If you drive out to North Peoria, specifically the intersection of 83rd Ave and Happy Valley Road, you won’t find much—for now. But for all of you living or considering a home out in Peoria or the northwest valley, I was so excited to hear about the transformation that’s happening on that corner of land! Construction is already underway on 83 Marketplace, a retail plaza with a promising new lineup of restaurants.
Here’s the scoop on the newest culinary concepts announced in the space. Deem Proper will offer globally-inspired fare in contemporary, yet comfortable digs. Their beer and wine menu invites patrons to try locally crafted Arizona favorites, plus cocktails that rotate seasonally.
S & V Urban Italian is also joining 83 Marketplace and already operates a location in Scottsdale, where exceptional Italian with a modern twist is their pride and joy. They’ll be serving up wood-fired pizzas and signature fresh fruit martinis in a laid-back atmosphere.
A new concept in upscale, upbeat Mexican food is AVENIDA Modern Mexican. The restaurant will tap into top local businesses for ingredients, and offer fresh and eclectic takes on Mexican favorites: handmade tortillas, seafood, hand-crafted margaritas and tequilas among them.
Our neighbors up north are gracing us with Bagels on Fire, a Toronto-based bagel company with a fiery old-fashioned technique. They boil their fresh bagels in honey water, then fire them in a brick oven (and yep, you can watch!).
The 83 Marketplace tenants are the efforts of the developer (MDC Land Development) and the community to bring upscale dining options to the area. For area residents and visitors, the plaza will offer plenty of open space for indoor and outdoor dining and shopping. This exciting project isn’t the only one in the works, either; just across the street, the Trailhead project is underway with a Safeway and more community amenities.
It’s a hot time to be in the surrounding neighborhoods as projects like these develop making this a desirable community to live in – thousands of new homes are expected to be built in this area in the next few years!
