This is an exciting project Public Private Partnership (P3) with the City of Mesa and Chicanos por la Causa Development is an urban-mixed use infill project. The site is positioned as the gateway to the invigorated downtown Mesa corridor at Country Club and Main Street.
The project faced community concerns for which W+P successfully lead the community process. The final design provides market rate multifamily and retail with active space taking advantage of the Transit Oriented Development and Form Based Code guidelines.

the heard building
The design solution came out of our “innovation think tank”, a facilitated design thinking session with the owner and a group of potential users to see what other markets were there prior to any architectural design.
This new vision included the remodel of lobby and facade to create a new building image. The existing six story office building in downtown Phoenix on Central Avenue needed street presence to appeal to a younger entrepreneurial crowd. By removing the dark bronze glass and framing system and replacing with a contemporary clear frameless glass system the lobby and the main facade became more visible.
gladden farms elementary school
Gladden Farms Elementary School was envisioned as a result of educational master planning with the Marana USD. Winslow + partners worked with the teachers, administrators, parents, students and district officials to create the programming of spaces that encompassed the district's vision of a school for the 21st century.
This 83,000 sq. ft. K-6 school's classrooms were designed with operable glass partitions that opened into integrated common areas to allow teachers flexibility in how they arrange students according to differing needs of task, curricula, learning style, and special needs.

district at copper sky
The District at Copper Sky is a game-changing design paradigm for the City of Maricopa, a bedroom community that grew up so quickly but has no "there-there". The City sought out developers to create a dynamic mixed-use retail center in the same property as their new top of the line Sports Complex and park. In collaboration with a development team our firm created a master plan that would foster walkability, social interaction, and the mix of retailers to support a thriving town center.
By creating a plaza within the complex for people to socialize, the community's need for a civic space for events and celebrations to happen was fulfilled. The hotel, retail, restaurant, office and multifamily components were carefully layered to create "a there" with 24/7 eyes on the street, in a suburban town.
The project has received support from city council, civic leaders and Maricopa's economic development department. Our team has taken the time to develop a design strategy based on demand studies, demographics and commercial real estate analysis.

winslow + partners office
A 3,800 square-foot tenant improvement for the new winslow + partners’ offices in the heart of downtown Phoenix. Building on the office culture of total collaboration and constant interaction, the layout is completely open and surrounded by magnetic whiteboards and smaller break out spaces. The bigger conference room with three full walls of magnetic white board is dedicated to the Innovation-Think-Tank appropriate for the design thinking facilitation.
The white-on-white color scheme grew out of the firm’s belief in simple elegance, but also as an effort to provide continuity between the old and new without being too overwhelming.The layout of the Heard Building allows for maximum daylighting and great city views all around the office. Part of design was focused on keeping some of the historic elements like the operable windows facing Central Avenue and the old mail box slot (cast iron) in the elevator lobby.
The Heard Building Phoenix, Arizona
Our team created a conceptual design for a private developer who wanted a simple yet contemporary solution for the next generation of urban housing. A 12-story mixed-use building on Central Avenue and Monterey Way, with residential and commercial space, 226 units (with 1, 2, & 3 bedrooms), 3 floors of parking a common area with a negative edge pool and a jacuzzi overlooking Central Avenue. The bottom floor retail space tying back into the urban streetscape and light rail.
All the common spaces and amenities were designed to foster social interaction and urban living amongst residents.
