SkySong, The ASU Scottsdale Innovation CenterÂ prides itself onÂ being everything anyone could want in a place to locate theirÂ innovative and growing business. But sometimes, the moreÂ than 50 companies andÂ 1,000 employees want a little bit of the outside world as well.
So,Â to enhance the sense of community and interaction at the core of the project,Â the SkySong team has launchedÂ two exciting features for the enjoyment ofÂ current tenants and employees, as well as the nearby neighborhood.
TheÂ first is a Food Truck Thursday, held on the fourth Thursday of each month nextÂ to the new SkySong Park andÂ featuring some of the Valleyâ€™s finest food truckÂ vendors serving a wide variety of cuisine. The Food Trucks began servingÂ SkySong last year, and have been extremely busy and well-received.
AndÂ second, SkySong has begun offering a First Friday Trolley service on the firstÂ Friday of each month. TheÂ service, which began on February 7, runs from 11 a.m.Â to approximately 1:30 p.m. from SkySong into Old TownÂ Scottsdale, providing anÂ opportunity for SkySong employees, residents of the apartments and nearbyÂ neighbors to enjoyÂ the dining and shopping opportunities Old Town provides.
Itâ€™sÂ one of a number of steps being taken at SkySong to enhance the SkySongÂ experience and create moreÂ connectivity in the project.
â€œOurÂ tenants and employees have told us that they want SkySong to bring togetherÂ people from differentÂ industries, companies and even cultures in a connectedÂ environment,â€ said Sharon Harper, President & CEO of PlazaÂ Companies, theÂ master developer of the project. â€œAs SkySong continues to grow and with theÂ opening of SkySong 3 onÂ the horizon, we are pleased to provide ways for thoseÂ working at SkySong to enjoy their experience even more, andÂ increase theÂ interaction and innovation at the project in the process.â€
