What is Prasada?

Prasada is a new and refreshing master-planned development where working, shopping and entertaining will blend seamlessly in the community of Surprise. More than 1,200 acres will be dedicated to neighborhood and power centers, hospital and medical campus, an autoplex and other complementary retail and commercial uses. Back to Top

Why is this called Prasada?

A unique relationship between Suburban Land Reserve, Macerich, WDP Partners and RED Development, Prasada presents a unique opportunity for a master-planned development to be a unified collaboration from the start, beginning with the name and vision. To do this, the developers brought together teams representing all aspects of the project to consider all of the factors at play - from the needs of area residents to the city's vision of the future.

The Prasada name is derived from the Sanskrit word meaning "grace" or "peace." The vision is to create a place where serenity is a way of life, and this principle serves as a guide for all elements of the community's design - from architecture and landscaping to amenities and activities. Prasada will create a sanctuary for the senses and be a dynamic community that provides renewal for residents and stakeholders alike. Using water's characteristics as a guide, Prasada's community plan will encourage movement and activity with its trails and open spaces, while various design elements, such as architecture and streetscapes, will create an atmosphere of serenity and refreshment.

What is included in Prasada, besides a mall?

Which stores and restaurants will be at Prasada?

We have already announced the Target Center and Walmart Center, the two main power centers, opening as early as Fall 2012. We will be announcing additional shops and restaurants as we get closer to the opening date, so please be sure to check back for updates, or register for the email signup to receive special bulletins.

Can you tell me about the type of stores I can expect at Prasada?

West Valley residents have shared with us that they want a varied mix of shops that will offer something for everybody — including everyday necessities and items for special events. With a power center and regional shopping center, you can expect to find a diverse range of shopping and dining offerings that appeal to all age ranges — from young families to active adults — in the form of large-format retailers, department stores, specialty boutiques, restaurants and cafes, entertainment venues and more. Back to Top

When will Prasada open?

We take a market-driven approach and want to make sure the right mix of stores and restaurants open at the correct time to serve current and future residents. Prasada will be developed and opened in phases. The first dealership at the 303AutoShow — Sands Chevrolet — opened in Fall 2008. Based on market research and feedback from retailers, the phased openings will continue with the power centers in Fall 2012. We have not yet announced timing for the regional mall or other commercial developments at Prasada. Back to Top

I've heard that Prasada will be like the Mall of America. Is that true?

No. While the acreage of the project is considerably larger than regional mall sites, this development will include a mixed-use regional shopping destination designed to serve the needs of the West Valley. The typical size of a regional center in Arizona is 1.3 million square feet; the Mall of America is 4.2 million square feet and serves a much larger demographic market. Back to Top
