An inspired urban lifestyle experience – Gallery Park – has finally arrived in the Southeast Valley. Dine, shop, work and reside at this morning-to-night destination while strolling through ever-evolving art installations. The new mixed-use destination developed by VIVO Partners and located on 40 acres southeast of the 202 Freeway and Power Road is set to begin construction in Spring 2019.
Gallery Park will include approximately 400,000 square feet of Class A office, two hotels, 420 luxury apartment units and condos situated above restaurant/retail space and a movie theater, or other entertainment uses. At full build-out, it is expected to be home to more than 3,000 employees and residents.
“I have friends, family and two business partners who all live in the Southeast Valley and are tired of driving 30 to 60 minutes to find culinary-inspired places to eat next to great, energetic gathering spaces.” said Jose Pombo, Development Partner at VIVO Partners. “Gallery Park will be a first-of-its-kind social destination that weaves art within a curated mix of tenants to create a genuinely cool vibe that Southeast Valley residents have been craving.”
Gallery Park’s Art Program makes this mixed-use development unlike any in the Valley. The development team’s vision is to expose residents to the arts by showcasing an eclectic art-walk experience which includes wall murals, exterior fixed and interactive art installations, and revolving art displays featuring emerging local artists creating their new pieces live, on site. Gallery Park will also require each office building, and encourage the hotels, to display art within their entry lobbies. Restaurants will also be strongly encouraged to participate by displaying artwork compatible with their unique identities.
“Location is key when selecting a site for projects, and Mesa’s Gateway Area is ideal for Gallery Park,” Mayor John Giles said. “Southeast Mesa is still growing fast and bringing an entire, 40-acre, community with jobs, homes, entertainment and art that focuses on placemaking is a great fit.”
With easy-access and visibility from Loop 202, Gallery Park is within a five-mile radius of more than 223,000 consumers with a household income of more than $101,000. Within a 10-mile radius are more than 920,000 people. The development is minutes from the Phoenix-Mesa Gateway Airport and Arizona State University’s Polytechnic Campus.
“This is a major addition to the Gateway Area and will not only bring office space and luxury housing, but also entertainment, restaurants, and shopping options to the region for all to enjoy,” District 6 Councilmember Kevin Thompson said. “Gallery Park continues the upward trend of District 6 being a destination location, which is great for our citizens and regional partners.”
