Goodyear Civic Square Update

The Goodyear Civic Square at Estrella Falls project is moving forward despite disruptions from the coronavirus pandemic. The project will bring a new civic park, four-story city hall, two-story library, office suites, shops, and a parking garage. 

Groundbreaking near McDowell Road and Pebble Creek Parkway just north of Interstate 10 is scheduled for April 23—Mayor Georgia Lord’s birthday. Years before she was elected mayor, Lord helped craft a vision for the civic center. Lord was the chair of a committee that initiated a project that has been discussed since 1984.

Despite the pandemic, Goodyear is flourishing which means the Civic Square at Estrella Falls will move ahead. While the coronavirus impact has not been financial, the project designers were able to adjust building plans to accommodate social distancing and healthy hygiene practices. For example, all of the building doors will be automatically opening doors, so you don’t have to touch them and the restrooms will have touchless faucets.

Amazon and Aldi Coming to Goodyear!

Great news for shoppers (online and in-person) and job seekers in Goodyear! Not only has Amazon signed a $20 million deal to purchase 90 acres at Indian School Road and Cotton Lane, Aldi grocery stores recently announced it will open a store at Estrella Parkway and Roosevelt Street by the end of 2020. In addition to a grocery store, Aldi also has plans to build a distribution center in the west valley.

While Arizona continues to face record high unemployment due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, these two companies are sure to bring a multitude of job opportunities to the west valley.

Even though it is not yet clear when Amazon plans to build a warehouse or distribution center on the 90 acres, the site is certain to bring in jobs.

During this pandemic that has led to tens of thousands of layoffs in the state, Goodyear is fortunate to be able to continue to grow its base of workers.
