A large $100 million mixed-use development, including retail shops, restaurants, office space and 350 residential units, is set to break ground in east Mesa in early 2008.
The planned Baseline Marketplace, at the northwest corner of Loop 202 and Baseline Road will occupy 52-acres. The Scottsdale-based developer, Glimcher Ventures Southwest, expects to finish construction in 2009.
“This emerging area of Mesa is long overdue for a project like Baseline Marketplace,” said Glimcher president, David Glimcher in a statement. “With over 200,000 people living within a five mile radius, there is a significant void in shopping centers. By combining retail, restaurants, office and residential (space), we plan to bring this community a great mixed-use experience.”
Baseline Marketplace is already attracting a high level of interest from prospective retailers and restaurateurs and tenants are already grabbing for spaces there, company officials said.
