Opus Partners to Deliver Dynamic Mixed-Use Development in Tempe

​The first of its kind in the area, Opus brought a mixed-use development consisting of retail and high-rise, upscale apartments to a vibrant, 3.22 acre property on the edge of Arizona State University in Tempe, Ariz. Formerly a surface parking lot, the transformed property encompasses a full city block and offers students and local residents a living option within walking distance of the campus, downtown Tempe, the Mill Avenue retail and entertainment district, Tempe’s business district, and the light rail transit system.

This mixed-use development features two high-rise apartment towers connected to 31,000 square feet of retail and restaurant space at ground level along University and 7th Street. Featuring a cascading design, the towers are 20 and 12 stories high with 407 apartments consisting of studio, one- and two-bedroom units, as well as some four-bedroom units with dens. With 7th Street frontage, the second tower has 22 walk-up city homes and flats wrapping the first four stories of the tower.

The towers share a vibrant fifth floor outdoor amenity deck with a resort-style swimming pool, barbecue grilling area, fire pits and outdoor lounges with cabanas. There is also a fitness center and a dog walk. Avid bicyclers appreciate a bike workroom and storage for 450 bikes. Dedicated parking is available for residents, as well as a public parking garage that accommodates more than 350 vehicles.

Residents enjoy top-of-the-line apartment amenities, including nine-foot ceilings, granite countertops, stainless steel appliances, premium cabinetry and private balconies with stunning views of the surrounding area and valley-wide vistas.

This mixed-use development was completed in the summer of 2018.
