Wickenburg is located 68 miles northwest of Phoenix AZ in the midst of the Saguaro Cactus Preserve. It has the same 2,200 elevation as Carefree AZ. It is on the newly designated route I-11, (Hwy 93) to Las Vegas. It takes about an hour to get to Phoenix Sky Harbor airport.
The majority of this property is in the Opportunity Zone, which will add huge benefits to the development. All utilities are to the property boundary plus there are five wells on site with two working and one active.
The Hassayampa River runs through it!
Wickenburg is known as “The Team Roping Roping Capital of the World“, with an increased population of 8,000 people in the season from November to April. However, locals practice the sport all year round.
Wickenburg is well known for its rehab-centers, however only a few are publicly known. It is a popular consensus that a Health Resort would be wildly popular here, although the Town would want it open to the public. The town would also want major conference/convention center space. There is a strong need for them to be able to book events. The Town is very cooperative and anxious to help. They have a study that indicates a need for a 100 room hotel, but we are projecting 150 to 180 rooms. The site allows for 600 rooms, which could include Timeshare, and Condos. This site is perfect for a destination Health Resort perched on a hill with forever 360 views. The air is clean and cool, the stars explosive, located right in the heart of Wickenburg’s Western favored Town. The common request is for an up-scale restaurant and shops such as one would find in the Boulders El Pedregal Shops or Sedona’s Tlaquepaque would be good examples. There are three golf courses in Wickenburg from five to ten minutes from this resort.
Wickenburg has extended its air strip to 6000 feet to accommodate jets, located about 10 minutes west of this site. Private planes come in to drop off celebrities for treatment, but the entourage doesn’t have a place to stay. So a destination Health Resort along with mixes use and Time Share would be able to take advantage of this opportunity. The property can be divided into parcels, such as Resort and Commercial; Townhomes; Casitas or Estate Lots. This Master Planned Community has zoning that allows flexibility in development.
The area is a bit rugged but the rewards are to have hilltop views on almost all sites. There are no height limitations or hillside restrictions.
Exclusive privacy and luxury can be the theme.
