258-unit luxury townhouse/condo project planned

Maura J. Halpern

Jul. 14, 2006 12:00 AM


A Las Vegas-based real estate development company has announced plans to build a stylish townhome and condominium community near the Westgate City Center in Glendale.

Diversified Real Estate Group also has a resort-style condominium complex under construction in Surprise.

Called 9920, the luxury townhouse/condominium project at 99th Avenue and Camelback Road, will offer an urban lifestyle near the Valley's newest entertainment district.

The community will feature 22 mansion-style buildings, a three-story mid-rise and a feature-packed clubhouse.

"9920 will fit in very well with the feel of the area," said Jimmy Foster, president of Blue Tipping Group, the sales and marketing company for Diversified Real Estate Group. "This is where the 'in crowd' will live."

It will include more than 20,000 square feet of retail space below the residences. A coffee shop, dry cleaner and market are planned.

"We don't want residents to have to go too far for daily staples," Foster said.

Prices for the 261-unit community will range from $155,000 to $329,000.

While 9920 isn't scheduled to open until early 2008, those who register on an interest list will receive information about an exclusive presale in September.

"People will be able to get a little farther away from the congestion but still have access to the entertainment, shopping and sports," Foster said.

In Surprise, the Las Vegas-based developer has already brought Park Place Condominiums to life.

The resort-style condominium community is between Grand Avenue and Reems Road just north of Mountain View Boulevard.

Park Place will feature concierge services, guarded gate, fitness studios, a business center and other amenities.

"When we put together Park Place, we wanted to build a community that stood out from the others in Surprise," Foster said. "There's been a demand for this kind of lifestyle for a while."

The community has experienced brisk sales, with 52 of the 258 Tuscan-style residences remaining. Prices start at $200,000.

Aside from a handful of planned projects, Park Place is among the first resort-style condo communities in Surprise, Foster said.

"We got out there ahead of the curve," he said. "It's really exciting, given Surprise's future."

Construction on Park Place is about 85 percent completed and residents will start to move in by October.

Last year, Martha Gessel and her husband, Steve, were among the first to buy a condo at Park Place.

The couple sought to downsize from their three-bedroom home in Glendale's Arrowhead Ranch neighborhood, where they have lived for almost 20 years.

"I like the idea of simplifying my life," Martha Gessel said. "It's very freeing."

While the transition from their home to a one-bedroom condo will take some getting used to, the Gessels look forward to the low maintenance and plethora of amenities.

"It's almost like having a Scottsdale condo out here in the West Valley," Martha said. "In many ways, it will be like a vacation."

Thats good news about a school possibly coming to Goodyear, its a joke in a metro area of this size to have 1 university. It seems like what they are discussing is just an extension campus, but perhaps it can someday grow into a full fledged campus. I went to school in St Louis where they have at least 5 universities (mostly smaller schools) and I hope the Phoenix area can one day match that number.

^If they separated all of ASU's campuses into separate schools or if you count them that way we kind of do have a number of universities in Phoenix. I would like to see a good private university land ground in Phoenix...

On another note, Cabela's is opening, are you going?

Huge crowd expected for Cabela's opening
The Business Journal of Phoenix - 9:30 AM MST Tuesday

Cabela's is getting ready to open its 160,000-square-foot outdoor sporting goods store in Glendale Friday, and Glendale traffic crews are anticipating big crowds.

Cabela's visitors need to be aware of some minor construction projects surrounding the store, they caution. There are minor traffic restrictions on Glendale Avenue between 75th and 89th avenues and on Camelback Road between 73rd and 83rd avenues.

Parking will be available on Cabela's site, as well as the Westgate City Center lot directly north of Glendale Arena.

Lots are accessible from Camelback Road, Glendale Avenue and Northern Avenue exits off of Loop 101.

Motorists can follow traffic signs for directions and Glendale Police will be directing traffic to help establish a steady flow.

Visitors are encouraged to call the state traffic information line at 511 for updated information.

