The highly anticipated first phase of the Watermark will open in September 2019 including 265,000 square feet of premium Class A office and 44,000 square feet of high-end restaurant and retail space centered around a splash pad, which will connect to the boardwalk and Tempe Town Lake. It will also include 360 luxury apartment units.

I've eaten at Obon in Tucson. Pretty good ramen and cocktails. It'll be nice to have them in Tempe.
Barrio Queen was originally supposed to be in there too, but on the developments list they are going into Tempe Marketplace, so I guess they decided on a different location

Wow. Barrio Queen seems so unlike Tempe Marketplace, which I usually consider the domain of chains. What an interesting development.

They are in Desert Ridge Marketplace, which is pretty much a carbon copy of Tempe Marketplace

Is their a rendering

Of ASU's latest research lab that broke ground today at the southwest corner of University and Rural? Is there a main campus ASU thread that I missed?

Took a hike between classes in and around Mill, maaaaan, this area is buzzing with activity!!

Some quick updates:

Varsity Tavern looks to be nearing completion above the new Rodeo Bar at SE 5th and Mill

Illegal Pete’s underway in former Big Fat Greek space

Board game cafe opening Friday in former Z’Tejas building called Snakes and Lattes. It’s the Canadian company’s first branch outside of Canada

Activity in the former World of Beer/Funky Monk space. Idk what.

Construction underway in the white building at 5th and Maple

I don't believe any renderings have surfaced yet. The building is ISTB 7. There was a conceptual rendering by Studio Ma that surfaced last year, and a placeholder rendering from a flyer that was posted a few pages back. Neither of those are the actual design. Architekton was awarded the RFP to design the building in January of this year. Not sure why no renderings have surfaced, but I haven't seen any. And there is no separate ASU thread--discussion has mainly happened here in the Tempe thread.

To go off that point, I was looking through an investment OM today and I noticed that these brokers were showcasing some of the new NOVUS corridor site plans and designs. The ITSB-7 building included in the image below, looks like it will have a bridge over the light rail instead of the ITSB-7 having it run through it. To allow for pedestrian access over university from ASU campus to the new corridor.

Not sure if this is the new design, but NOVUS is marketing a bridge from the new sustainability building to the corridor, so they may have collaborated for an updated site/elevation plan.

Also: to my earlier point a few posts ago, the NWC of Rio/Rural is proposed Office/Hotel, in this rendering looks pretty dense/tall for the lakefront.

The Novus area dual brand Hyatt hotel has finally made it on the development tracker for the City of Tempe. I would guess the Westin hotel project is dead at this point. CAI Investments was trying to raise almost $26m in funding on expected project costs of $78m a few years back. If they got the funding, they surely would have broken ground by now.

The site plan for ISTB-7 matches the last working model I saw for the project. They bagged building over the light rail in their recent designs (probably air right issues since the city owns the LR stop).

Yeah we'll see on the Westin but it doesn't look great. Strange that they had that under reported ground breaking and then... Nothing.
