I am looking for the land in AZ. Looking at Tucson Extended Northwest. Please give me your opinion on the growth prospects there in 10-20 years down the road.
Thanks a lot in advance!

Default Northwest area growth

Marana is growing rapidly, with lots of development going on.

Take a look here:

10-20 years down the road?? I doubt you will find anything to buy then.,
What are you looking for exactly? This area is building up sooooo fast its scary. We would consider moving if we could afford to. Its just totally
going development crazy, destroying what most of us moved here for.
So 10-20 years from now, who knows, some joke it will be almost wall to wall housing and developent from Tucson to Phoenix, they may not be that far off.

Default Yeah...

... from what I understand Tucson's general growth plan is expecting major development along 4 major routes - Northwest along I-10 thorugh Marana and up towards Phoenix, North along Oracle Road through the Oro Valley and Catalina, South along I-19 towards Green Valley, and SouthEast along I-10 towards Vail.

The only major area that is not slated for major targeted growth is out along Ajo highway (86) towards Three Points. There will certainly be growth in that area too (new developments are already cropping up near Ryan Field) but probably in a slower, more haphazard way.

The northwest is growing VERY quickly, and is turning out to be a better area of town as far as schools and crime are concerned. Unfortunately, the city is reluctant to address the growing traffic concerns that stems from that growth up northwest, and as a result, traffic is quickly getting out of hand, making it difficult to commute at times, especially as there is really only one through fare in Tucson in I-10, and it only really goes around and not through the city, although the city's growing on both sides of the interstate now. I've actually heard of the city considering stopping new building northwest until they can address the traffic issues they're having. But if the commute or traffic doesn't bother you, then it's a nice area to settle in. I owned a home in the northwest for several years and it appreciated much faster than the rest of the city, nearly doubling in price in 3 years.
