I have an opportunity to buy some land there. Im out of state. Does that area look like it will grow in the next 10 years or so? It seems like it is in a prime location once the major cities grow outward.

How is the area? Is a nice?

You may want to post this in the Arizona forum. I live in Tucson, used to live in Phoenix and passed by this general area a thousand times over the years and had no idea that Arizona City even existed.

I wouldn't want to live out there, but if I was a gambling man and wanted to have some land zoned as commercial and wait it might be worth it. Sits near two interstates, two rail lines and I wouldn't be surprised if in 20 years the area from Casa Grande to Eloy starts turning into Arizona's version of the Inland Empire with warehouses and manufacturing plants dotting the area.

Phoenix is hemmed in by reservations on the south. The only direction Phoenix is growing in the next 10 years is west out towards Buckeye. Tucson is growing, but doubt it will reach that far north in a decade.

When I first considered moving to Az, I looked at Arizona City. Honestly, the place gave me the heebie jeebies. That was most likely due to a recent dream of being 10 years old and living in a very desolate place in the desert. When I drove thru Az City I was overwhelmed with the same feeling of foreboding as I had in my dream. It was a feeling I don't recall ever having before. I have never lived in or near the desert as I was grew up among tall pines and lots of rivers and streams.

As for Az City, there isn't much there besides a truck stop on interstate 10. One would think being at the intersection of 2 major interstate hwys would be a good location but not in this case.
Casa Grande, up the road from Az City towards Phoenix is growing rapidly. New electric car plant just opened, there is a walmart distribution center, a Frito Lay plant amongst other businesses.
New housing going up constantly, including prices.

I'm going to watch the water shortages very closely this year before making any decisions about the desert sw.
