“The temple redevelopment project is a welcomed addition to downtown Mesa,” Mayor John Giles said about the Church's redevelopment project near the Mesa Arizona Temple. “We have many projects on tap that will help spark the revitalization of downtown, and this is one of them. I’m excited to see the new homes and businesses that will welcome people into the heart of Mesa.”
In an effort to protect and revitalize the area surrounding the Mesa Arizona Temple, which is currently closed for renovations, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints plans to begin construction this year on a redevelopment project to the west that includes residential and commercial development.
After years of planning in cooperation with city government and local development groups, officials revealed details for “Mesa and Main,” a new construction project on 4 ½ acres west of the temple along Mesa’s Main Street light rail corridor, between Mesa Drive and LeSueur.
