to Dr. Wyatt Decker, chief executive of the Mayo Clinic in Arizona, more concrete plans could take form within six months, although full development of the plan is likely to take much longer.

“We worked with the mayor to develop the concept,” Decker said, “and we are pleased with his support for Mayo.”

Mayo Hospital is the key medical facility in northeast Phoenix. It occupies 210 acres at 56th Street and Mayo Boulevard, south of Loop 101. It opened in 1998.

Under the Desert Ridge Specific Plan, development in the area between 56th and 64th streets, Loop 101 and the Central Arizona Project canal must be related to or supportive of medical uses, including retail and residential.

Stanton’s plan, announced during his inauguration speech on Tuesday, would expand that idea west to Tatum Boulevard. Some non-medical users already are in place in the area, including American Express and Sumco, which manufactures silicon wafers for the microprocessing and computer industries.

Decker said representatives from Mayo, Arizona State University and the Mayor’s Office have begun working on the next steps. They want to develop a “clear vision” for the future, while showing “meaningful progress” as soon as they can, Decker said.

He foresees medical startups based on ideas generated at Mayo, ASU or elsewhere.

She said there has been plenty of interest in the land throughout the Desert Ridge and Paradise Ridge areas — large, mostly undeveloped tracts of land along Loop 101 in northeast Phoenix.

“The question is whether we bring it out now or wait for recovery,” she said. “You typically would not dispose of >

The Arizona State Land Department manages the State Land Trust and controls 9.2million acres after selling or leasing 1.6 million acres. The department is required to “enhance value and optimize economic return” on the land for its beneficiaries, primarily public schools.

“We want the trust to realize the appreciation of value in a better market,” Baier said.

She said some of the land in question already has restrictions, including a ban on buildings that would block the view of the Mayo Clinic from the freeway. The department could come to an agreement with the city to determine how the land could be used.

AZ Central – Desert Ridge developer on defaut of 32 acre parcel..

by Michael Clancy – Feb. 10, 2011 12:47 PM
The Arizona Republic

Gray Development Group is in default on land it bought in the Desert Ridge area in 2004.

Vanessa Hickman, deputy commissioner of the Arizona State Land Department, said a default notice was sent in December for the 32-acre parcel on the northeastern corner of 56th Street and Loop 101.

The default is the second for the Gray group and at least the sixth in the Desert Ridge area.

The Gray parcel sold in May 2004 for more than $1 million per acre, making it one of the most expensive parcels the State Land Department ever sold.

The department originally owned all land in the 5,700-acre, master-planned development. Since 1993, it has been rolling parcels out for auction and subsequent development.

But the recession has had a serious effect on land values – driving those who acquired land at the height of the market into default – and the department’s ability to sell parcels.

Under the rules of state land sales, developers are on a seven-year payment schedule. When payments are missed, default notices go out. The notices trigger a 60-day period that gives developers time to make good on their deals. If they fail, the land reverts to the Land Department.

Hickman said the state has not reclaimed the Gray parcel yet.

Gray was scheduled to go before the Phoenix Planning Commission on Wednesday to amend the Desert Ridge Specific Plan as it pertains to the parcel. But that effort was withdrawn earlier in the day.

Gray’s previous default was on a 41-acre parcel north of Desert Ridge Marketplace. The company last year won a lawsuit claiming the master developer of Desert Ridge, Northeast Phoenix Partners, hindered its efforts to develop the parcel.
