MainSpring Capital, developer of the 232-acre mixed-use Pima Center, announced plans for its new retail development, The Block at Pima Center.

The Pima Center recently announced plans for a $30 million senior living facility and a 150,000-square-foot light industrial facility.

Located on the Northwest Corner of the Loop 101 and Via de Ventura on the Salt River Pima Maricopa Indian Community, Pima Center is one of North Scottsdale’s largest mixed-use business parks with 1.4 million square feet already developed. The Block at Pima Center will occupy approximately 12 acres with freeway frontage along the 101 and with full diamond access at Via de Ventura.

“The demographics for this retail project could not be better,” says Curtis Brown, principal with MainSpring Capital Group. “We currently have 3,800 existing employees on-site at Pima Center, as well as thousands of additional employees and residents in the nearby area. Our visibility along Loop 101 and access to two different interchanges of the freeway make this a great location for retailers and restaurants.”

The Block at Pima Center will contain upwards of 60,000 square feet of restaurant and service retail space. The property contains six pad sites for stand-alone users. A large freeway pylon and monument sign will be erected along Loop 101 to provide additional visibility for The Block’s tenants.

Stan Sanchez, Larry Miller and John “JK” Jackson of Colliers International in Greater Phoenix are exclusive leasing/sales agents for The Block at Pima Center.

“Since introducing the project to the commercial real estate market this month, we have received exciting response from interested tenants,” says Sanchez. “This development provides a unique opportunity to access one of the Valley’s most desirable retail customer markets in an exciting new development. This will be the first sizable retail development project in Scottsdale since the creation of The Scottsdale Quarter.”

Located in the heart of the Talking Stick entertainment corridor, Pima Center is surrounded by Salt River Fields baseball stadium, the Butterfly Pavilion, TopGolf, Talking Stick Resort and the recently opened Odysea Aquarium in the Desert.

Architectural design of the retail center is being provided by Butler Design of Phoenix. Plans call for construction of The Block’s first structure as early as first quarter 2017 with opening in early 2018.
