...and they are currently building a new Circle K to replace their very outdated small one on the SWC of Mountain View/7th St. Exciting, I know!

That's actually the closest Circle K to me, I avoid it like the plague. Happy to see the old Shell being replaced but it's still going to be full of no good meth kids.

I try to use QT instead of Circle K. QT almost never has degenerates hanging out.

Code-Downtown Gateway District. Use Permit
required. 2) Use Permit to allow alcohol sales and
service within 300-feet of a church in an

Circle K seems to be going through a large capital improvement plan project at multiple locations. Every outdated Circle K I see around town is being remodeled and fenced up. They certain are competing against QT to provide a quality, safe, well designed gas station/convenience store. The nicer every hard corner/intersection in metro phoenix becomes the better

I suspect this is due to not only QT, but Maverik inching in closer and closer to the Phoenix Metro (one currently going up in Wickenburg). Circle K would be hard pressed if Maverik starts opening local locations. I am not even sure how 7-Eleven is staying competitive at this point by not upgrading their locations?

Great win for Chandler. Question: Did Phoenix even bother to bid? More jobs headed for the suburbs...

The City seems totally disinterested in attracting companies downtown.

They already are located in Chandler, why would they relocate?

Also, they want to build a "corporate campus" with a bunch of customer service representatives crammed in together. That's not a model that would fit downtown. The minimums given in this article ($35 million for 250,000 sqft) are wayyy underpriced for a high-rise anyways.

Allstate considered several other markets for the operations center, through a process that took almost two years, Tibshraeny said.

“They conducted a competitive process, and Chandler rose to the top,” he said, citing Chandler’s workforce and available office space as attractive factors for the city.

Allstate has discussed the idea of building the new corporate campus, worth at least $35 million, in Chandler. Tibshraeny said a location has yet to be determined and would be chosen later if Allstate decides to build in the city.
I'm not sure what any of the above means. Did they consider several other markets originally or for the upcoming campus? Also, the bolded in the last sentence makes it sound as though they aren't 100% positive they will build in the city. Regardless of whether or not they would have considered a high-rise, it is still a loss for the city of Phoenix in favor of more people working and living in the suburbs.

Some of us who chose to live in the burbs consider this a win. Less commute times, less C02 emissions than commuting to Downtown Phoenix or North Phoenix. Great for property values.
