Phoenix ranks third among US cities with the most vacant land
Phoenix ranks just behind Dallas and Fort Worth for the amount of undeveloped land, and much of it is government-owned. According to a CommercialCafe report, Phoenix has more than 53,000 acres of vacant land and nearly 16,000 parcels. Some land is owned by the city, but much of it is state-owned, which requires would-be buyers to request an auction. But the city is seeking proposals for affordable housing on some of its parcels.
