Camelback Colonade
THE CAMELBACK CO-OPS
“An Adaptive Re-use Plan for the Camelback Corridor”
The Past:

1960’s – Sears & Roebuck at Sears-Rhodes Center
Sears-Rhodes Center
1970’s – 2009: Mervyns
Westcor acquires center, several renovations follow, and name changed to Colonnade Mall
Colonade Mall
The Present: Recession, Bankruptcy, Blight
Mervyns files for bankruptcy and shutters its stores in 2009, leaving a huge vacancy.

Vacancy & Uncertainty
Potential & Hope, but what’s next?
The Future: A New Beginning

  • A new business plan and a fresh start to inject needed life into an aging strip mall.
  • No more “big box” chain retail in the space.
  • A communal business environment, subdivided, but with a common sense of both place and purpose within the community.
  • A space for both established and “start-up” businesses to collaborate, share ideas, and grow together.
  • Leasable sub-spaces with an eclectic and diverse mix of shopping, dining, and services.

Examples of Similar Local Spaces:
1.) “POOL Together” – Mesa, AZ
Unfortunately shuttered in February, 2011, but was never properly promoted and was sited at a poor location. Could be successful at Camelback Colonnade. Also a former Mervyns.

2.) “In Co+Hoots” – Phoenix, AZ

  • A workspace for the creative class, comprised of local independent artists, designers, writers, photographers, etc.
  • Spaces leasable long-term, or for as little as one day.

3.) “Kitchen Sink Studios”
– Phoenix, AZ
Another creative-class, cooperative workspace, much like “In Co+Hoots”, bringing together like-minded individuals and businesses in the spirit of shared ideas and collaboration.
