With the opening of the temporary branch of the Burton Barr Library on January 5, the future of the new Park Central truly began.
Revitalization efforts for Phoenix’s first mall will include much, much more than just a makeover — and more than just office and retail space. A key priority for the redevelopment effort will also be to restore Park Central’s place as a hub in the central Phoenix community.
The project’s owners, Plaza Companies and Holualoa Companies, are pursuing this goal in a variety of different ways. Along with hosting the temporary library, the group also is also planning several other avenues to enhance the project.
