Opus Partners to Deliver Dynamic Mixed-Use Development in Tempe

​The first of its kind in the area, Opus is bringing 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 will encompass a full city block and offer 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 will feature 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 will be 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 will have 22 walk-up city homes and flats wrapping the first four stories of the tower.

The towers will 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 will also be a fitness center and a dog walk. Avid bicyclers will appreciate a bike workroom and storage for 450 bikes. Dedicated parking will be available for residents, as well as a public parking garage that will accommodate more than 350 vehicles.

Residents will 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 is slated for completion in the summer of 2018.