This is the first Cabela's to open in Arizona.

Well, there's Thunderbird the Garvin School of International Management in Glendale. There's also Midwestern University in Glendale. Arizona State University at the West Campus on the Glendale/Phoenix border practically operates as its own independent university. And there's also Grand Canyon University in west Phoenix. So, there are several universities here. ASU just happens to be the only public one, and is also the largest.

According to this article in the West Valley View, those condos will feature "Frank Lloyd Wright-inspired architecture."

Interesting.

Starting digging around on the City of Glendale site, but didn't find anything.
Here's a press release I found on it.

Glendale Waterfront?

Has anyone heard anything on the Glendale Waterfront project? The city was supposed to officially announce plans for it this summer, but thus far, nothing.

Here's a couple articles on it that have previously been posted:

- Glendale Waterfront in the Works

- Glendale to Announce Waterfront Plans

The Summit at Avondale

Avondale getting gateway it’s always envisioned

Darryl Henning
assistant managing editor

Avondale Boulevard south of Interstate 10 is giving promise of becoming the gateway to Avondale that city officials envisioned when they approved moving the municipal civic center complex to that roadway.
Already under construction on the southeast corner of I-10 and Avondale Boulevard are two Hilton brand hotels — a 124-room Garden Inn and a 122-room Homewood Suites. They’re expected to open in late fall this year or early 2007.

Across the street, on the west side of Avondale Boulevard south of I-10, Avalon Commercial Corp. plans to develop The Summit at Avondale, featuring a four- to five-star, 16-story, 250-room resort hotel complete with a water theme park, spa, gourmet restaurant and 10,000 square feet of high-end retail; 180,000 square feet of office space in two buildings; 20,000-square-foot upscale retail center; and a 115-room Cambria Suites hotel.

And just south of The Summit, Byrd Enterprises hopes to break ground this summer on the first phase of the CityPointe project — two six-story hotels, three office buildings and a number of sit-down restaurants.

“Is Avondale Boulevard becoming a gateway? Absolutely,” Avondale Economic Development Director Jeff Fairman said.

“As you come off the freeway and into the more commercial area, there will be two real entrance monuments,” Fairman continued, identifying the two Hilton hotels going up and The Summit development. “Hotels, offices, shops and restaurants.”

Plans for the CityPointe project are with the Planning Department now, he said.

“It has the promise of being a very quality development,” Fairman said, adding that all of the projects, when completed, will give Avondale “a sense of place.”

There are other projects in the works for which paperwork hasn’t been submitted to the city yet, Fairman said.

“Sean O’Brien, owner of the very popular Carlos O’Brien’s restaurant chain, has plans for a signature restaurant and other sit-down restaurants, offices and shops on his property,” he said, which is on the east side of Avondale Boulevard south of where the Hilton hotels are going up.

South of there, next to the Avondale Civic Center on Avondale Boulevard south of Van Buren Street, is the Avondale Corporate Center, a 30,000-square-foot office building in which Phoenix International Raceway has its corporate office.

“Plans for the second of three buildings are with the Planning & Zoning for review,” Fairman said.

‘On the right track’
While the Avondale City Council hasn’t said anything directly to city staff about its satisfaction with the way economic development is going in the city, from what it has said, “I believe we’re on the right track,” Fairman said. “Every conversation we do have shows the council is very supportive of what we’re doing.”

Fairman also is leading the charge for the city’s updating of its economic development plan, which will be brought to the City Council for adoption later this month. Avondale residents have been encouraged to participate in the process, including providing Fairman with input on a five-year plan of action.

That plan will focus on business investment and retention efforts to enhance jobs/housing balance, promote fiscal health and provide a high-quality business environment. Seven areas will be emphasized:


Economic development

Workforce and education

Transportation

Sites and buildings

Utilities and infrastructure

Quality of life

Community image
“The Economic Development Plan creates the foundation upon which other specific plans can be based — including a specific plan for Avondale Boulevard and Old Town Avondale,” Mayor Marie Lopez Rogers said. “These are two very different areas of the community, but both play a very important role in Avondale’s future. The Economic Development Plan also serves as a roadmap in the development of new employment, tourism and shopping amenities necessary for a sustainable, vibrant community.”

