Employment Center – Heritage District

Roll over to zoom

The Heritage District is 0.3 square miles and offers opportunity for the adaptation of historic and significant properties in the original downtown area to uses that will have a positive impact on the adjacent residential and commercial sectors. Through its extensive redevelopment, planning, attraction and business retention and expansion efforts, Gilbert has experienced an influx in entrepreneurial restaurant, retail and art and cultural developments within the Heritage District. Several steps contributed to the success of Gilbert’s Heritage District including:

  • Partnership with Arizona State University’s Masters of Real Estate Development program to assess and develop solutions for vacant land within the Heritage District
    • Recommendation for a designated arts, culture and entertainment district in the downtown Heritage District
    • Development agreement for the Heritage Marketplace, a 70,000 square foot mixed-use project including restaurants like Zinburger, Pomo Pizzeria, Lo-Lo’s Chicken & Waffles and Barrio Queen Café along with office space and the potential addition of residential lofts in a future phase
