About a week out from the show, Shelley checked her digital wallet on her phone and realized one of her two Backstreet Boys’ tickets had disappeared.

GLENDALE, AZ (3TV/CBS 5) — A Glendale woman bought a pair of tickets to see the Backstreet Boys to celebrate her friend’s birthday. But as the concert date approached, one of those tickets mysteriously disappeared. For Shelley Hiatt, hearing the Backstreet Boys takes her back to her high school years. And like most teen girls back then, she had her favorite. “Girl crush,” Hiatt said, “it was, it was Nick but all of them really.”

Shelley thought she’d never get a chance to see the group live. Until two years ago when the Backstreet Boys announced a tour stop in the Phoenix area. “My friends back in high school in Texas, they’ve already seen them twice now,” she said. “They were coming to Phoenix, so I was excited, and I called up one of my girlfriends and for her birthday in October, I was planning on getting her the tickets.”

This was back in 2020. Hiatt paid around $300 for both concert tickets. But then COVID-19 hit. Like many concerts, the Backstreet Boys’ show was postponed twice until earlier this month, when the group was scheduled to perform in Phoenix. However, about a week from the show, Hiatt checked her digital wallet on her phone and realized one of her two Backstreet Boys’ tickets had disappeared. “I have one ticket and the other ticket is nowhere to be found,” she said. “I log into my Ticketmaster account where I bought them. And it’s not showing any past future present tickets, no expired tickets.”

Hiatt says she had no idea why one of her concert tickets mysteriously vanished. And when she tried to complain to TicketMaster, she says she never heard back with an answer. Having only one ticket, both Hiatt and her friend decided to skip the concert and contacted On Your Side for help.

After getting ahold of TicketMaster, they looked into the issue and decided to refund Shelley for both tickets. It was a total of around $300. Shelley says it only happened because of On Your Side. “You are for the people and you try to make what was done wrong right,” she said. “I really appreciate that.”

By City of Glendale

“District at Sportsman’s Park, Glendale” will be the name of a new, innovative and vibrant mixed-use project being built in a collaboration between the City of Glendale, the Arizona Cardinals and Plaza Companies.

The 62-acre site is located east of Loop 101, south of State Farm Stadium and to the east of the new VAI Resort, which recently announced plans to build the largest hotel in the State. Additionally, the new Mattel Adventure Park with brand experiences from Barbie, Masters of the Universe, Hot Wheels, Thomas & Friends, and Mattel Games is under construction within the VAI Resort. District at Sportsman’s Park, Glendale, includes two parcels of land in the northwest portion of the property owned by an affiliate of the Arizona Cardinals. The remainder of the site is owned by the City of Glendale.

Upon completion, the vision for this high energy, mixed-use environment could include office, hospitality, shopping, restaurant, retail and multi-family uses. The site will be master planned to maintain parking for State Farm Stadium and the VAI Resort while adding to a vibrant fan experience.

An Offering Memorandum for a 20+/- acre parcel in the northeast portion of the property for a mixed use development is expected to go to market in July.

The Sportsman’s Park brand is already a well-known identity with the Great Lawn at Sportsman’s Park and Heritage at Sportsman’s Park. Both venues are to the west of State Farm Stadium and are used for special events and tailgating on game days.

“We are looking forward to making District at Sportsman’s Park, Glendale a reality for the City of Glendale and the region as a whole,” said Sharon Harper, Chairman and CEO of Plaza Companies. “This strong public-private partnership will lead to a significant economic impact and will include an innovative development approach designed to make it stand out as a destination for businesses and visitors.”

The team will collaborate on creating a vision for a strong region-wide identity through the use of art, landscape and shade, and exciting overall connectivity between State Farm Stadium and throughout the project.

“The connection between District at Sportsman’s Park, Glendale and State Farm Stadium – and its adjacent Great Lawn – brings a unique opportunity for an enhanced guest and user experience year-round as we continue to add amenities such as Heritage at Sportsman’s Park and the BetMGM Sportsbook,” said Michael Bidwill, owner of the Arizona Cardinals. “We look forward to collaborating with Plaza Companies and the City of Glendale to create a distinctive mixed-use business center that attracts companies, creates jobs and enhances our exceptional regional amenities.”

“This project will create new employment opportunities for the community, attract business and commerce to the area and will provide additional enhancements for this critically important area of Glendale,” said Glendale City Manager Kevin Phelps. “We look forward to continuing to work with Plaza Companies and the Arizona Cardinals on this project as we create a new economic engine for the community and a dynamic live, work, experience in Glendale that is unrivaled in the region.”

The project is adjacent to iconic entertainment venues and comes at a time when the eyes of the world will soon be on Glendale again as State Farm Stadium will host its third Super Bowl in 2023 and the NCAA Men’s Basketball Final Four for a second time in 2024.

Global sports brand signs major lease in West Valley

The latest company to sign a lease for 1 million square feet in the Valley is Germany-based Puma, one of the world's leading sportswear brands.The global company signed a 15-year lease in the second quarter for the first building at 303 Crossroads, a 1.7 million-square-foot facility with two industrial buildings fronting the northeast corner of the Loop 303 and Northern Parkway in Gl...

