The corner of Van Buren Street and Fairway Drive in Avondale is going to get a lot busier soon.

Driving the news: Nothing is happening at the intersection yet, but developers have submitted plans for a pair of luxury apartment complexes.

  • Fairway Residences will have 286 units on a vacant, 14-acre lot on the southwest corner of the intersection.
  • Cerro Vista, which will be just east of the intersection on the north side of Van Buren, will include another 249 units.
  • The northern side of the Cerro Vista project will border the Fairway Commerce Center, a planned logistics center on Fairway and Corporate Drive that’s nearing completion.

Other nearby multifamily housing projects are well underway.

  • Two projects, with a combined 681 apartment units, are under construction on the north side of Van Buren, just west at 119th Avenue.

Details: Fairway Residences will consist of multiple two- and three-story buildings with a maximum of 24 units apiece.

  • It will include amenities such as a rideshare pickup and drop-off lane, a greenbelt feature, a clubhouse, pool and spa and a pet amenity space.
  • Cerro Vista will have five buildings of two or three stories with “luxurious urban loft apartments.”
  • The design of the complex is intended to encourage residents to walk in open spaces and “foster connections and relationships among neighbors, while respecting privacy.”

What’s next: Both projects’ plans are approved by the city, but engineering permits have yet to be issued and no construction has begun.
