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 luxury living 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.
