Tempe Arts and Urban..

Our friend, Nate Hobley, joined Lori and I at the new Tempe Center for the Arts (TCA)last night for a preview of a new urban development at Mill and Ash called Mosaic. We were very impressed with the new arts center and with the plans for Mosaic which will be built above a Whole Foods Market. Along with previews of the TCA and tons of information about the new project, the evening was filled with good food, drinks, entertainment and a very enthusiastic message from Hugh Hallman .(Tempe’s Mayor)

Several other politicians were present and I had the good fortune to run in to my old friend (former High School coach) Ben Arredondo who is a long time member of the Tempe City Council.

There was a lot of excitement, even for a “dreary” real estate market, concerning the future potential for creating an “urban” feel and life style in down town Tempe. This will be an interesting market to watch and to be a part of. We have started watching these properties very closely. If you should ever want or need any information.. “Just Call Nick!”

    My Old Downtown was just revitalized and Silver Spring has become more urban now. Hey, it’s much better than vacant buildings and scary bums and winos hanging around at night. We just recently got an arts walk. Hope your area gets revitalized too – I think you will like it and it will do great things for real estate there!

    ABQ downtown has been undergoing revitalization. I think it is great to see these urban centers going in. This looks like a great one in Tempe AZ! – Ashley

    Hi Debbie and Ashley.. Thanks for stopping by! Tempe has a ton of great projects like this in the works. The area is basically land-locked. Most of the building is going “up” instead of “out” like much of the Valley’s sprawl. Gonna be fun to be a part of!
