Phoenix-based restaurant company Upward Projects knows a lot about expansion — its Postino brand has nearly 30 locations across six states — but one of its other restaurants that only had one location for 11 years is ready to grow.

Upward’s Federal Pizza will open a second location in the upcoming project, dubbed PV, that Red Development is building as part of the redevelopment of the Paradise Valley Mall site in northeast Phoenix at the northwest corner of Tatum Boulevard and Cactus Road in Phoenix.

The new Federal Pizza eatery, which will be 4,243 square feet, is expected to break ground in the coming weeks and then open in early 2025. It will be joining the likes of Whole Foods, Flower Child, TEN Sushi, Wren House Brewing, Trevor’s Liquors, Blanco and Life Time in the new mixed-use development.

“The team from Red called us … and it was a really unique opportunity and we jumped on it because we really love that neighborhood,” Lauren Bailey, the CEO of Upward Projects, told the Business Journal. “They gave us carte blanche to design that building too, which is always really exciting for us to partner with people who care about design.”
