Thank you for your interest in this project.

You have received notice in the mail because we have filed an application with the City of Mesa for the site shown below to develop a multi-family housing development. In light of CoVid-19, we have had to reexamine our approach to community outreach. This website is our attempt to engage with the community while respecting social distancing. In lieu of an in-person neighborhood meeting, we held our first virtual open house on September 9, 2020. Since this meeting, we have made some major modifications to our plans to respond to the comments we received. We invite you to join a follow-up neighborhood meeting to discuss the project. The details of the virtual open house are below.

February 24, 2021 from 6:00 pm to 7:00 pm

Click here to access Zoom conference on February 24th.

Please email ap@berryriddell.com if you would like a calendar invite or have any questions about using Zoom.

 

In the meantime, please review our proposal below and contact us if you would like to discuss it in further detail. We look forward to hearing from you!

Site

The approximate 2.5-acre site is located at the southeast corner of University Drive and Miller Street.  As shown in the aerial to the left, the site consists of parking and former businesses.

The site is located approximately one-third of a mile east of the Hillsong College and church campus. This development will be available to anyone wishing to rent an apartment, but is intended to provide housing to students of Hillsong College.

Rio Paradiso

Rio Paradiso is a multi-family development located at Washington Street and Parkside Drive with state-of-the-art amenities, including a resident's lounge, resort-style pool, conference rooms, cabanas, picnic area, and fitness center. This luxury community is indicative of the level of quality to expect at Stalwart Housing.

Hillsong College

Hillsong College was established in 1983 and offers education in ministry training, biblical foundations, worship music, and pastoral leadership. Originally founded in Sydney, Australia, the Hillsong College opened the Phoenix location in August of 2019 with one to three-year programs in faith-based vocational education.

Process

We filed a formal application with the City of Mesa on November 16, 2020 for Design Review approval, Site Plan approval, and for the granting of a Development Incentive Permit for the site. Although we anticipated requesting a parking reduction by approximately 15 spaces, the development team removed 5 units from the proposed site plan, thus eliminating the need for the parking reduction. This also allowed the southernmost building to be two-stories in height instead of three-stories as initially proposed. On February 8, 2021, we filed our first resubmittal. Next, the City of Mesa will schedule hearing dates for our case to be heard.

We will continue to keep you informed and will update this website when we receive the public hearing dates from the City of Mesa. We continue to welcome your feedback throughout the process, so that we can design a project that is compatible with the existing developments within the community, and be a good neighbor. Please use the contact form below to get in touch with us. We look forward to hearing from you.

 

Contact Us

Typically, one of the first steps in this process is to meet with the community to discuss the proposal.  Unfortunately, current events preclude us from holding an Open House to seek your input.

Nonetheless, we still want to hear from you and eagerly seek your input of our project.  Please use this contact form to share your thoughts with us directly.

 

We would be happy to meet with you in a way that still respects social distancing.  Please reach out to us to discuss your preferred method of communication, i.e. WebEx, Zoom, an individual meeting in your front yard respecting social distancing, phone call, email, etc.

 

We look forward to getting your input, and look forward to the opportunity to meet with you!
