Tempe is the Destination for Business!

It is an exciting time to be working in the city of Tempe! Within the past year, it seems like a new business has opened its doors every week, and a new office building pops up every month. Drive along the Rio Salado Parkway, and it looks like downtown Tempe changes daily! In fact, over 300 technology-based firms, and 3,000 finance, insurance, and real estate companies call Tempe “home.”

Adding to the developing skyline of Tempe Town Lake is the new 10-story Hayden Ferry Lakeside III building. Housing major financial and tech businesses, this new high-rise is expected to bring 900 more jobs to the area.  This is the third building of the Hayden Ferry Lakeside project, a mixed-use development with 750,000 square feet of Class A office space, restaurants, shopping, entertainment, and more, including current tenants Smith and Barney, KPMG, and Microsoft.  In addition, several nearby office towers house other well- known companies including Limelight Networks, Waste Management and new offices of Silicon Valley Bank to name a few. “This new luxury office space will allow Arizona to court prominent national and international businesses seeking a high-profile site in the West or Southwest,” said Molly Ryan Carson, vice president of Ryan Companies, a construction and real estate development firm. 

As an IACC (International Association of Conference Centers) certified hotel, Tempe Mission Palms easily hosts off-site meetings, training workshops, and employee retreats, and our location can’t be beat.  Just minutes away from Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport, and steps away from pedestrian-friendly Mill Avenue district, Tempe Mission Palms is the number one choice of companies in the area.  The ever-changing and growing city of Tempe is our home, and we are proud to be right in the heart of it all.
