• AT&T is spending hundreds of millions of dollars in the Valley to upgrade service. The telecom company announced it invested nearly $350 million in its Phoenix-area networks over the past three years. The company says the upgrades are creating faster, more reliable coverage and network performance for residents and businesses.

• Evergreen Development is ramping up construction at its 31-acre Trellis on Bell apartment complex in Phoenix. New restaurant and retail tenants have signed leases to help anchor the 12,000-square-foot mixed-use site near 12th Street and Bell Road. Retailers in the first phase are expected to be ready by the end of the year. The apartments should be completed in 2018.
