Walt Brown, founder and CEO of Diversified Partners, a Scottsdale-based real estate brokerage and development company, announced the groundbreaking of its large, prime parcel known as En Fuego, at 91st and Glendale avenues.

The groundbreaking ceremony at 9100 N. Zanjero Blvd. in Glendale was attended by a large crowd, which included Glendale City Major Jerry Weiers and Glendale Chamber of Commerce President Robert Heidt, among others. With En Fuego hard hats and bright red shovels, a big group posed in front of some of the construction equipment for the groundbreaking shot.

Across the street from the Westgate development, En Fuego is in excellent company with the Tangier outlets around the corner and Cabela’s next door. For Phase I, pads, shops and land are available at En Fuego, ranging from 3,000 square feet to 15,600 square feet/1.33-acre lot. Starbucks, Raising Cane’s, Barro’s Pizza, Biscuits Cafe and Jack in the Box are already committed. Phase II will offer 8.32 acres for office, flex or entertainment use.

“This is a big deal for the City of Glendale. It’s a densely populated area with over 100,000 residents within three miles, not to mention the nearly 25,000 employees also within three miles,” said Weiers. “This is an excellent partnership and we are fully committed to supporting En Fuego for the long haul.”

“We came up with the name En Fuego, which means fire in Spanish,” said Brown. “The iconic fire circle we designed represents the complex as a center or whole with a flare of the fire elements incorporated throughout the complex, using high-contrasting vibrant colors to engage the consumer.”
