Sharp, modish curb appeal is underway at Overstreet, Downtown Chandler’s imminent shopping, dining and entertainment destination expected to open in December 2017, injecting an invigorating new lineup of restaurants, retailers and entertainment options plus an influx of new jobs to the area.
“With a signed agreement in place, we’re now ready to move forward with LGE Design Build to make this downtown project a reality,” said Chandler Mayor Jay Tibshraeny. “This busy intersection is critical to enhancing our existing vibrant downtown. We’ve had plenty of new additions to the downtown this past year, and now we’re thrilled to get another first for our state, Flix Brewhouse, as the anchor for this highly desired entertainment project.”
Developed by MDB Properties and driven by Arizona-based LGE Design Build, with design by Brick & West, architecture by Cawley Architects and design-build by LGE, the new, 77,000 square-foot multi-use project will be located along the southwest corner of Arizona Ave. and Chandler Blvd. and will feature an array of a.m. to p.m. options for fitness, commerce, work and play. Anchoring the project is Flix Brewhouse, a first-of-its-kind addition to the Valley that combines feature films and an award-winning in-house microbrewery. Additional tenant space will host a range of varied businesses, from big-name eateries and fitness centers to business start-ups and new-to-the-Valley retailers.
“This is the sixth Flix Brewhouse to open nationwide, and we picked downtown Chandler because it’s poised for unprecedented growth,” said Flix Brewhouse’s Matt Silvers.
Stylish and modern, Flix Brewhouse offers state-of-the-art visuals and sounds, a wide range of local and regional craft beer, in addition to up to 12 of its own, brewed on-premises brews. Flix Brewhouse is a full-service, dine-in cinema offering elevated American pub fare, an abundance of non-alcoholic refreshment options, too, and a full onsite bar which serves patrons during regular theater business hours, no movie ticket required. Innovative and modern, both family friendly and great for date night, Flix sets the tone for the rest of the expansive Overstreet project, which is fresh, urban and indicative of the overall direction of the city of Chandler.
A Bold New Entry to Downtown Chandler
Extroverted and striking, Overstreet is set to draw considerable attention from the roadway thanks to stylistic exterior elements including lush landscaping, artistic signage and its namesake, a large-scale bridge that rises above the destination’s entrance and will house office space for leading-edge companies. Walkable, bike-able pathways will traverse through the properties colorful alleyways, increasing its accessibility for auto, foot, stroller and two-wheel traffic.

Next-Gen Consumers, And Current
Offering a blend of young families, busy millennials and teens, among other desired demographics, Overstreet is expected to draw interest not only from residents of Chandler and nearby Ocotillo Village, but also from across the Valley.
And with close proximity to major thoroughfares and an abundance of neighborhoods within minutes from its address, Overstreet’s appeal transcends all types of businesses. Those looking to launch restaurants, retail stores or new offices within the tech, startup or other sectors, among others at the East Valley’s most notable new address are encouraged to contact LGE Design Build’s Danny Plapp to inquire about leasing opportunities.
“It’s a round-the-clock hangout for people,” said David Sellers, president and CEO of LGE Design Build. “Our teams have thoughtfully shaped an indoor-outdoor life experience while positioning Chandler for the future of dining, entertainment and retail.”
The first phase of Overstreet’s construction is expected to be completed sometime in December 2017.
