DMB Associates is asking the public to create the name for a 3,200-acre expanse of land where it’s expecting to build a master-planned community. The area was once the General Motors Proving Grounds but the Scottsdale-based developer is seeking a new name that starts to shape the area’s identity. Aside from a name, DMB has already planned what parts of the area will become home to residential, shopping, employment centers, tourist draws and more. The area encompasses the First Solar manufacturing plant under construction now and the proposed Gaylord resort, which could have up to 1,500 rooms.
DMB is accepting name submissions through Sept. 6. For information about the development or to suggest a name, go to www.dmbmesaprovinggrounds.com
