The massive commercial and residential project called Prasada in Surprise, Ariz., is moving ahead. The project will include single-family houses, an auto mall, and as more people come into the area, a regional mall and office buildings, followed by more high-density housing. The work is expected to create 14,600 construction jobs over the two decades it could take to complete. "At the end of the day, it would be the largest commercial development in the state of Arizona," said Jeff Mihelich, director of Surprise Community Development.