While his Economic Development Department may be in the spotlight these days, Fairman shares the credit.

“Every day that goes by, I see that it’s about the team we have right now — from the council, to our department, to the planning department,” he said.

Goodyear City Center

Goodyear City Center clears TAC
Committee concerned with pedestrian areas, building height

Sara Bisker
staff writer

An EKG of the Goodyear City Center plan would show a flat line caused by more than a year of inactivity. But a small — and nonetheless present — heartbeat was heard July 6 as plans pushed forward.

The city’s Technical Advisory Committee reviewed and approved the final draft of the area master plan that has been a work in progress since 1988.

“Doggone it. I’ve got three years left in this office and I don’t know how long God’s going to let me live — I want to see a building built,” said Georgia Lord, councilwoman and committee chairwoman.

Goodyear held a public meeting in December 2004 for residents to give feedback on three proposed designs for the center. Each concept held the same basic format except for the road patterns.

The City Center will be built two miles south of Interstate 10 on 200 acres surrounding Estrella Parkway and Yuma Road.

Goodyear Boulevard, an inner road, will serve as a pedestrian-friendly, two-lane Main Street loop intersected by Yuma Road and Estrella Parkway. The boulevard also will circle around the outside of the Main Street loop to attract higher amounts of traffic.

The land is owned by three entities: Goodyear has 40 acres, SunMP owns 140 acres and the Wood family owns 20 acres.

Each quadrant is characterized by a design theme, said Leslie Dornfeld, consultant for HDR, a Nebraska-based architecture and engineering firm.

The northwest quadrant will house civic, retail, restaurant and community space under the theme “sun and shade,” Dornfeld said. It is envisioned as the “heart of the City Center.”

A library will be built within that sector along with other cultural uses such as a performing arts theater, she said. The city administrative buildings will locate there as well.

Hotels, entertainment and offices will create the makeup of the northeast district. The U.S. Post Office already exists in that area. Design will be consistent with a “wind and breeze” theme.

The southeast district will function as a business park because of its proximity to Phoenix Goodyear Airport and Goodyear Boulevard Southeast. It will be used to preserve views of the Estrella Mountains and will depict a “rock and vegetation” sequence.

The final quadrant in the southeast corner of the City Center will be primarily residential and showcase a “water” theme.

A ‘compromised’ City Center
Several concessions and compromises have been made on the 16-year living document, Lord said.

In spring 2005, she said, “This is very much a citizen-driven project. We want to make sure that every last thing that goes into that City Center is something the public wants.”

But even those on the technical advisory committee were unaware of some of the decisions made for the final plan.

A change in the plan that threw committee members off course was the allowance of 150-foot buildings within the Main Street loop, said Kristie Birdsell, committee member. The previous consensus was that buildings would be no more than five stories tall. A seven-story high building is roughly 150 feet tall.

“I remember distinctly at the [public meeting] it was a huge thing about the building height, and we were completely ignored,” she said. “I don’t think the community has been involved in some things that I’ve seen here. I don’t feel, as a committee member, I’ve had partaken in a lot of these decisions and the things being presented to us.”

After a building clears three stories high, it will be scaled back in a pyramid formation, thereby creating the illusion of a shorter building, City Manager Stephen Cleveland said. The road, sidewalk and landscape clearance in front of the buildings will help to make them appear smaller, he added.

Going up was the only way the City Center would be able to contend with its growing population, Lord noted.

“Let me explain something to you. You all wondered why this thing has taken so long,” she said. “We had a scope of work. During all of those meetings, that scope of work became bigger and bigger and bigger, which meant more time for the consultant, which added more money to the city to give to the consultant to do that work. That is partially the reason it took so long.

