Construction begins on Goodyear Way

RED Development and Scottsdale-based Globe Corp. today announced a construction milestone at GSQ with the groundbreaking of Goodyear Way, the major street infrastructure connecting Goodyear Civic Square at GSQ to the 150-acre mixed-use development poised to become the city’s new downtown.

A joint venture between RED Development and Globe Corp., GSQ is set to transform Goodyear as the city’s premier cultural hub with dining, retail, residential, office, hotel and entertainment offerings. The Goodyear Way extension, situated on the east side of N. 150th Drive, will connect the existing city hall building and two-acre community park to the expansive mixed-use destination.

Designed to complement the Civic Square, GSQ will include a gathering place with first-of-its-kind entertainment concepts, a mix of both high-end and fast-casual restaurants along with an eclectic mix of retail and specialty shops. New tenants will include The Stillery, Bacchus Wine Bar, High Tide Seafood Bar & Grill, The Yard Milkshake Bar, Shake Shack, Over Easy and more.

"Embarking on this milestone at GSQ symbolizes the unwavering dedication to the vision of cultivating a thriving community hub,” said Mike Ebert, managing partner at RED. “Together, with Globe Corp. and the City of Goodyear, we are proud to create a vibrant destination that will resonate with the spirit of Goodyear.”

Goodyear Way marks a pivotal step in creating the heart of Goodyear. The walkable urban center stretches from I-10 to Encanto Boulevard and 150th Drive to Bullard Avenue.

“This phase marks a significant stride in developing Goodyear's new downtown. GSQ's momentum is undeniable, as it continues to draw interest in retail and Class A office spaces,” said George Getz, co-CEO at Globe Corp. “We look forward to sharing more exciting announcements as the project continues to progress.”

“Breaking ground on Goodyear Way is more than just a road construction project. It symbolizes something much more,” said Goodyear Mayor Joe Pizzillo. “We are literally paving the way into our city’s future through GSQ, the heart of our city. I can’t wait to hear about all the new restaurants and stores soon to be announced for our evolving downtown.”

The general contractor of GSQ is DCS Contracting, the architect is Nelsen Partners and the civil engineer is Coe & Van Loo Consultants.
