Scottsdale Quarter

Scottsdale, Arizona

Monumental experience: the quad at the Quarter

The Quad is the centerpiece of Scottsdale Quarter, a 28-acre mixed-use development, that has become the public space for the city. At 125’ wide and nearly 400’ long, this space is defined by the continuous palm grove that has an interactive water feature, outdoor dining, lawn areas and public art underneath this soft green shaded roof. It’s become the place for experiences, ranging from watching children frolic in the water feature to large catered events for corporate events. It’s become the place where experiences are made.
