Background

Funded as part of the approved 2012 park bond, the City Center Design Concept will be the first step in the design and development of a distinctive place which will capture and enhance the urbanizing momentum of Mesa's downtown core.

When developed, the City Center will be anchored by a signature public space that offers programmed and passive space that will encourage informal gatherings, as well as being able to serve as event space. The signature public space will be a key element in the activation of the downtown core and will be a catalyst for high intensity redevelopment surrounding City Center with a variety of uses that activate the public space.

The City Center will be a benefit to the entire City and will improve the quality of life for Mesa residents, businesses and visitors.
 
To provide design options for consideration, the City has selected three qualified design teams from a total of 18 local, national, and international responses to a Request for Qualifications. Each design team will prepare an illustrative design concept that will function as the central element of an urbanizing downtown core and a catalyst for future redevelopment. In competition format, following completion of the initial illustrative design concept, it is anticipated that the top design concept will be considered for further detailing and refinement.
