SkySong Helps Spark Trend of Growth in Tenants

Numerous Firms Expand Space Within SkySong’s Four Buildings; Innovation & Flexibility Within Project Key to Supporting Growth

Companies locating at SkySong, The ASU Scottsdale Innovation Center are starting to see a trend — they end up needing more space over the course of time because of their growth.

“Once you step on site at SkySong,” said head property manager Scott Rubin of Plaza Companies, “you can feel the buzz. It’s like no other project in town.”
