Arizona State University’s budding Mesa City Center campus stood out even among a long list of noteworthy business developments in Mayor John Giles’ annual State of the City address last week.

Giles’ address was considerably less controversial than President Trump’s State of the Union address, coincidentally delivered later that same day with much more fanfare.

The mayor enthusiastically listed numerous civic advancements, especially in business.

These projects included a new AT&T call center in west Mesa, the City Creek development under construction near the Mesa Temple of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, and two large apartment complexes scheduled to break ground later this year along Main Street.
