A new mixed-use project with apartments and 100,000 square feet of commercial space is being proposed for a growing area in the northwest part of metro Phoenix in Surprise.

Called Desert Arroyo, the development has been planned for about 42 acres at the northeast corner of 163rd Avenue and Jomax Road nearby the Desert Oasis and Asante communities north of Grand Avenue.

Scottsdale-based EcoVista Development LLC, through law firm Beus Gilbert McGroder PLLC, applied to rezone the site with the city of Surprise. This would create a planned area development and change a portion of the site from rural residential to community commercial uses.

The city of Surprise planning commission is scheduled to recommend the application for approval or denial at its Feb. 15 meeting.

The overall development is slated to include a maximum of 475 residential units across nearly 30 acres between two projects called The Villages at Desert Arroyo east and west.

The commercial component, called The Shops at Desert Arroyo, will include restaurant, retail and office space totaling about 100,000 square feet, according to a site plan submitted to the city.

Americana Outdoors has closed on a $16 million industrial building in Mesa that will spearhead the company's growth in Arizona and bring 75 new jobs to the state.

Plans call for transferring its sports division — PW Athletic and LA Steelcraft — to the site near Signal Butte and Germann roads from a smaller location in Mesa.

The 140,000-square-foot industrial building and 19.302 acres were purchased from Trammell Crow Co. and joint venture partner CBRE Investment Management on behalf of a separate client.

The property is part of a 192-acre site that previously was part of the large ZF/TRW manufacturing campus.

Trammell Crow had purchased the development site last April in an effort to provide build-to-suit solutions for corporate users.

Jackie Orcutt and Jonathan Teeter with CBRE represented Trammell Crow in the Americana transaction, which was brokered by John Werstler of CBRE.

A division of Americana Outdoors, Americana Industrial Coatings, will expand into the Arizona market at this industrial building, which is just southeast of Mesa Gateway Airport. Plans call for operating two powder coating lines, a liquid batch line and other operations, with the goal of offering metal finishing services to local industrial and metal manufacturers, said Gerald Purcell, Americana Outdoors president.

The family-owned company is the first to purchase in this emerging industrial park, he said.

He said his team has submitted plans for improvements and restoration of utilities that need to be completed before operations can begin on the site.

• Luxury home products company Porcelanosa Group is making its Arizona debut with a showroom in Scottsdale.

Founded in Castellón, Spain, in 1973, Porcelanosa Group is a European manufacturer and distributor of luxury tile, kitchen and bath products.

Porcelanosa is celebrating the grand opening of its new 2,800-square-foot showroom at 4501 N. Scottsdale Road, Suite 102, on Feb. 29. Scheduled from 5:30 p.m. to 9 p.m., the event requires registration.

The company has a presence in 137 countries, with 40 showrooms and six distribution centers spanning more than 5 million square feet in the United States.

Owen Bonifilio, Arizona sales manager, said this high-traffic location in the Old Town Scottsdale design area offers high visibility in a unique building.

The showroom employs three people, he said, and all hiring has been completed.

The Counter, a new concept from Valley-based breakfast and lunch spot Morning Squeeze has opened in Tempe.

The Counter is housed in Morning Squeeze’s new catering commissary that opened at 1725 W. University Dr. in Tempe last year.

Morning Squeeze took over an existing diner space in an industrial park in Tempe to launch its new eatery concept.

“We’re really excited to adapt the service and quality of food Morning Squeeze is known for in a way that fits the needs of this active part of the Tempe community,” Carlos Reason, Morning Squeeze’s catering director, said in a statement. “We’ve already got regular guests that enjoy the comfortable and affordable breakfast and lunch we offer.”

• Popular Arizona-centric apparel company State Forty Eight has expanded its presence in the Valley by opening its fourth retail location.

The new store is in a in 865-square-foot space at 2470 W. Happy Valley Road in Phoenix, in the Shops at Norterra retail center, owned by YAM Properties. State Forty Eight announced the lease in August 2023.

“As State Forty Eight continues to grow, our goal is to create accessible touchpoints for the community to connect with our brand,” said Mike Spangenberg, the CEO and co-founder of State Forty Eight, in a statement. “The opening of our Norterra store marks another milestone in this journey, allowing us to better serve our customers and share our love for Arizona with every corner of the city.”

• Phoenix Premium Outlets, an outdoor outlet shopping mall in Chandler off I-10 and south of the Loop 202, has signed a lease with Golf Apparel Shop.

