Example Projects

Lifetime Fitness Traffic Impact Study | Peoria, AZ

  Lifetime Fitness Traffic Impact Study

Lifetime Fitness sought to build a new facility on the northwest corner of 67th Avenue and Hatfield within the City of Peoria. Development of this corner required purchase of an existing property from Christ’s Church of the Valley (CCV). Greenlight staff worked closely with the owner, zoning attorney, public involvement team, and site civil engineer to address traffic concerns from the City and adjacent neighbors. The final traffic impact study was completed and approved on the first submittal. Following study approval, Project Manager Scott Kelley provided support at the City’s Planning & Zoning Commission and Town Council meetings. The project was approved unanimously in both cases.

Rio Estrella Parking Study | Avondale, AZ

Rio Estrella Parking Study

Owners of the proposed Rio Estrella industrial project sought to entitle 270,000 square feet of warehouse and industrial use. During planning review, concerns raised by the City regarding parking needs based on City code led to the need to perform a parking study. Greenlight prepared the study and calculated expected parking demand based on national parking studies. The parking study demonstrated that actual demand would be much less than calculated using City code. The owner was able to make compromises with the City based on the study findings in order to bring the project planning review to a successful conclusion.

Sunrise Promenade at Lake Pleasant Traffic Signal | Peoria, AZ

Sunrise Promenade at Lake Pleasant Traffic Signal

As part of their offsite infrastructure improvements, the developer of this project requested traffic signal design support at the intersection of Lake Pleasant Parkway at Happy Valley Road. The existing traffic signal consisted of 3 legs; however, a 4th leg was being added with the opening of the project. Greenlight provided a quick turn around on project plans and review comments to keep the design schedule moving. In addition, Greenlight provided post design services for reviewing shop drawings and responding to requests for information (RFIs).
