SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. – Apple computer fans might want to start their upcoming weekend early by stopping by the computer company’s first store in Scottsdale and largest in Arizona.

The new store opens at 6 p.m. June 12 at Scottsdale Quarter, an innovative retail district at Scottsdale Road and Greenway-Hayden Loop. The new retail store at 15169 N. Scottsdale Road will be Apple’s first Arizona store to offer Pro Labs, which involves free training on Apple’s professional creative applications for digital photography, music production and video editing.

Several of the retail center’s tenants opened March 26 across Scottsdale Road from Kierland Commons. The first tenants include two home furnishing stores, West Elm and Williams-Sonoma Home. Future phases will be opened in response to retail and office market demands.

Scottsdale Quarter’s mixed-use design includes retailers on the ground floor of two parking garages. In its other buildings, office space is above retailers. The project’s design offers 370,000 square feet for retailers and restaurants; 36,000 square feet for entertainment, such as theaters; and 203,000 square feet for offices.

Scottsdale Quarter’s developer is Glimcher Realty Trust. Partners are Vanguard City Home and The Wolff Co. The architect is Nelsen Architects. Construction manager is Whiting-Turner. Leasing is coordinated by CB Richard Ellis.
