Signaling the continued positive momentum in Glendale, the Glendale City Council has approved the $450 million dollar master planned community, StoneHaven, which represents the first major master planned community in the city in more than a decade.
StoneHaven is a 395 acre residential and retail project that will be located near 91st Avenue and Camelback Road. It will bring more than 1,300 new single family homes to the area. The project calls for a new grocery store anchored retail and restaurants. StoneHaven will also bring new revenue to the City of Glendale; $49 million according to an independent study.
Two iconic names are behind the project, Pulte Homes and John F. Long Properties.
StoneHaven has enjoyed widespread support including endorsements from Glendale Mayor Jerry Weiers, the Glendale Chamber of Commerce, The Glendale Star, the Arizona Rock Products Association, and the more than 1,600 residents and businesses that have signed petitions in support of the project, including many in nearby Westgate.
Jim Miller, Director of Real Estate for John F. Long Properties, said, “We are proud to continue our investment in Glendale and helping to drive its renewed momentum. As business and opportunities continue to grow in Glendale, its new residents will need places to live and shop.”
In a recent editorial in the Glendale Star, Glendale Mayor Jerry Weiers said, “We should consider ourselves fortunate that we also have business leaders who stuck it out during hard times and are now prepared to invest in our future. We need to respond with the enthusiasm that such an offer deserves. By embracing projects like StoneHaven, we can make Glendale the very best it can be.”
