Building Peoria through Capital Improvement Projects

Focus is attracting state-of-the art industries and high-tech jobs


PEORIA, Ariz. (January 9, 2012) – – The Economic Development Services department of the city of Peoria is focused on attracting state-of-the art industries and high-tech jobs. Building “new” is not all the department strives to accomplish. They also work hard to rehabilitate existing properties, which in turn will attract new businesses and patrons into existing areas of the city that are in need of transformation. An example of this effort is underway with the new rehabilitation program for commercial buildings in the Old Town District of Peoria.

The Old Town Commercial Rehabilitation Program is designed to promote and assist in the improvement of targeted Old Town commercial properties through exterior rehabilitation of building facades and related site improvements. Adopted in October 2010, the city’s goal is to use the program as a tool to revitalize the commercial district and reinvigorate private investment in these properties.

The first phase of the program targets the rehabilitation of Wagoner Plaza 1, which is on the southeast corner of Peoria and 85th Avenues, adjacent to the Center for the Performing Arts. The proposed improvements for Phase 1 include façade treatments, site and landscaping enhancements and plaza signage. These revitalization efforts will help to promote commercial redevelopment activities, improve the aesthetics of Old Town, and enhance the sense of civic pride for Peoria residents.

The contractor, Caliente Construction, will soon begin the first stage of construction activities, and anticipates the completion of all the improvements for the plaza in April 2012.

Some of the design parameters and elements that this project incorporates include the following:
• Contemporary Design Influence from the Performing Arts Theatre
• Enhancement of Building Frontage to Provide Openness
• Adjusted Roofline Articulation
• Expanded Sidewalk Area where possible
• Sign Monuments and Landscaping at Corners
• Landscape/Hardscape Improvements

For more information on this project and to learn more about our Commercial Rehabilitation Program, please contact Rebecca Zook, Site Development Manager, at 623-773-7589 or Rebecca.zook@peoriaaz.gov.
