This project was heard by the City Zoning Examiner on May 28, 2020, and the annexation for 14 acres was approved by the Mayor and Council on August 11th, 2020.
This proposal involves two parcels of approximately 12.44 acres (in Pima County) at 9062 East Eagle Feather Road and 9125 East Catalina Highway, to be annexed into the City of Tucson and rezoned to R-2 from R-1 and SR. The proposed density is 10.53 RAC.
This information is from the January 22, 2020 public meeting and the developer’s presentation.
The project is comprised of 126 (updated from 133) rental units, all 1 story, mostly stand alone, with small yards. Starting rent for the 1 bedroom unit will be $1,400. The 2 and 3 bedroom units will be the majority of units. The development will have a 5 foot wall around it. There is a phase 2 that will probably be the same density (10+ units per acre). The developers noted that they are only building one story units with a maximum height of 20 feet for the units and 25 feet for an undetermined common amenity. There will be one access off Catalina Highway with a deacceleration lane and a 30 foot ‘buffer’ zone. The access will lead to two gated access areas – one north and one west that will each have about 65 units.
The annexation and zoning changes are two separate processes but were considered simultaneously to “save time”. There was no public comment opportunity on the annexation process. The pre-submittal filing is publicly available to view on the Pima County website, Property Research Online, under the Activity Search tab. The Activity Number is T19PRE0183, filed on October 21, 2019. Note that the documents on that website indicate 147 units.
The presentation from the January 2020 public meeting shows a map with a Phase 2 area that is being considered as of Feb. 2021.