The new store offers golf and tennis attire from major brands like Perry Ellis International, Original Penguin, PGA TOUR Apparel, Jack Nicklaus and Callaway Apparel.

• Scottsdale Mental Health & Wellness Institute has rebranded and opened clinic in Glendale.

Now called Synergy: Mental Health & Wellness Integrated, the practice offers outpatient mental and physical health services.

The new 2,971-square-foot Glendale facility at 6120 W. Bell Road, adds to locations in Scottsdale and Tempe. The facility employs eight people, while the Scottsdale and Tempe facilities employ 41 workers.

Plans call for further expansions across Arizona and the nation.

Sprouts Farmers Market, the Phoenix-based specialty grocery, has signed a lease to open its second store in Yuma.

The new Yuma Foothills Sprouts store will be located in a 23,228-square-foot store at the northeast corner of Fortuna Road and Interstate 8.

Regan Amato from JLL's Phoenix office represented Sprouts in the lease transaction. Thomas J. Pancrazi of A.T. Pancrazi Real Estate Services represented the project developer, The Spencer Companies.

“Yuma has a young and growing population that continues to expand thanks to its thriving agricultural and military economies, and an emerging manufacturing sector,” Amato said in a statement. “That makes this southwestern Arizona town a prime location for Sprouts to expand its retail footprint.”

Besides Sprouts, the new center being developed by Spencer Cos. will have 11,250 square feet of attached, in-line retail space that could be used for restaurants, retail or services.

The timeline for when construction on the Sprouts location will start and when the store will open are still unclear.

• Texas-based NatureSweet, the largest vertically-integrated agricultural company in North America, has opened a $5 million greenhouse facility in Bonita, Arizona.

The facility, located in Graham County an hour east of Tucson, will bring about 250 agricultural jobs to the area in the next three years.

NatureSweet, known for its snacking tomatoes, has started planting and growing produce at its new location.

“Choosing Arizona to plant our seeds is more than just a strategic decision, it’s a commitment to innovation, collaboration, and the incredible opportunities that the state offers,” said Rodolfo Spielmann, president & CEO of NatureSweet, in a statement. “We look forward to contributing to the area’s dynamic landscape and growing a successful future together. We are just starting.”

NatureSweet will start operations by growing D'Vines, its cherry tomatoes that are harvested and packaged on-the-vine and then expand to other conventional and organic products across nearly 50 acres, the Arizona Commerce Authority said in a recent announcement.

Cocina Chiwas and Glai Baan restaurants in Phoenix made USA TODAY’s list of best restaurants in the country.

The USA TODAY Restaurants of the Year 2024 list features 47 restaurants from fine-dining establishments to counter-service seafood shacks. USA TODAY Network food journalists from across the country pooled their expertise to select the list, which includes the places they know, love and recommend.

Cocina Chiwas was selected for its light interior and attention to details, from the handmade plates and bowls and tables to the northern Mexican cuisine.

“It’s an amazing feeling. We appreciate all the love. You know, we are trying to really put Arizona on the map as much as we can with our food and showcase the regionality of the Northern part of Mexico," Hernandez told The Arizona Republic. "Mexico is close to here, but may as well be a different world, and to just be successful in creating something that is very near and dear to our heart, we feel very blessed. ... It’s amazing to receive validation."

Glai Baan was chosen because of its cozy vibe with string lights inside and out, a charming patio along with flavorful Thai street food and inventive cocktails.

Chef and owner Pornsupak “Cat” Bunnag was pleasantly surprised when she heard the news. "Oh really? Thank you!" she said.

Kevin Durant scored 25 points to lead the Phoenix Suns past the Detroit Pistons 116-100.

The victory came despite the Suns losing guard Devin Booker in the sixth minute on Wednesday after he was ejected for two quick technical fouls.

Saben Lee added a season-high 16 points for the Suns, and matched his career best with four steals.

Simone Fontecchio's 18 points could not help end Detroit's poor run of form as they fell to a third straight defeat.

Durant scored 12 points in the first half as the Suns took a commanding 70-41 lead.

Elsewhere, the Golden State Warriors lost 130-125 to the LA Clippers despite Steph Curry's 41-point haul which saw him become the first player in NBA history to score at least seven three-pointers in four consecutive games.

The Clippers overturned a 14-point deficit as James Harden finished with 26 points, eight rebounds and seven assists, while Paul George added 24 points.

The Clippers are top of the Western Conference Pacific while the Warriors remain at the bottom of that division.

