Hi,

I would like to start a business but it requires that there be a lot of walkthough traffic for at least 6 hours a day. Besides the malls, does anyone know in phoenix any other locations?

Thanks

What kind of business? Look into downtown; Roosevelt Row, Arizona Center, soon Cityscape...then look into Biltmore, Melrose, along the light rail line and if you are looking at other areas of town; Westgate in Glendale, Mill Ave in Tempe, The District at Desert Ridge, Old Town Scottsdale, etc etc.

Around ASU in Tempe is probably the best. Old Town Scottsdale has a lot of foot traffic, and maybe between the ballpark and downtown ASU (nearer light rail) in Phoenix. Actually, I'm not sure there's a ton of foot traffic anywhere in downtown Phoenix, but that would be your best bet. The area around ASU is absoulultely nuts with foot traffic this time of year, but obviously drops off during winter breaks and summer.

I live downtown and there is a ton of foot traffic especially in the Roosevelt area, HOWEVER, beware being in the heart of the business district after banker's hours! Locate near attractions, restaurants, etc and generally (for now) avoid renting in the middle of the large high-rises as those streets are pretty clear after hours. Nearer the hotels, Arizona Center, Roosevelt Row, Evans-Churchill,etc is definitely where you want to be if you decide on downtown. Biltmore is very upscale and thus rents will be too so depending on your business you may want to avoid. Tempe like asufan said is crazy business during the school year and it dies down in the summer but is still there.

Try Camelback East area ... especially near the intersection of 24th Street & Camelback. That area is a business hub, as well as a shopping/dining mecca. Biltmore Fashion Park and the Esplanade across the street attract many people walking back and forth. The nice thing about this area is it is both auto centric and walkable.

Very true; but at the same time these leasers are very picky, expensive, and restrictive. They might not be the best location for somewhat starting a new business or has little knowledge of what they will be making versus expenses.

Downtown Glendale is a really neat little town that feels more like a village than part of Phoenix. There's a lot of foot traffic, many mom and pop stores, and a friendly feel to it. Go check it out. Old Town Scottsdale gets foot traffic, too, as does Downtown Phx. More and more little locales are trying to build that up.
