The Yard was featured in "PTK"!
The Yard at the Farmer’s Art District in Tempe, Arizona was featured in “People & Projects To Know (PTK) in Commercial Real Estate”. The Yard boasts an open gathering space outside plus 25,000 square feet of indoor space occupied mainly by restaurants. “It’s the largest concept Sam Fox has worked on and the largest project Common Bond Development Group has completed.”
FM GROUP INC provided Architectural Design Services for the Yard including Schematic Design and Planning approvals. (The Executive Architect of Record is Nelsen Partners.) This project was a redevelopment of the former Farmer Arts compound in Tempe into a retail and restaurant venue. The existing 1-acre property included three existing metal shed buildings and one masonry block/wooden trussed rood building which was redeveloped with new on-site parking, fire lane and valet drop-off, new building entrances, a covered outdoor venue area and off-site streetscape along Farmer Avenue.
