75,000 square feet of restaurant and retail space is now available for lease at OdySea in the Desert in Scottsdale, Arizona. OdySea in the Desert is a 35-acre, multi-million-dollar entertainment complex located at the 101 Freeway and Via de Ventura.  The landmark development is already home to Butterfly Wonderland, OdySea Mirror Maze and minutes from Talking Stick Resort, Salt River Fields and Top Golf.  Currently under construction and scheduled to open in July 2016, The Shops at OdySea in the Desert is a unique and rare opportunity for a tenant to join this multi-attraction project anchored by OdySea Aquarium.

OdySea Aquarium, An Oceanic Adventure, will be the largest aquarium in the Southwest.  The 200,000 square foot aquarium will be home to some of the most fascinating creatures that live in the sea, and will be presented in a totally unique format that combines education, entertainment, and hands-on encounters that will surely create the most memorable experiences for visitors of all ages.  Every year several million people are projected to visit the aquarium and its neighboring attractions and take part in an interactive shopping experience like no other at The Shops at OdySea in the Desert.

“This is a once in a generation-type of leasing opportunity for a retailer or restaurateur.  Typically in this market if a retailer or restaurant misses a leasing opportunity in a traditional shopping plaza, there will always be another one around corner.  However, if a prospective tenant misses this exclusive opportunity then it could be decades before a project of this magnitude or impact emerges.” says Ari Spiro, President of ORION Investment Real Estate.

The Shops at OdySea in the Desert will offer approximately 75,000 square feet of retail shops and restaurant space, visible from a 360 degree panoramic view from inside a landscaped courtyard with multiple water features.  Suites ranging from 1,000 to 6,500 square feet will host innovative concepts from some of the world’s top restaurateurs and retail brands.  The first floor will cater to retailers offering fun, hands-on interactive shopping while the main level will house an array of unique, high-energy restaurants for visitors seeking an extraordinary culinary experience.
