Diversified Partners hosted a groundbreaking ceremony for its Shops at 75th development project, which is found at 7501 W. Bethany Home Road in Glendale.
The groundbreaking ceremony, which was held earlier this month, was attended by local dignitaries including Glendale Vice Mayor Joyce Clark; Councilman Ian Hugh and other Glendale city staff and neighbors, among others.
The four-pad, 3.71-acre development has already attracted a variety of tenants, including Dutch Bros. Coffee, Cali Tacos Restaurant and BeBa Nails & Spa, according to a press release.
“I’ve worked with Walt Brown Jr. and Diversified Partners for several years, and they have always been sensitive to my requests in an effort to make every development better,” said Glendale Vice Mayor Clark, in a prepared statement.
“I’m delighted to be here today to welcome yet another project by this amazing group. This development shows that Glendale is not just focused on the new frontier, the 303 and Westgate, but our focus is on making sure our infill partners are taken care of as well.”
The ownership group comprises NRM Group in conjunction with Diversified Partners. MCG Architecture will serve as the project’s architecture firm, Foursite Development will lead construction management and BPR Companies will serve as the general contractor on the project.
“I am so proud and so honored for this project. I cannot thank the Council Members and Planning Commissioners [of the City of Glendale] enough for their help on this project,” Rafat “AJ” Abdeljaber, CEO of NRM Group LLC.
“Today’s groundbreaking ceremony signifies the culmination of a visionary partnership between NRM Group and Diversified Partners. Our commitment to growth and innovation, supported by the staff of the city of Glendale and Vice Mayor Joyce Clark, has brought us to this joyous day. With gratitude to the tireless efforts of individuals like Alex Lerma, Tabitha Perry and the City of Glendale staff, this project embodies collaboration and community spirit.”
