PHOENIX — A Phoenix developer has announced plans to take on a $14 million transformation of an office complex on Mill Avenue in downtown Tempe.

Developer George Oliver will turn the Hayden Station mixed-use office campus into a location that includes retail and restaurant space with open-concept interiors and high-touch designs.

The 107,000-square-foot complex, located at Mill Avenue and Third Street, has been home to a five-story office building and four two-story mixed-use buildings since 1986.

“From a live-work-play perspective, this location is our most exciting infill, campus-style repositioning strategy to date,” Curt Kremer, George Oliver founder, said in a press release.

“It has everything in place – great existing structures, dynamic employee and tenant demographics, and a strong mixed-use character – to deliver one of the best George Oliver concepts in the country.”

The concept will have a heavy emphasis on the connection between indoor and outdoor space, using courtyards and circulation spaces.

The downtown Tempe makeover will also incorporate designs George Oliver has used in other Valley complexes, according to the release.

The developer has worked on CASA in Phoenix’s Uptown neighborhood, The Alexander and The Johnathan in downtown Chandler and Lofts at The District in north Scottsdale.
