SCOTTSDALE FASHION SQUARE MALL CONSTRUCTION UPDATE (SEPTEMBER 2018)
If you have visited the Scottsdale Fashion Square Mall in 2018 you have seen a lot of changes – both inside where they are doing nightly interior renovation work (which is nearing completion) and outside around the North-west corner entrance that has been closed to make way for the Luxury expansion entrance currently being built. You can also visit their website for more details as well.
Since the beginning of the renovations we have been posting updates on the progress and here are more updates you will want to be aware of…
OCEAN 44 IS NOW HIRING (AND CLOSE TO OPENING!)
If you are familiar with and currently enjoy Steak 44 (OCEAN 44 ) or Dominicks Steakhouse in Scottsdale, then you should love Ocean 44. Based on current conversations with the managers located at Steak 44, Ocean 44 is tentatively scheduling a few soft-launch events to help work out the kinks leading to a general opening to the public in early November (times are subject to change of course). They are also in the process of hiring so if you or somebody you know may be interesting in working for what is sure to be one of the hottest new restaurants in Scottsdale this year, you can apply at their hiring location in the mall located next to UNTUCKit (Level 1, near the new Apple Store on the East side of the mall)
THE NEW APPLE STORE SHOULD BE OPEN BY OCTOBER 1ST (or maybe sooner)
If you are a fan of Apple, their products, or their unique “glass house” stores, you will be able to experience it all soon at the Fashion Square Mall. As reported in the Phoenix Business Journal, the new Apple store located on the eastern-side of the mall where the former Barney’s store was located is planning to open within a few weeks…or more likely sometime before October 1st to be more precise!
BTW, did you know that Apple stores are now the highest grossing retail stores in the US based on revenue per square foot? Even more interesting is the story of who designed the first Apple stores…the man that Steve Jobs hired from the GAP. It is a great story that can be read in full here…
NOBU OPENING AT FASHION SQUARE MALL?
If you love sushi, you will love the latest rumor…that Nobu may be the third restaurant opening in the new Fashion Square Mall expansion next to Ocean 44 and Toca Madero. Again, this is still only a rumor and nothing official but I did hear this from credible sources involved with the expansion. If this is true, then you won’t need to go far for the best steaks, seafood and sushi in Scottsdale!
WHO SAID SUMMERS AREN’T FUN IN THE VALLEY OF THE SUN?
I had a very busy summer working with a lot of great clients! One of my favorite memories was helping to “scrape” a new lot in Paradise Valley for one of my buyers who are planning to build their dream home. Here is one of the many pictures from that day and yes, it was a blast!
