PHOENIX (Oct. 26, 2023) – Thompson Thrift, a full-service nationally recognized real estate company, announced today the commencement of construction on the retail component of a 21-acre mixed-use parcel located at the intersection of Interstate 10 and Loop 101 in Phoenix. An approximately 23,000-square-foot Sprouts Farmers Market is set to anchor the mixed-use development, along with a Class A multifamily community to be developed later. The first retail tenants are expected to open in late 2024.

“This property rests on the last undeveloped corner of a major regional intersection,” said Ashlee Boyd, managing partner for Thompson Thrift Commercial. “We believe this will be a standout center and a lasting asset for the community.”

Located at the northeast corner of 99th Avenue and McDowell Road at the front door of Phoenix’s West Valley, Thompson Thrift has already secured leases with Shake Shack; Hawaiian Bros. Island Grill; Mountain Mike’s Pizza; Cava, a Mediterranean-inspired, fast-casual restaurant; Nekter Juice Bar, a cold-pressed juice and smoothie concept; and Torchy’s Tacos, a Tex-Mex taco restaurant. Valvoline; V’s Barbershop, a nostalgic barbershop with a modern twist; LaserAway, a laser hair removal chain, a nail salon and a medical spa will also fill the space.

Currently, only one inline shop space and two pads remain available.

The site is directly across from Gateway Pavilions, a power center that is home to a variety of national retailers including Costco, Ulta Beauty, Marshall’s and Harkins Theatres. It also is minutes north of the Southwest Valley Industrial Corridor and less than five miles south of the Glendale Sports and Entertainment District, which includes State Farm Stadium (home to the NFL’s Arizona Cardinals), Gila River Arena, Top Golf and a host of retail and dining options.

“Our long-standing history developing commercial centers in Arizona was instrumental in securing the approvals and commitments necessary to move this project forward,” said Chris Hake, senior vice president, director of the Southwest region for Thompson Thrift. “We are very pleased to bring this exciting new project to the West Valley.”

Phoenix is the fifth largest city in the nation and the West Valley is one of the country’s fastest growing regions. According to WESTMRC data, more than 1.7 million people currently call the West Valley home, and its population is expected to grow at twice the national rate over the next five years.
