South Tempe left out of city’s construction boom

By Lindsay Walker | Your Valley

It’s no secret that the Valley has gained a massive influx of new residents over the last several years, pushing up rents and home values in the process, and offering developers the opportunity to get to work to accommodate them.

The same can be said for Tempe, which has gained new tenants like Amazon and thousands of new residents to add to the expanding college town. Projects like 100 Mill and South Pier have taken over downtown Tempe, perhaps to go along with the new Tempe Streetcar that will soon wind its way through the area.
