The first phase of construction on Litchfield Park’s mixed-use development project, City Center, is underway.
When completed, the development project will include retail, restaurant, office and residential uses in multistory buildings surrounding a 2.5-acre park on the east side of Litchfield Road, north of Wigwam Boulevard.
Starting last week, demolition crews began clearing 26 acres and leveling the ground in preparation for utility installations and drainage improvements.
The city hired Achen-Gardner Construction LLC as its general contractor on the project, a Chandler-based company with “extensive experience in delivering complex infrastructure projects throughout the Southwest,” the city wrote in an announcement.
Plans for such a project have been in the works since 1996, and between 2014 and 2017, the city acquired four parcels of land for the future City Center.
Trucking and hauling activities will be present on nearby roads. For project information, please contact 602-532-6250. For all other information, please contact City Hall at 623-935-5033.
