One of downtown Phoenix’s most highly anticipated developments is set to be completed at the end of 2019, after 14 years of planning and development, and downtown residents and workers are delighted, especially about one element of the project.
Block 23, a RED Development venture, is a high-rise, mixed-use project that includes a new 67,000-square foot Fry’s grocery store on the ground floor.
“The biggest missing component to downtown has been a grocery store,” said Vice President of RED Development Jeff Moloznik at a recent topping off ceremony on January 22.
Monica Garnes, president of Fry’s Food Stores, said the company was happy to eliminate the “food desert” in downtown Phoenix.
