Greenlight Communities Cabana at Bullard apartments

After approval by city council, a “farm-to-couch” project moved ahead, with Greenlight Communities purchasing land for its proposed Cabana at Bullard apartments. 

Goodyear’s development is hardly entirely “farm-to-warehouse”—a new project can be described as “farm-to-couch.”

On Aug. 24, Goodyear City Council approved a rezoning request for a proposed 336-unit multi-family residential development on the northwest corner of North Bullard Avenue and West Van Buren Street.

On Nov. 24, Greenlight Communities purchased the property for $2.8 million, according to commercial real estate tracker vizzda.com.

The apartments will be called Cabana at Bullard.

Greenlight’s website says it has “Beautiful communities for the budget-conscious … We provide high-quality, affordable options that create opportunities for real connection because we believe renters should never have to choose between the lifestyle they want and a community they love.”

Greenlight’s website said it is building Cabana Encanto at 2323 N. 150th Drive, near Litchfield Park and Cabana 99th in Glendale.

Three other Cabana apartment buildings are leasing in Phoenix and Tempe.

The new Goodyear location on Bullard and Van Buren would be convenient for those working at the new Amazon robotics facility on Bullard and Yuma Road nearby.

Multiple other “farm-to-warehouse” projects are blossoming on both sides of Bullard between Van Buren and Yuma. On the north side of Van Buren, however, many acres of farmland are undeveloped.

According to the Aug. 24 request approved by city council, “The proposed development will consist of 114 studios, 162 one-bedroom units and 60 two-bedroom units. The buildings will be three stories at a height of approximately 38 feet.”
