Lots of Advantages

Being an Arizona Gold Certified Site means Ak-Chin’s industrial park, Santa Cruz Commerce Center, has met the state’s highest criteria for completing all the proper pre-development work, satisfying all permitting requirements, having utilities and other services available at the site, and being best poised to host new employment-users immediately.

The Commerce Center offers approximately 45 acres that are immediately available for development in lots from 1.2 acres and up. All land has been cleared and leveled.

Fronting the Maricopa-Casa Grande Highway and close to other  major transportation corridors, it is less than five minutes from the Ak-Chin Regional Airport. Recent improvements on Maricopa-Casa Grande Highway have provided flood and drainage mitigation adjacent to the Commerce Center and created left turn lanes at both Murphy Road and Antone Street to provide easier access to the industrial park.

What do our tenants say?

With a shared heritage in farming, Ak-Chin and Hickman’s have cultivated a strong partnership. In an environment committed to product excellence, long-term environmental sustainability, and high standards for food safety, our business has been able to grow and expand.

We had never leased in our company’s history. We were a little nervous to do so. I can tell you honestly that Ak-Chin has been great to work with. They took the time and effort to listen to our concerns and wishes and structured a lease that works well for us and our style of business.
