The Broadway Corridor extends from Broadway Road to US 60, Priest Road to approximately Kyrene Road or Dromedary Drive. It’s more than a mile of mostly commercial, industrial and manufacturing uses and the entire area has been designated an Opportunity Zone.
The area is home to many wonderful companies that craft creative and high quality goods, such as doors, honey, orange juice and much more.
The City of Tempe is considering an enhanced effort to attract a more integrated industry base to this area to revitalize it. While Tempe on average has a 5 percent vacancy rate for industrial property, this area has an 11 percent vacancy rate.
Tempe Economic Development is exploring ways to promote this Opportunity Zone, designating the area the Tempe Maker District and highlighting the locally-crafted products and services manufactured in this area through a 'Made in Tempe' campaign.
