Developers will finally break ground in Downtown Phoenix on the much anticipated Block 23 mixed-use development, which will house the area’s first grocery store.

RED Development will break ground on Block 23, which is located at First and Washington Streets, on April 13. The project includes a Fry’s Food Stores, 200,000 square feet of creative office space, 330 apartment units and retail space.

The mixed-use development is located near CityScape and Talking Stick Arena. RED Development plans to complete Block 23 in 2019.

StreetLights Residential will work on the 330 apartments at the project.

This will be the first grocery store in the area.

RED Development says the Fry’s Food Store will be one of the most technologically advanced grocery stores in Arizona.

There will be above and below-grade parking on site at Block 23. RED Development says this Block 23 marks CityScape’s expansion to Second Street.
