Fortis Acquires Mountainview Plaza

Multi-Million Dollar Redevelopment Plan Starts January

November 30, 2018 Phoenix, Arizona

Fortis Development acquired the 122,000 square foot shopping center and East Thunderbird Road and North 32nd Street in Phoenix, Arizona. The project was formerly anchored by Safeway, who closed the store at this location as a result of the Albertaon's merger, leaving the center without an anchor. Fortis is intorducing  Vasa Fitness to the Phoenix market and worked with Brian Gast of Velocity Retail and Bryan Babits of Western Retail Advisors to land the 55,000 new fitness center to revitalize the project.

Fortis Development, in a joint venture with Queen Creek XVIII, is proud to announce the master-planned development of The Ironwood District located on 107 acres at the north east corner of North Ironwood Road and East Ocotillo Road in San Tan Valley, Arizona.
Fortis is planning the site for a hotel, multi-family apartment units, up to 300,000 square feet of entertainment, dining, fitness and other retail uses with 50 acres of engineered, platted single-family residential lots all thoughtfully designed with lakes and 15 acres of open space.
Developed to meet the exploding demand of the far-east valley, The Ironwood District will serve the immediate neighborhood which has over 1,100 homes under construction with thousands more planned or being platted. Located just south of the new connection of State Route 24 at Ironwood Road (projected completion date 2020), the project has convenient access to highway infrastructure and is minutes away from Queen Creek, Chandler, Gilbert, Mesa and the surrounding cities of the East Valley, as well and providing exciting new dining and shopping opportunities for the growing San Tan Valley and beyond. According to a popular valley real estate blog:
     “Queen Creek and San Tan Valley are seeing exponential growth and they are leading the way for        Pinal County’s future growth and eventually becoming the next megapolitan area. In fact, Pinal County estimates that by the year 2050, San Tan Valley will have an estimated population of 1.7 million people.”
