Mesa City Center
Project No. CP0013



Project Updates


The City of Mesa completed an RFQ process to select consultants to design a conceptual master plan. Three firms were selected and are currently under contract negotiations. Once conceptual designs are completed they will be taken to City of Mesa management for direction.

Mesa City Council recently approved a City staff recommendation to select Colwell Shelor + West 8 + Weddle Gilmore to lead the design process to transform 18 acres surrounding Mesa's City Plaza building, between Main Street and First Street, into a proposed City Center, or urban plaza.

The next steps in the process are to negotiate a professional services contract and receive additional public input for design changes.
