SkySong, The ASU Scottsdale Innovation Center prides itself on being everything anyone could want in a place to locate their innovative and growing business. But sometimes, the more than 50 companies and 1,000 employees want a little bit of the outside world as well.
So, to enhance the sense of community and interaction at the core of the project, the SkySong team has launched two exciting features for the enjoyment of current tenants and employees, as well as the nearby neighborhood.
The first is a Food Truck Thursday, held on the fourth Thursday of each month next to the new SkySong Park and featuring some of the Valley’s finest food truck vendors serving a wide variety of cuisine. The Food Trucks began serving SkySong last year, and have been extremely busy and well-received.
And second, SkySong has begun offering a First Friday Trolley service on the first Friday of each month. The service, which began on February 7, runs from 11 a.m. to approximately 1:30 p.m. from SkySong into Old Town Scottsdale, providing an opportunity for SkySong employees, residents of the apartments and nearby neighbors to enjoy the dining and shopping opportunities Old Town provides.
It’s one of a number of steps being taken at SkySong to enhance the SkySong experience and create more connectivity in the project.
“Our tenants and employees have told us that they want SkySong to bring together people from different industries, companies and even cultures in a connected environment,” said Sharon Harper, President & CEO of Plaza Companies, the master developer of the project. “As SkySong continues to grow and with the opening of SkySong 3 on the horizon, we are pleased to provide ways for those working at SkySong to enjoy their experience even more, and increase the interaction and innovation at the project in the process.”
