A California developer is finally bringing the long-delayed City North project to life. It could transform a large swath of land near Desert Ridge into a vast mixed-use landscape.

City North is once again a development to watch in the Valley.

The long-dormant project that stretches back more than two decades and covers thousands of desert acres in north Phoenix is awakening with the renewed potential to be a “city within the city” in the area near Desert Ridge Marketplace at Loop 101 and Tatum Boulevard.

A U.S. Bankruptcy Court ruling in early 2019 gave California-based Crown Realty & Development clearance to develop about 100 acres near the shopping center and granted it “master developer” rights to 5,700 more acres. Since then, all pending appeals have been settled in Crown’s favor, according to company CEO Robert Flaxman.
