Chandler's vacant land is starting to run out

Chandler’s economic growth may start to wane as the amount of vacant land begins to run out. 

Chandler’s Economic Development Director Micah Miranda says that only 6% of the city’s raw land is available for development. 

“We want to make sure we have building product that takes into account the fact that we have very limited land left," Miranda said. "And so we want to see new and more dynamic and interesting architecture.”

Miranda says that vacancy is a multi-pronged issue, as the goals of each developer need to coincide with both land availability and the image Chandler wants to be known for.
