Phoenix, AZ – Avison Young announced today the $12.6 million sale of a 30.3-acre land parcel for the development of a build-to-rent (BTR) residential development. The site is located at Watson Road and Interstate 10 in Buckeye, AZ.

The buyer, Phoenix-based real estate investment and development company, Modus Development was represented by Will French with Cushman & Wakefield.   

Modus Development has plans to develop approximately 400 apartment units and single-family rentals.

“Our Avison Young team developed a multi-tiered marketing strategy with the goal of selling to a residential developer.
