PHOENIX – Arizona State University SkySong Innovation Center in Scottsdale announced this week it was expanding again, planning to add a sixth building to the mixed-use development.

The center released a design for SkySong6 on Monday, just ahead of completion on SkySong5, which was set to have its first tenants open for business in July.

“We are absolutely thrilled with the SkySong 5’s success and are already looking forward to preleasing on SkySong 6,” Sharon Harper, president & CEO of project developer Plaza Companies, said in a statement.

SkySong5 had reached 73 percent occupancy, the company said.

The sixth building at the 42-acre complex at McDowell and Scottsdale roads will take up about 340,000 square feet. The design featured floor-to-ceiling windows, parking and public spaces.

After the building is finished, the center will cover more than 1 million square feet.

The Phoenix Business Journal reported the addition would cost about $54 million.

Another piece of the center project, Element Hotel, was expected to open before the end of this month.

Tenants at other buildings on the site include California-based tech giant Oracle, Canon Solutions, cybersecurity firm Datashield, Ticketmaster and CenturyLink.

Scottsdale and the ASU Foundation for a New American University founded the SkySong project in 2005; the first buildings were opened in 2008.
