The Estrella Gin Business Park site is a 50+ acre, city-owned parcel located just west of the intersection of Edison Road and Roosevelt Avenue. Planned to be developed through a public-private partnership, it is the City's leading project to spur local economic growth. The goal for the business park is to provide employment opportunities for local residents by allowing expanding businesses to remain in the community and facilitating the relocation of industry to Maricopa.
Approximately 40 acres is available for commercial development, anticipated to include a mix of industrial, office and flex space. The first phase of development is planned to be an approximately 36,000 square foot building with suites for multiple tenants. The Boyer Company, the project developer, and brokerage firm DTZ are currently seeking prospective users for the business park.
