Restaurant Pad Breaks Ground At SkySong
From: Phoenix Business Journal – June 15, 2016 By: Mike Sunnucks
Infill and restaurant developer Wetta Ventures has broke ground on a new $5 million restaurant project at Arizona State University’s SkySong development in south Scottsdale.
The project will include three or four different restaurants. It totals 12,000 square feet and will also have a 3,000-square-foot garden.
Completion is set for the end of the year.
SkySong is located at the former Los Arcos mall site at Scottsdale and McDowell Road. The development is home to office buildings, technology companies and an apartment complex.
“This will be the only food and beverage amenity for the 42-acre Innovation Center, so there’s a lot of responsibility to make this a one-of-a-kind destination that will reflect the uniqueness of the overall development,” said David Wetta, founder of Wetta Ventures.
Wetta has done some other infill, adaptive reuse and restaurant projects in the Phoenix market.
A 45-foot cantilevered overhang will give shade to outdoor portions of the SkySong restaurants.
SkySong has been developed by the ASU Foundation, Plaza Cos. and Holualoa Cos.
“We are excited to be working with Wetta Ventures on this important addition to SkySong,” said Sharon Harper, president and CEO of Plaza Companies, the master developer of the project.
