Texas Roadhouse and Starbucks sign leases at The Block at Pima Center
July 25, 2018
Texas Roadhouse and Starbucks signed leases in June to open restaurants at The Block at Pima Center, located on the northwest corner of the Loop 101 and Via de Ventura on the Salt River Pima Maricopa Indian Community. The mixed-use development currently contains 1.5 million square feet of office, flex, medical and light industrial space – and that amount is expected to double in the next three years. Both Texas Roadhouse and Starbucks plan to open at The Block at Pima Center in early 2019.
“We are very excited about the traction our leasing efforts have gained,” said Curtis Brown, principal with Mainspring Capital Group, which is leading the development effort. “Landing such well-known brands as Texas Roadhouse, Starbucks and others is really great for building our momentum as we complete phase one and open up leasing for the second phase.”
An undisclosed restaurant brand has also reportedly signed a lease at The Block at Pima Center. Principals at Mainspring Capital Group would not name the restaurant, but said it’s the first Arizona outpost of an iconic brand. “The real testament to the site coming of age is the signing of our ‘mystery’ restaurant brand,” Brown said. “They could have selected any location in the Western U.S. for their expansion towards this end of the country and they chose The Block. That speaks volumes.”
The Corritore Company will handle leasing for phase two of The Block. “We are extremely excited about what will be the best freeway infill development opportunity along the 101 in Scottsdale. This trade area is underserved and in desperate need of retail, restaurants and services,” said John Corritore, president of The Corritore Company. “The area’s variety of entertainment is expanding, which will make this an even more appealing destination. We intend to attract the best restaurants and retailers to this highly visible project.”
