City Within a City

Comprising 144-acres of mixed-use development with retail, restaurant, residential, office and hotel, CityNorth® is situated in the affluent area of Northeast Phoenix and is the commercial core of the Desert Ridge® master-planned community. Phase I, which has been constructed and opened to business, consists of nearly 1M SF. Total build out is expected to be 5.5 to 6M SF.

Optimus has provided all facets of site civil engineering services since 2002. Specifically, Optimus’ design services include, but are not limited to, master plan feasibility analysis, mass grading, off and on-site drainage facilities, sewer and water systems, as well as all internal vehicular driveways and at-grade parking fields.

Since the recession, Optimus continues to be involved in the project by working with several potential buyers and developers to assist them in infrastructure assessment for subsequent phases.
