Slated for completion in 2019, Block 23 will also include approximately 330 apartments by StreetLights Residential, 200,000 square feet of creative office space, restaurant and retail uses along with above- and below-grade parking.

Fry’s Food Stores’ urban grocery concept will be a flagship, community asset that will integrate the best practices of the nation’s largest grocer and the state’s best-in-class operator. With no expense spared in delivering the highest quality grocery product, the downtown location will also be the most technologically advanced grocery store in the state.

Focused on community, creativity and commerce, Block 23 continues RED Development’s commitment to the urban core of Phoenix and marks CityScape’s expansion to 2nd Street.
