Agreed. I dig the photos CB1 but we do need captions to clear up confusion.

The first two pictures is the office building and parking garage at IDEA first phase.

On another note, can anyone confirm if the Skyview building permit has indeed been issued? It says so on the development tracker but with no movement on site or news about it, I don't want to get my hopes up on this high rise.

State Farm is looking to hire 1,100 people at its Tempe operations this year.

To fill those positions, the Bloomington, Illinois-based insurance giant is hosting its first-ever virtual career fair July 11.

Those jobs are among thousands of openings throughout multiple locations with the company across the country, said Brodie Hurtado, public affairs specialist for State Farm in Tempe.

The positions needed at the Tempe office are in claims, sales and customer service, enterprise technology, underwriting, bank and others, Hurtado said.

Salaries start at $15.50 an hour. All jobs — full- or part-time — come with benefits, including health insurance, tuition reimbursement, 401(k) and pension.

The virtual career fair is set for 5 a.m. to 6 p.m. local time.

State Farm employs about 7,400 people in Arizona, with around 7,200 working at its 2 million-square-foot Tempe operations. Last year the company hired about 1,800 in Arizona.

State Farm announced in 2013 its plans to open a regional headquarters in Tempe. The project, called Marina Heights, is along Tempe Town Lake. Ryan Cos. and Scottsdale-based Sunbelt Holdings Inc. developed the project, estimated at $600 million.

State Farm leases the space as anchor tenant for the project that sits on 20 acres.

Two years ago, the Marina Heights development sold for $928 million, or $457 per square foot — a record price at the time.

In September 2018, The Arizona Cardinals awarded naming rights to State Farm for its football stadium in Glendale. The 18-year agreement for State Farm Stadium naming rights was estimated between $250 million and $400 million at the time the deal was announced.




This is GREAT news for tempe from a jobs perspective. Over 1000 jobs being added to the area only increases the need for more housing projects to be develop. Most of the jobs are lower paying but some I assume to be high enough to afford new construction rents.

Great Development Article for Tempe

https://azbigmedia.com/real-estate/c...-urban-center/

Check this out for updates on many East Valley/Tempe projects.

Edit: some of the info in the article is inaccurate for example: "Westin tempe almost complete, delivery in August 2019" When it hasn't even started rising out of the ground.

I see the above also mentions Whole Foods opening in Oct. Which sounds about right.

I think it's a mistake. According to this page a building permit was issued back in December for "hardscape & ADA walkways for temporary park." I suspect that's what's causing it to show as a building permit issued. There's been no movement on the site; no news; it's never showed as in review for a building permit; and Golub's site hasn't been updated in years--it still shows this project as having a projected completion date of 2018. I don't think they're ready to build.

Looks like they're doing some TI work on one of the vacant suites at University House on the side facing 5th St. Not sure if anyone knows what's going in? Hard to tell if it includes the hard corner space too.

Large boom crane and construction equipment on site where the novus apartment is supposed to go. Looked like they were moving materials to that area. Not sure if they are just staging equipment or if that building permit just got issued and its gonna start moving? Also heavy machinery was moving dirt where the food hall was supposed to go. Tons of Novus activity!

I walked by yesterday. It does not include the hard corner, but the stall to the east of it is definitely being built out. Wasn't able to tell what's going in, but hopefully we'll find out soon.

EDIT: Tempe building permit records indicate it's an office build out for "Sazan Group," apparently an engineering firm: http://sazan.com/about. Seems like a good use of the space, especially with as much trouble as 5th St./Veterans has had with retail.

The new signs have the same construction contractor (BDC) as the current construction contractor of "Collective". Since the two sites are adjacent and one wall of the underground part (almost) rests against "Collective" the same construction contractor (BDC) will make it easier to co-ordinate.

Heavy machinery on site of the ITSB-7 building. This going vertical along with novus will start to create a "tunnel" like effect of buildings rising along university.

Speaking of tunnels, I heard a rumor that they are going to tunnel a road under the light rail tracks on University Dr. that run between McAllister ave and Rural because of the traffic back up that occurs with the intersection and tracks.

Again, this is just something I randomly heard but, does anyone have any information on this?

I highly doubt that will happen. There are so many underground utilities below the tracks right there the tunnel would have to be so deep. I can't imagine it's feasible (especially considering the costs).

Only thing I know of being constructed right there would be the pedestrian bridge over the light rail tracks/university. Maybe that's what the person meant?

So it looks like a hotel is being proposed for the last open parcel on the City owned land at 5th and Farmer (SE Corner along the tracks). Disappointed that it's only going to be a 5 story hotel with no retail...but it will be about the same height as those apartment blocks to the south...at least with this and the office buildings proposed on the northern end and the apartments expected to start on the southern end of Farmer, hopefully it starts taking shape into a new interesting urban street.
