Locally based Westcor Shopping Centers has startedconstruction on the Chandler Fashion Center, a 1.3-million-sf super-regional mall in Chandler, one of Phoenix’s fastest-growing residential suburbs. At the intersection of Chandler Boulevard and Price Road, the enclosed mall will have four anchor stores and 150 specialty shops.

The center will also have a large outdoor “streetscape village,” lined with boutiques, service-oriented retailers, restaurants and a 100,000-sf multi-screen movieTheater. Phoenix-based Kitchell Contractors is thegeneral contractor.

The shopping mall is part of a 320-acre urban villageplan that includes office parks, a hotel, conferencecenter, residential area and three other retaildevelopments. Construction on the mall is expected to be completedby October 2001.
