« back to Our Projects


3.65 million square-foot mixed-use development. Ground-up development.

Challenge / Description

SouthBank at Town Lake is a unique mixed-use real estate development of approximately 3.65 million square feet, where business, entertainment, sports, retail, dining, residential enclaves, hotel and luxurious hospitality services, public promenades, and plazas will create a vibrant landmark for the City of Tempe Town Lake. SouthBank promises to be an address of distinction and superior lifestyle features. With its unique lake frontage, proximity to downtown Tempe, ASU, Sky Harbor Airport, and three major freeways, when completed, SouthBank will be considered one of the premier locations in Metro Phoenix, according to residential and commercial real estate experts.

The Promenade Retail District creates a pedestrian-;friendly village retail street flanked by residential buildings rising above the retail and restaurant spaces. Restaurants and open public plazas will further enliven the pedestrian experience.

The Residential District will provide a Village concept with four-story, townhouse-style structures facing Lake Front Park and the adjacent Karston Golf Course. Five residential towers will rise above the pedestrian-oriented streets providing homes with panoramic views of Lake Front Park, Camelback Mountain, the Phoenix Skyline, Town Lake, and the adjacent golf course. Residences above the ground-level retail and Residential Towers will offer a variety of floorplans, generous terraces, and access to pedestrian paths and retail and sports amenities.

The Hospitality District will be a signature icon featuring the hotel tower and luxurious high-rise tower with full resort and spa services.

Lake Front Park embraces the lake as well as the other districts in SouthBank to create an active waterfront that is connected to the boardwalk encircling the lake.

The project has been improved with all street, utilities, landscaping, and related infrastructure.