“On the height, I was just as surprised as you when it evolved. It was a process that took place between the consultants, landowners and the staff. We are going to be a city of 400,000, and this is our City Center and we only have that patch of property. The only way you can meet those requirements is you have to go up.”

Pedestrian safety issue
Another point of contention for committee members was availability of safe areas for pedestrians traveling between the quadrants at the Estrella Parkway-Yuma Road intersection.

Although speeds will be lowered in the area and diagonal parking put in place to slow traffic, committee members voiced concern that visitors would rather drive than walk to neighboring quadrants.

A pedestrian-activated signal is planned for the area, Dornfeld said, but a “scramble” or “hot button” also could be installed in the future.

“At this point we should only be hoping to have a bunch of people backed up at that intersection,” Dornfeld said. “We looked at putting bridge crossings in here as well and frankly, it’s just cost prohibitive.”

If pedestrian volume is heavy enough, other crossing solutions could be considered, she added.

Pedestrian volume and building height are issues that will evolve with the City Center as it grows, Cleveland said. The issue at hand is to move the planning forward.

“The City Council desires to move forward with this under the pain of public scrutiny of, ‘When are we ever going to build something?’ A piece of that is, we need a guidance document,” he said. “It’s like everything else. We’re flying an airplane and we change the engines along the way. We’re going to go from the Wright brothers to supersonic in quick order but we have to change those engines while we fly. We’re waiting with bated breath for an opportunity.”

The final draft was approved and will be reviewed by the Goodyear Planning and Zoning Commission on July 19. The public meeting is at 7 p.m. at the Goodyear Justice Facility, 986 S. Litchfield Road in Goodyear.

Update on Westgate

A development of a different color
1st phase of Westgate center well on its way to completion


Frank Morris

staff writer

Look to the east while driving along Loop 101 and you'll see it: Westgate City Center, the 6.5 million-square-foot entertainment complex being developed by the Ellman Cos.

The first phase, which will consist of more than 500,000 square feet of retail, restaurant and loft office spaces, is nearing completion. More than 75 percent complete, Phase I is expected to open to the public in October.

The Ellman Cos. anticipate the project, at 95th and Glendale avenues, will attract nearly 22 million visitors annually - a number greater than the entire population of Mexico City's metropolitan area.

After facing a few years of delays, "we're moving quickly," said Jeffrey Hecht, director of public affairs for the Ellman Cos.

Phase I is about 70 percent leased out, and construction workers are on the site "from the first sunlight until about 2 p.m." each day, Hecht said.

The Ellman Cos. hope to have as much of Phase I leased out and completed this fall to cater to the thousands of football fans heading to Cardinals Stadium, Hecht said.

"The goal and the desire of the city was to create a full-service sports, family and entertainment area," Glendale spokeswoman Julie Frisoni said. "The development around the area is extremely important because it adds all those extra amenities where people want to live, work and play."

Adding new tenants

While construction carries on, Ellman Cos. continues to attract new tenants to the site.

On July 19, the developer announced that Garduno's Margarita Factory and Gordon Biersch Brewery Restaurant will set up shop at Westgate. It will mark the third Valley location for Garduno's, which has restaurants in Scottsdale and Chandler. The restaurant serves more than 350 kinds of margaritas.

"We feel [Westgate] is a unique combination of restaurant, retail and play area," said John Johnston, co-owner of the Arizona Garduno's. "We wanted to reach out and service our customers in the West Valley. We have a great deal of customers from there who come to our other locations."

The Gordon Biersch eatery will be the first structure to be constructed by the Ellman Cos. outside of Phase I, and be only the second Gordon Biersch location in the Phoenix area - the other is in Tempe.

Both Garduno's and Gordon Biersch will be built on pad sites next to Westgate's first phase.

More tenants will be announced in the coming weeks, Hecht said.

Something for everyone

When food lovers, shop-a-holics, sports fans and movie buffs head to Westgate this fall, they can expect their needs to be fulfilled, Hecht said.

