Vestar entrusted Foursite to manage the design and construction of Tempe Marketplace which has over 1.3 M square feet, and 120 retailers, restaurants and entertainment venues.
This unique project was constructed on what was formerly a Brownfield site. A portion of the shopping center was built on a non-organic landfill, where the ground was compacted by means of deep dynamic compaction. The remaining portion consisted of organic landfill which was removed in its entirety.
In addition, this project required an intense degree of coordina-tion with the various tenants as we managed the negotiation and purchase of land from 200 individual owners.
National retailers include Barnes & Noble, GAP, Best Buy, Old Navy, G by Guess, and Target. Also included are a number of up-scale, casual-theme restaurants: California Pizza Kitchen, Lucille's Smokehouse Bar-B-Que, Kabuki Japanese Restaurant and The Keg Steakhouse & Bar. Entertainment venues include Dave & Buster's, Harkins Theatres, and Maria Maria Restaurant.
