Contractors, developers, and small business owners have been utilizing our existing virtual services to ensure that their projects continue on schedule! Maricopa continues to ensure work gets done while still being responsible and following public health guidelines and instructions. Below is a recap of development near The Wells, one of the many exciting projects happening around our city. During the planning and development process the project may change slightly from what is depicted below.

Fast & Friendly Car Wash

Fast & Friendly Car Wash has received entitlement and design approval. Ready to pull building permits, this will be Fast & Friendly’s second Maricopa location. All components of the development including La Quinta consist of approximately 1.36 million sq ft with a total investment of $157 million.

Bahama Bucks

Bahama Bucks is filling in the eastern side of The Wells development, and will offer drinks and ice to cool down in the Arizona sun. Onsite improvement and building permits have been issued, and the project has begun construction.

Retail Shops

A shell building is near completion next to Walgreens. One tenant, a dental office, has already claimed one of the two tenant spaces. The other tenant is not yet disclosed, but the total of both businesses will total nearly 10,000 square feet of space.


Nearly ready to open its’ doors, a new Walgreens will be the second Maricopa location for the drugstore chain.The main structure of the building was completed before the Great Recession, but has been rejuvenated alongside the new adjacent developments.

With A+ Charter School and Oasis at The Wells apartments building just north of Walmart, The Wells is rapidly becoming a live, work, play, learn environment center. Further, The Wells has proved that business can be successful in Maricopa even when not along the main stretch of John Wayne Parkway.
