Last weekend my wife and I spent some time out in Tempe. We looked around Tempe Marketplace and took in a movie at the new Harkins theatre. Quite a few shops are open and many more are moving in. This area will be a great resource for Tempe residences and I can't wait to see it when it's done.
After the show we had a late lunch at Monte's and asked the staff about the historic restaurant. According to the people I spoke with there will be some renovation and expansion of the original structure but none of the history or the artifacts will be removed. The history, the service and the food will always make Monti's a great destination for visitors and locals alike.
From there we took a driving tour around Mill Ave and checked up on the Centerpoint construction site. According to Lisa Greg of Avenue Communities the first tower has reached it's peak and the crane will be coming down, construction on tower two is moving fast and the project appears to be on schedule. I have attended one guided building tours in the past and learned a lot about how the project will come together. Lisa mentioned that some of the condos are in drywall stage and better show how the homes will look when they are done. Contact WeKnowUrban directly if you would like more information on Centerpoint Condominiums or would like to arrange a tour of the building and construction site, or if you would like a personal tour of the Tempe area in general.
