Sun Valley represents the single largest fee title property abutting state land and the White Tank Mountain Regional Park. The Property is approximately 12,155 acres and is readily accessible by the 28-mile Sun Valley Parkway. Sun Valley Parkway is a four-lane, median divided parkway, that connects with Interstate 10, to the south, providing access to Los Angeles and Southern California Region to the west and Central Phoenix, Sky Harbor Airport and the southwest market to the east. To the north, the Sun Valley Parkway connects to Bell Road, a major east-west thoroughfare, through the City of Surprise, the Sun City communities, and easterly to Phoenix and Scottsdale. Sun Valley Parkway and the Loop 303 are emerging as major growth corridors in the Phoenix area. There have been over 5,000 jobs created in the Loop 303 employment corridor in the past 36 months (See Employment Study on pages 10 & 11). Over the past 6 years, Arizona has been in the top 10 in population growth. As traditional growth areas in Maricopa, Southeast, Northeast and Northwest Valley are becoming constrained and reaching buildout, the West Valley continues to experience rapid growth and accelerating land values.
