Scottsdale Fashion Square marks renovation milestone


On Oct. 18, members of the Scottsdale community and elected officials celebrated a major milestone at Scottsdale Fashion Square.

The Macerich-owned mall is undergoing exterior and interior updates, including transforming the north entrance into a two-story, luxury entry point for the shopping center.

Scottsdale Jim Lane and City Councilmember Virginia Korte, along with notable retailers, Macerich executives and Kitchell representatives all autographed the back of a 40-foot marquee sign installed on the newly renovated Goldwater Boulevard Bridge.

Fashion Square, 7014 E. Camelback Road, has more than 200 shops and restaurants, including 40 of the finest luxury and contemporary brands in the world. It’s lauded as one of the premier shopping destinations in the country.

Inside the mall, shoppers will see two-story storefronts and the wing features fine finishes including new tile with white marble access and new column treatments. Additionally, old obtrusive escalators and elevators in the wing were removed to make way for new vertical transportation, installed next to Dillards, to increase visibility of the retailers.

Additional phases of the shopping center’s renovation are in the planning stages, with the goal of maximizing the mall’s location in the heart of Scottsdale. This includes plans for high-end residential units, Class A office space and a hotel.

Scottsdale Fashion Square first opened in 1961.
