It’s time for the October 2020 Market Update!
Great things are still happening in Central Phoenix! Since our original post a little over a year ago, the redevelopment of Park Central Mall has continued despite all of the curve balls that 2020 has thrown.
In addition to what we mentioned below, a multi-million dollar parking structure and construction of a new hotel are set to begin late this year. The new art component, called The New Archive includes space for six large murals that are sure to add to Downtown Phoenix’s vibrant street art scene. In addition, Creighton University’s Health Sciences Campus is scheduled for completion in Spring 2021 and the apartment complex, Aspire Park Central, is also now under construction with plans for 278 units.
Per Phoenix Mayor Katie Gallego, “The transformation of Park Central is a shining example of the power of public-private partnerships. The city, the mall owners and the construction and development team worked together to create a beautiful, multi-use hub that will serve an important role in the revitalization of midtown. Park Central will be a model for how modern cities adapt to the needs of both businesses and community members.”

SEPTEMBER 2019 POST:
Phoenix has seen significant improvement these last few years, and Midtown is no exception.
Park Central Mall first opened in 1957 as a regional outdoor mall and was the brainchild of brothers, Ralph and A.J. Burgbacher. The two purchased the 46-acre property – located at Central Avenue and Earll Drive – in the 1950s, and it quickly became the hub of activity along Central Avenue. By the late 1990s, much of the mall had turned into office buildings and data centers with a few popular restaurants included in the mix.
Several developers failed to buy the once iconic shopping center on Central Avenue between Thomas and Osborn roads, but a group that redeveloped another old Valley mall succeeded in 2017.
Now, the former low-rise mall is about to sprout a tower to house Creighton University’s $100 million medical school, a nine-story apartment building, a new parking structure, an arts center to house 400 and lots of outside, shaded meeting spaces. Park Central recently reinstalled its iconic statue, the Sun Worshiper.
While retail and restaurant spaces are still being filled, Valley-based sports bar Zipps has recently taken space inside the area. Zipps joins Thai Basil, First Watch, Fired Pie and Pita Bistro, to name a few.
Park Central is located in a central spot in the Valley, with easy access to major freeways, two light-rail stations nearby and is in between some of Phoenix’s hottest neighborhoods. This area truly shows off all of what Phoenix is to its core.

Favorite Place in the World
My favorite place in the world has to be St. Thomas, USVI. I have gone there every year for the last 10 years and I cannot get enough of the white sand beaches, blue water, and rum punch!
Favorite Holiday Tradition
I don’t really have any holiday traditions, but I do enjoy taking time during the holidays to unwind and slow down and to hang with my family and my wife. Our lives are so hectic so it’s nice to take a couple days and enjoy the company of my loved ones.
Beverage of Choice
I have a couple beverages that I absolutely love. I am a big water drinker (kinda boring at times) but I also love my morning coffee or the spicy margarita at the Omni Hotel in Paradise Valley.
If I weren’t in my current position I would be…..
If I weren’t selling real estate, I would be involved in sports management or some sort of small business. I got my degree in Entrepreneurship, so growing/starting a business is a passion of mine. I also love sports – the business side of that fascinates me!
Can’t live without….
I can’t live without my dog and my wife! One of them keeps me sane and teaches me to find joy in the smallest moments, and the other is my complete rock who keeps the wheels on the wagon!

On Sundays you can usually find me at brunch at various restaurants around the valley, or walking my dog Lola along the canals!

A talent that most people don’t know
A fun fact I always like to tell people is that I am actually a published author! When I was in grade school, I had a poem of mine about basketball published in a poetry book!
When I’m not working, I like to….
I am happiest doing almost nothing when I am not working. I am a big fan of being a couch potato and unwinding after a hectic day!
My first job was a retail sales job when I was 19 I believe! I started selling teen clothing which led me to working at Lululemon where I sold yoga pants and sports bras for nearly 4 years! I know more about women’s workout clothes than my wife!
Favorite Travel Destination
I love traveling to the Virgin Islands (I go there every year), but hands down, my favorite travel destination is the Maldives. I travelled there for my honeymoon and it’s by far the most beautiful destination ever! I stayed in a little hut right over the water and it was pure heaven!

Summer – and especially summer holidays – are looking very different this year. While we know the family pets will be happy about most fireworks displays being cancelled for the holiday, we also know they are probably the only ones! The good news is, with a little creativity and planning, your 4th of July holiday can be a super fun and memorable one.
The traditional fare of hot dogs, apple pie, and corn on the cob is a given, but here are some ideas to take the celebration to the next level!
Twinkly lights will take any yard – or room – to festive immediately, so get out those clear, red and blue holiday lights. You can also scroll through Pinterest for some crafty ideas, like these patriotic wind catchers, paper lanterns and party poppers. And don’t forget about the sparklers for after the sun goes down!
Make Some Sweet Treats
The sky is the limit here! With a quick internet search, we found patriotic dessert recipes that will satisfy everyone’s sweet tooth, like these Coconut Water & Berry Popsicles, holiday Rice Krispie Treats, and homemade ice cream sandwiches decorated with red, white and blue sprinkles.
Plan a Few Activities
Get everyone involved with a fun 4th of July Scavenger Hunt, a round or two of holiday trivia, and if you have a pool, set up your own dive-in movie with a blow-up screen or sheet and inexpensive projector.
Take in Some Fireworks
According to ABC15 news, a few fireworks shows are still happening. All are drive-in only, and some feature food trucks and music. Go to https://www.abc15.com/entertainment/events/fourth-of-july-fireworks-2020-where-to-see-july-4th-fireworks-around-phoenix for all the details.
We hope these ideas inspired you to try something different this Independence Day, and maybe even start a new holiday tradition. All of us at The Caniglia Group wish you a happy and safe 4th of July!
