Phoenix, Arizona – September 4, 2019 – Crismon Gateway Village has been in development for over 3 years.  Director of Leasing & Retail Sales Investments, Mary Nollenberger and Nicole Ridberg – Senior Advisors have been working with her long-time client, Rick Richmond with CCR North LLC to bring this beautiful mixed-use development to life.  This ± $40M development project will include a mix of retail, restaurant, and office building and 128-unit multifamily with individual suite patios – a project which the City of Mesa approved.

The ground-breaking Silver Shovel ceremony for Phase I launched in 2017 and brought in tenants such as Black Rock Coffee, Bella Nail Bar, Filiberto’s, Radius Fitness, and Doc’s Artisan Ice Cream, which completes the occupancy on the 1st phase. “We chose the location because of the community around it, the awesome building, and the future growth coming into the area,” said owner of Radius Fitness, Joshua Rodgers.

The Phase II launch tomorrow will be held at 1839 S. Crismon Rd. in Mesa, AZ  from 7:30 – 9:00am.  News Channel 3 with AZ Family will be there on site filming new tenant and Food Network’s ‘Holiday Baking Championship’ finalist, Sassy’s Café & Bakery.  Unlike your normal ground-breaking ceremonies, Sassy’s will have an oven exhibit outside baking their famous cinnamon rolls to hand out to the guests. SVN’s Retail Director Nollenberger stated, “We are so excited to be celebrating the ground breaking of Phase II of the Retail community of Crismon Gateway Village and to welcome the newest members of the Crismon Gateway family.”  SVN Senior Advisor Nicole Ridberg has also been working on the lease deals throughout the project.  Alongside Sassy’s Café & Bakery, Phase II tenants will include Martin Dental, and Vantage West Credit Union may be joining the line of great tenants along with a Smoothie tenant.

“We have been intentional about hearing the voice of the community and responding to their wishes in creating a family gathering spot with amenities chosen to be unique – a place to relax and enjoy the special moments of life,” said Nollenberger.
