Developers MainSpring Capital Group and Palmer Development have completed the first phase of The Block in Scottsdale with and is 100% pre-leased. The retail space includes 14,000 square feet of shop space and three freestanding pads, which are pre-leased to national tenants including Texas Roadhouse and White Castle. The impressive leasing activity, particularly in a burdened retail market competing with ecommerce, highlights the retail demand in Phoenix and for quality projects.

“This is a great site, and that always helps,” Curtis Brown, one of the developers, tells GlobeSt.com. “At Mainspring Capital Group, we knew we had a great retail site at the front door to Pima Center, our 232-acre business park. We also knew we needed a retail amenity to not only serve the strong employee base within Pima Center and surrounding trade area, but also the 200,000 cars a day passing the site. What we didn’t know was the best way to design for and appeal to the current market trends and conditions.”
