Newland Communities is experiencing a surge of growth in its Goodyear master-planned community, Estrella.
In addition to a steady stream of home sales, new commercial projects are underway — including a Walgreens and Banner Health center.
Currently under construction, Walgreens will open this fall in Estrella’s Mountain Ranch Marketplace. In line with the shopping center’s LEED Gold certification, the Estrella Walgreens will showcase a new layout including sustainable features such as electric vehicle charging stations, active daylight harvesting and high efficiency heating/cooling and plumbing.
The store interior will also be revamped with a heavier emphasis on upscale finishing and lighting. Deals are currently in the works with several additional retailers, to be announced later this year, who will also be joining Mountain Ranch Marketplace.
“Our neighborhoods are filled with everything from young families to retirees, and a store like Walgreens will help serve the varying needs of our residents,” said Lynneah Hudson, Newland Communities’ regional marketing director.
Right next door to Walgreens, Estrella has joined forces with Irgens and Banner Health to announce the development of Mountain Ranch Medical Commons, a state-of-the-art, 18,000 SF Class A medical office facility.
Banner Health will provide primary care services as the anchor medical tenant. The single-story structure will offer efficient, custom-designed medical space, upscale amenities and a sustainable design that conforms to standards of the Green Building Initiative.
Construction is set to begin this fall and the project is slated to be completed in mid-2013.
Estrella is home to more than 12,000 residents. Amenities include the Golf Club of Estrella, two lakes which span across 72 acres, and more than 20 miles of trails and parks woven throughout the community.
Estrella also houses three schools within the community including two K-8 elementary schools and one high school. The community also hosts many events throughout the year such as: a farmers market, monthly family outings, live music events and the upcoming outdoor performance of Ballet Arizona.
