It’s been more than a year in the making—Douglas Allred Company has been pushing the city of Chandler towards more flexible development and use standards in the Price Corridor. The city studied the concept and in January approved changes recommended by its consultant, The Maguire Group. Keeping the purpose of the corridor for corporate-scale development—the city changed regulations to permit more development flexibility.

Now Allred is ready to show what that flexibility means with the completion of Allred Park Place at the gateway of Price Corridor and Loop 202 San Tan Freeway. Tomorrow night, the Planning and Zoning Commission will consider giving its nod to plans for increased building height and a mix of commercial uses for the Allred parcels, which are the remaining undeveloped parcels in Price Corridor.

Douglas Allred Company is bringing its multiple parcels under one Planned Area Development. The 73 acre site, on both sides of Price Road at the freeway, proposes to include midrise office towers, a hotel—potentially rising to 8 stories—, conference center, service and retail uses. Balmer Architecture Group designed the concept plan and set the tone for the project’s complement to the existing Allred Park Place development.

Building to Eight Stories

Allred’s plans create a comprehensive business campus offering supporting uses to the primary employment purposes of the Price Corridor.  The company plans an eight story tall Drury Inn & Suites adjoining Loop 202. A pair of three-to-four story office buildings are proposed in the same area southeast of the Price Road-Loop 202 interchange. A second eight-story building with conference center and design for knowledge-intensive business is located west of Price Road and south of Willis Road. Parking garages are also proposed to serve the developments. No groundbreaking is identified in the proposal—and project representatives said timing for construction is being studied by the company. Allred has been one of the few office parks in which spec buildings were constructed in the past few years (AZBEX, Oct. 5, 2012)
