Phoenix-based developer George Oliver has unveiled its redevelopment plans for the landmark Hayden Station mixed-use property in downtown Tempe, Arizona. Renamed as Arbor and planned with an abundance of foliage, the $41-million experiential office project will include an $18-million renovation that will transform the five-building campus into a one-of-a-kind office and retail destination, located within one of the nation’s most sought-after office markets.
Under a design theme of “Urban Organic,” Arbor will balance a natural material palette and indoor-outdoor environments with an experience-driven amenity package that pays homage to its premier urban location. The approach will place a heavy emphasis on vegetation, add patios and convert courtyards into semi-private park settings with outdoor collaborative and break-out spaces.
“We are excited to launch this one-of-a-kind product in downtown Tempe and even more excited for what it will bring to the market — high-touch design mixed with an unmatched amenity base that is exactly what users are asking for as they reoccupy their office spaces,” says George Oliver founder and managing partner Curt Kremer. “Arbor will deliver all of the comforts people have grown to love in their home office while also giving them the perfect canvas for safe on-site team collaboration in exceptional meeting and workspaces.”
Arbor is located at 310 S. Mill Ave., on the southwest corner of Mill Avenue and Third Street. The project was originally delivered to the market in 1986 as Hayden Station. Upon completion, Arbor will total 124,189 square feet with four two-story, mixed-use office-and-retail buildings and a five-story office building with premier shared amenities.
Renovations at Arbor begin in Q4 2021 and will complete during Q3 2022, with negotiations already underway for tenants looking to occupy office suites at Arbor as early as February 2022.
The design and architecture for Arbor is being led by George Oliver Design. The project general contractor is Layton Construction. Leasing is being handled by Scott Boardman and Dave Carder of Cushman and Wakefield. Arcadia Management Group will serve as Arbor’s on-site property manager.
