SkySong 6 Design Plans Presented to City for Review, With Construction on New Building Scheduled to Start in May 2020

Largest Building in Project Will Be Accompanied by Parking Structure

SCOTTSDALE, Arizona (January 7, 2020) — The developers of SkySong, The ASU Scottsdale Innovation Center have filed for design approval with the City of Scottsdale for SkySong 6, which will be the largest building in the project.

SkySong 6 will be the next building to be constructed at SkySong, with construction now scheduled to begin in May 2020. The new Class A office building will include approximately 340,000 square feet of leasable space in six stories with an adjacent multi-story parking structure.

Butler Design Group, the architect for the project has created cutting-edge design concepts and renderings for the new building, which will have an imposing presence at the hard southeast corner of Scottsdale and McDowell Roads. A key differentiator of SkySong 6 will be 55,000 square foot floor plates — the largest floor plates built along Scottsdale Road in the past 20 years.

Plaza Companies is the developer of SkySong 6 and the master developer of the overall SkySong development, in partnership with Holualoa Companies; University Realty, a subsidiary of ASU Enterprise Partners; and the City of Scottsdale. Layton Construction will be the general contractor for the project, and Alliance Bank will provide financing for the building.

“We are very pleased to be able to start work on this exciting new addition to the SkySong project,” said Sharon Harper, President & CEO of Plaza Companies, the master developer of the project. “This new building will add dramatically to the overall signature of the project and provide an exceptional environment for its tenants.”

The approximately 340,000 square foot building SkySong 6 building features floor-to- ceiling glass windows facing out to the intersection of Scottsdale and McDowell Roads. A large public space will be located on the corner, with a second-story balcony overlooking the area. Construction of SkySong 6 will also include a new parking structure to serve the two newest buildings. SkySong 6 will be integrated into the project with significant pedestrian and bike connections designed to promote health and wellness, outdoor gathering and meeting spaces and other state-of-the-art features.
