“Village at San Tan”: Will Luxury Leased Living Coming to San Tan Valley?


A significant residential development proposal is in the works for San Tan Valley that promises a new paradigm of luxury living with unparalleled amenities.

The Empire Group has submitted an application to Pinal County proposing a residential community named "Village at San Tan". This project, under Cases #PZ-PA-020-21 / PZ-015-21 / PZ-PD-025-21, envisions 240 single-level homes available for lease, nested within a gated, professionally managed community.

Living Simplified
The development responds to market trends showing increasing demand from homebuyers for leased residences accompanied by resort-style amenities without the burdens of responsibility and maintenance. Village at San Tan is designed to offer a luxury living experience "by choice, not by necessity", promising a lifestyle simplified and stress-free for its residents.

Request Details
The application requests an amendment to the San Tan Valley Special Area Plan land use designation from "Community Center" and "Suburban Neighborhood" to solely "Community Center". This move will facilitate a Mixed-Use development at the southeast corner of Gantzel Road and Hash Knife Rd/Algarve Place.

Since being zoned for commercial use in 2006, the 36-acre property has remained vacant due to the diminishing need for big-box commercial spaces, a trend accelerated by the rise of online shopping. The proposed residential development is anticipated to increase demand for commercial and retail units at adjacent intersections, as time and trends show commercial ventures often follow residential developments.

The Community Vision
The proposed community will feature homes with 1, 2, and 3-bedroom configurations, ranging from 680 to 1,282 square feet. Each residence will be designed with modern, open floor plans, vaulted ceilings, abundant natural light, and private outdoor spaces. Residents will have access to 9 acres of common open space, promoting a friendly neighborhood environment while ensuring individual privacy.

Designed to be pet-friendly, the community also plans amenities including a resort-style pool, BBQ areas, a fitness center, a dog park, and a community center available for both community and private events. With on-call professional management staff and security teams, the developers aim to provide a living experience that balances luxury with peace of mind.

Amenities Highlight
  • Gated community with security
  • Professionally managed with on-call maintenance
  • Resort-style amenities including a pool and jacuzzi
  • Pet-friendly spaces, including a lush dog park and pet salon station
  • Smart-Home Technology packages for every residence
  • Rentable garages and storage units
  • Clubhouse with lounge and kitchen available for private reservations
  • Fitness Center, Yoga Area, and Outdoor Gaming Lawn

Public Hearings Scheduled
Two public hearings have been announced to discuss and evaluate the proposal:
  • October 21, 2021, at 9:00 AM at the Pinal County Planning and Zoning Commission Hearing (Board of Supervisors Chambers Historic Courthouse, 135 North Pinal St., Florence)
  • A date to be determined for the Pinal County Board of Supervisors Hearing.
