Mesa is seeing “explosive growth” in population and new development as the city — already Arizona’s third-largest and No. 38 in the nation — approaches half a million residents, Mesa Mayor John Giles said Tuesday during his annual State of the City address.
Phoenix tends to run hot and cold, and currently it’s in hot mode. Arizona is among the top handful of U.S. states for economic and population growth, creating strong demand for multifamily.
Construction on the Loop 202 South Mountain Freeway started on Sept. 19 with improvements at the Interstate 10/Loop 202 Santan Freeway/Pecos Road interchange between Phoenix and Chandler, according to Arizona Department of Transportation. Shoulders are being widened, and the Loop 202 high-occupancy vehicle lanes will be extended over I-10 to 48th Street.
Arizona has won another round in court to allow development of the Loop 202 South Mountain Freeway. The ruling lets Arizona Department of Transportation stay on schedule for beginning mainline freeway construction early in 2017.
After a delay of a few months, initial work on the segment began in October, most of it involving preparation work along the road, including some demolition and relocation of lighting, said Jodi Sorrel, Mesa’s transit director. Completion of the project is expected in about two years.
The ASU Research Park has a $1.4 billion economic impact and the companies at the R&D and business park generate more than 16,100 jobs. That is according to a new economic impact report by Arizona State University’sW.P. Carey School of Business.

This year marks one of the highest rates of completion of multifamily developments since 2000. It also exceeds investment activity levels not seen since 2007. In turn, rental rates rose for a seventh consecutive year, which marks a 30 percent rise since 2009.
