A Macerich Development in partnership with WDP Partners and RED Development

Vision: Timeline


As early as 2002, the landowners, the developers and the City of Surprise assembled the vision for more than 3300 acres on the boundary of Surprise.


Westcor publicly announced the site as a regional mall destination.


The name Prasada was unveiled, along with the vision for the project.


Annexation and rezoning completed. Master-planning and detailed engineering design continued.


Initial infrastructure construction started in April with preliminary site conditioning and drilling the first of up to six new water wells to serve the area. Grading of existing farm fields and installing initial phases of sanitary sewer followed in late summer. A full-time construction team, trailers and equipment assembled on site in October near the southwest corner of the Sarival Avenue and Waddell Road intersection.

By the end of 2007, Prasada had installed over three miles of sewer line, moved over half a million cubic yards of dirt, completed drilling and testing of the first two potable water wells, graded the future Sarival Avenue alignment north of Cactus Road and selected contractors for the first phase drainage structures, water lines and water booster pump station.


The next phase of infrastructure continued and included building more than five miles of roads, sewer lines, water lines, drainage channels and associated roadside improvements, such as sidewalks, landscaping, traffic signals, street lights, signage and striping. The first phase of the water booster station was also constructed. The first phase of 303 AutoShow at Prasada was opened with the introduction of Sands Chevrolet.

Now to 2009

By the end of 2009, Prasada completed the first phase infrastructure improvements. However, it could take more than ten years to fully develop and build out the remaining infrastructure improvements as projects come to market.


In Spring 2010, the second phase of 303 AutoShow celebrated the ground breaking of Sands Kia, which opened Fall 2010. Walmart opened in Spring 2012, marking the first phase of the Walmart Power Center.

The project team will be updating the project timeline as information is available.