"I don't think there's anybody from 2 to 82 that isn't going to find something at Westgate," he said.

A 4,000-seat, 20-screen AMC Theater will anchor the north end of Phase I. At 80,000 square feet, it's projected to be the largest movie theater in the state.

The AMC Theater will feature traditional stadium-style seating in addition to rooms filled with directors' chairs that can be reserved for private screenings, Hecht said.

The theater initially was slated to be a Loews Cineplex until AMC Entertainment Inc. merged with Loews Cineplex Entertainment Corp. in January.

In addition to movies, Westgate guests will have a plethora of eateries from which to choose.

Yard House, Tahitian Noni Cafe, Johnny Rockets, Coffee Plantation and Cold Stone Creamery will open in Phase I, along with three restaurants from Raving Brands Inc.: Moe's Southwest Grill, Mama Fu's Asian House and Doc Green's Gourmet Salads.

The only retail stores officially announced for the first phase of Westgate are Coronado Tobacco Co. and Qwest Solutions Center. The Ellman Cos. is working with other retail tenants right now, but the developer's policy is to wait until paperwork is finalized before naming them, Hecht said.

Phase II, which won't begin construction until the first part of next year, already has at least one retail tenant lined up: Barnes & Noble, which will be housed in a 20,000-square-foot single-tenant building.

'No beige here'

Westgate guests might question whether they're in Arizona, Hecht said. "We wanted something different."

Visitors will find themselves engulfed in vibrant hues of yellow, blue, orange and green.

"There's no beige here," Hecht said, calling the project's design and color scheme "Arizona deco."

"It's where Arizona meets South Beach," he said.

Additionally, Phase I will feature some 30 billboards, many of which will be electronic or animated and will reach dimensions as high as 100 feet or as wide as 80 feet.

"This is Times Square," Hecht said of Westgate's events plaza, where 20 of the 30 media signs will be displayed.

There also will be a 350-foot-long Bellagio-like fountain in the events plaza, which will host water shows set to music.

A two-minute walk to the north will allow visitors to take a rest at the project's fountain park.

Westgate City Center also has a number of other projects popping up.

The Quarter at Westgate's and Alexan Westgate's 422 townhouse and apartment units being developed by Trammel Crow Residential will provide a place for people to live as early as February of next year.

"What makes us so unique is the location - the lifestyle that it provides - and the product that we're delivering," said Theresa Perkovich, sales director at The Quarter. "Our floor plans are open, functional, and urban in design." A 12-story, 320-room Renaissance Hotel, being developed by John Q. Hammons Hotel Inc., also is making progress. Steel beams for the first few floors of the luxury hotel and convention center already have been erected.

The Renaissance Hotel is expected to be ready to accommodate visitors by August or September 2007, Frisoni said. It will be a much-needed amenity to the area, as Glendale will host the Super Bowl in 2008.

"Three and a half years ago this was a cotton field, and a year and a half from now, they're going to play the Super Bowl," Hecht said.

Very cool...I'm excited about that place opening up but I hope it won't turn into another AMC 30 or Desert Ridge where middle school kids clog up the place.

Definately looking forward to the AMC 30 which from other articles I've read, will have reserved seating as well as VIP seating and a cafe inside the theatre...something a little bit more upscale.

I think the Westgate location would be a great spot for another Sapporo Teppan Yaki...seems like it would it in well, but it might not be to the standards of the restaurant since their Scottsdale one seems very upscale.

Same with retail...a Barnes and Noble is at every single one of these developments as are all the other American Eagle and Hollister stores.

It's kind of a shame...there isn't a real big reason for someone that doesn't live somewhat close to travel when they can go to the one nearest to their house...since they have the same stores and restaurants.

Rather un-unique but at least theres going to be plenty of development. I guess they will appeal to the common visitor that goes to that area...

True. Sorta like how a lot of the tenants at the Biltmore and Esplanade are rather un-unique, but appeal to the common visitor that goes to that area, as well.

This seems like good news for the future job base in the West Valley.
