Thankful for the Tear-Down

Phoenix Mixed-Use

This Thanksgiving, Hines' Chris Anderson is thankful for his wife and kids, seen here, but also for being able to destroy something. “After navigating through two years of legal complexities, I am thankful to close the chapter on Elevation Chandler,” he says. Last week, Hines demolished the unfinished structure there to make way for Chandler Viridian, a mixed-use project that will include apartments, a hotel, 250k SF of Class-A office space and retail.


Nature has a sense of humor, or perhaps the mixed-use center will be as good as a pot of gold, as a rainbow appeared during the razing last week. Chris says Hines will begin construction of the Viridian project after the New Year, with Alliance Residential tapped to develop the Class-A apartment complex.