The latest company to sign a lease for 1 million square feet in the Valley is Germany-based Puma, one of the world's leading sportswear brands.

The global company signed a 15-year lease in the second quarter for the first building at 303 Crossroads, a 1.7 million-square-foot facility with two industrial buildings fronting the northeast corner of the Loop 303 and Northern Parkway in Glendale.

The company plans to use the building, which will be its first warehouse in Arizona, as a regional distribution facility for its stores and growing e-commerce business. Puma said it plans to bring more than 200 jobs to the area.

The building was developed by Chicago-based Cresset Real Estate Partners, a real estate investment firm, and Clarius Partners, a Chicago-based real estate investment and development management company.

Fred Regnery and Rob Martensen of Colliers International represented the tenant, while Pat Feeney and Daniel Callahan of CBRE Group Inc. represented the building.

The first building at 303 Crossroads, which will total more than 1 million square feet and house Puma's facility, is expected to be completed by the fourth quarter of this year, when Puma will occupy the space.

The building was the second warehouse project completed through the Cresset Real Estate Logistics Fund I, which was created about a year ago and has $250 million in commitments to develop nine warehouses, according to the company, which recently launched another logistics fund.

Dominic DeRose, director of investments for Cresset Real Estate Partners, said Puma signed the lease relatively quickly to accommodate its growth.

"They needed more space," DeRose said. "The timing matched up very well with our delivery schedule and their need, so we're very happy to have the lease signed roughly halfway through construction."

The company started looking for a building in the Phoenix area in the first quarter of this year and had signed a lease for 303 Crossroads by the second quarter, Cresset said. The developer plans to start construction on the second building at 303 Crossroads later this year.

"The tenants are still attracted to Phoenix for a variety of reasons, the population growth, having more products close to people, the general regional growth," DeRose said. "The business environment is very strong, so Phoenix is certainly a targeted market for us and a place where we want to keep investing because of all those factors, particularly in logistics."

Puma designs, develops, sells and markets footwear, apparel and accessories and offers performance and sport-inspired lifestyle products in football, running, basketball, golf and motorsports. Puma Group owns Puma, Cobra Gold and Stichd and distributes products across more than 120 countries. It also has about 16,000 employees worldwide.

In the first quarter of this year, Puma said it had stronger-than expected results due to high demand from retailers and consumers. Puma said its earnings before interest and taxes rose 27% to $208 million, or 196 million euros, in the first three months of this year compared to a forecast of 181 million euros, Reuters reported.

"We are thrilled to collaborate and partner with industry leading tenants, such as Puma, to meet their growing business demands through expansion of their business footprint in the Valley," said Mark Balcius, senior vice president for Clarius Partners, in a statement.

The Phoenix metro was recently named one of the top five industrial markets to watch in the U.S. by Cushman & Wakefield alongside Nashville; Columbus, Ohio; Salt Lake City; and Savannah, Georgia.

The report said Phoenix has emerged as one of the fastest-growing industrial markets with more than 57 million square feet of leasing, or 51 million square feet of absorption, from 2019 to 2021. Developers also completed nearly 40 million square feet of new industrial space over that time, while another 33 million square feet is underway as of Q1 2022.

The metro area's proximity to West Coast markets and ports is an attractive alternative for companies over places like Los Angeles, the report said, adding that rents are less expensive with more space options in the Valley. In the first quarter of this year in Mesa, Lowe's leased 1.2 million square feet and Amazon signed a lease for 1.1 million square feet.

GLENDALE, Ariz. — The demand for affordable housing is ramping up in the Valley. State experts say Arizona is short hundreds of thousands of units and the struggle is intensifying.

One year ago, Arizona housing director Tom Simplot, said Arizona was 250,000 units short of the needs across the state.

“We now know with the influx of new residents and the escalating number grown to 270,000 units that we need across Arizona,” Simplot said. Most of the demand is in Maricopa County.

The new state housing tax credit program is being used to support developers in financing part of their project costs. It was signed into law by Gov. Doug Ducey in 2021. The legislation opens up $4 million every year for four years, which could be used to leverage up to $160 million to build affordable homes.

Gorman and Company is the first developer to receive state housing tax credits from the Arizona department of housing. They’re using it to turn an empty 13-acre lot near 67th Ave. and Glendale, into hundreds of new affordable housing units, said company president & CEO, Brian Swanton.

“It’s going to be a very high quality affordable housing development here in Glendale," Swanton said. The development will be called Centerline on Glendale, and will house more than 350 affordable units. Total development will cost more than $90 million. The company received $2 million state housing tax credit dollars for part of the project.

“It incentives private corporations who have tax liability in the state to reinvest their tax liability into affordable housing production," Swanton said. "It’s a great way to get private activity involved in solving a very complex issue which is the lack of affordable housing.”

This new workforce housing will be open to households earning at or below 60-percent of the county-wide median income. Swanton said it will target families earning less than $50,000 per year.

Swanton estimates it'll take about two years for the project to be finished because of labor and supply chain shortages. It also includes plans for a special commercial kitchen on site for up to 100 entrepreneurs and aspiring chefs to prepare and serve food out in the community.
