PHOENIX — Officials and business leader put some muscle behind their words Wednesday afternoon in Mesa to help break ground on a 354-unit high-end apartment complex.
The development is the first going up in area around Mesa Community College in more than 20 years.
“The Fiesta District is full of opportunities for high energy, creative projects like the Southern Avenue Villas,” Mayor John Giles said in a statement. “Developers willing to take a chance are getting in on the ground floor of its resurgence.”
The Southern Avenue Villas are located at Southern Avenue and Extension Road, near the struggling Fiesta Mall.
The complex was scheduled to open next spring.
