Phoenix, Ariz. – Colliers International has been selected by RED Development to exclusively handle the office leasing for its eagerly anticipated Block 23 at CityScape project in downtown Phoenix. The true mixed-use development will include 332 apartments, downtown Phoenix’s first, full-service grocery store and 230,000 square feet of Class A office space, as well as additional restaurants and retail shops.
Situated at First and Washington streets in Downtown Phoenix, Block 23 at CityScape is the area’s first major mixed-use project developed in years. Slated for completion later this year, the property includes a 13-floor apartment tower developed by StreetLights Residential that includes 332 units. The project also includes 230,000 square feet of Class A office space, which has already attracted WeWork and Ernst and Young as its first tenants. Retail components of the development feature a 67,000-square-foot Fry’s Food Store and 50,000 square feet of additional retail space for shop and restaurant use, 12,000 square feet of which have already been leased to Blanco Tacos & Tequila, a Fox Restaurant concept. Block 23 at CityScape includes an on-site parking structure with three levels of below-grade parking for residents and four above-grade levels of parking for office tenants and visitors.
“We are thrilled to be part of this dynamic landmark project,” says Ryan Timpani, executive vice president at Colliers International. “Downtown Phoenix has become a 24/7 destination for corporate office users and residents alike and this unique live-work-play development brings a sophisticated and modern environment to our evolving city. Anchored by the first true grocery offering that downtown Phoenix has ever seen, Block 23 at CityScape has been enthusiastically anticipated by the market. We look forward to welcoming additional office tenants that will benefit from the extensive on-site amenities.”
Timpani and Todd Noel of Colliers International will serve as exclusive leasing agents for the commercial office space at Block 23 at CityScape.
