The Local, a new, multimillion-dollar, mixed-use development located in the heart of downtown Tempe at University Drive and Ash Avenue, is set to welcome its first residents April 2019. This newest addition to the Tempe market will be anchored by the region’s newest lifestyle Whole Foods Market.
“We are excited to be joining the Tempe community and to delivering the ~580,000 gross square foot building this Spring,” stated Kevin Foltz, Managing Director of Development at Forum Real Estate Group, owners and developers of the project. “We look forward to welcoming residents and neighbors alike to come experience the unique design features and services that The Local has to offer,” said Foltz.
Located at the bustling intersection of University Drive and Ash Avenue, the 286-unit property features studio, one-, two- and three-bedroom apartments within five levels. Occupying the ground floor will be a brand-new Whole Foods Market with three levels of parking directly above: one level with reserved parking for Whole Foods Market shoppers, and two additional levels reserved for residents. The Local is conveniently located a short walking distance from Arizona State University and 10 minutes from Sky Harbor International Airport.