The Brooklyn Nets were beaten for a fifth time in six games in a 136-86 thrashing by the Boston Celtics.

Jayson Tatum scored 20 points, dished out nine assists, and claimed seven rebounds for the Celtics, who beat the Nets on consecutive nights.

LeBron James was rested as the LA Lakers beat the Utah Jazz 138-122. Anthony Davis scored 37 points and 15 rebounds, while Rui Hachimura added a career-high 36 points.

The Sacramento Kings fought back from a 16-point deficit in the second half to beat the Denver Nuggets 102-98.

It is the Kings' second victory over the Nuggets in the space of five days and De'Aaron Fox starred with 30 points, eight assists, and eight rebounds.

Donovan Mitchell scored 30 points to help the Cleveland Cavaliers edge past the Chicago Bulls 108-105, including a crucial free throw with 44 seconds remaining as the Bulls wasted a 17-point lead.

Kyrie Irving's 34 points and Luka Doncic's 27 points led the Dallas Mavericks to a 116-93 victory over the San Antonio Spurs.

Doncic also had nine rebounds and eight assists in 31 minutes but had to leave the court in the fourth quarter with a neck injury.

The Orlando Magic beat the New York Knicks 118-100 with Paolo Banchero scoring 36 points and Franz Wagner adding 21.

Jalen Brunson starred for the injury-hit Knicks - who were missing six players including Julius Randle and Bojan Bogdanovic - with 33 points and six assists.

Bam Adebayo's 23 points and 14 rebounds helped the Miami Heat beat the Philadelphia 76ers 109-104 to maintain their place at the top of the Eastern Conference Southeast.

The Indiana Pacers narrowly beat the Toronto Raptors 127-125, as Tyrese Haliburton scored 21 points and 12 assists, and Pascal Siakam added 23 against his former team.

Meanwhile, the Charlotte Hornets beat the Atlanta Hawks 122-99 for a third straight victory - their best winning streak of the season.

The Memphis Grizzlies ended a nine-game losing streak with a 121-113 win over the Houston Rockets while Deni Avdija's career-best 43 points led the New Orleans Pelicans to a 133-126 win over the Washington Wizards.

Chef behind Otro Cafe and Gallo Blanco to open new Phoenix restaurant. Everything to know

Bahar AnooshahrThe owners of Otro Cafe and ...

The owners of Otro Cafe and Gallo Blanco are opening a new restaurant in the Central Phoenix space that housed Southern Rail, which closed in December after nearly a decade.

The new concept from chef Doug Robson is global comfort food with Arizona ingredients, marking a departure from his two popular Mexican restaurants. It's projected to open in May 2024, next to Changing Hands Bookstore.

Robson has a process when he creates a restaurant: First, he acquires the space, then sits in it to get a feel for what it's meant to become and how the cuisine would complement the neighborhood around it.

Why Doug Robson is branching out from Mexican food

"I was born in Mexico, my dad is English and mom is French Vietnamese," Robson said. "While Mexican food is in my DNA, I wanted to create other types of food with regional and global ingredients."

The group is still deciding on a name but gravitating toward Tesota, Spanish for desert ironwood, which Robson felt was a meaningful representation of his Arizona-born company.

Aside from owners Robson and his wife Georgia, the new restaurant's team includes chef Jared Porter, who worked with Robson at LGO, and Ashli Galbreath, who will manage the front of the house.

What's on the menu at Tesota

The menu will have a selection of raw bar items, like oysters on half shell, shrimp, ceviche, crudos, as well as wood-fired pizzettas, chaufa, noodles and rotisserie meats from porchetta to lamb to chicken. He plans to add a complementary vegetarian menu as well.

Happy hour provisions consist of tinned fish, pates and oysters, "something to nosh with bread," Robson said.

Expect weekend brunch and special occasion wines

With a wine cellar, the team is also looking to offer everyday and special occasion wines.

The restaurant will be open for lunch and dinner daily, with brunch on Saturdays and Sundays.

"Our job as chefs is to explore cuisine, be respectful of the ingredient and bring different types of food to the American plate," Robson said. "We are looking forward to introducing our third restaurant with some new ideas that hopefully people will enjoy."

Tesota in Phoenix

Hours: 11 a.m.- 9 p.m. Monday to Thursday; 11 a.m.-10 p.m. Friday and Saturday.

Expected opening date: May 2024.

Details: 300 W. Camelback Road, #2, Phoenix.

Devin Booker ejected six minutes into game with incredibly quick hook

The referee core denied it postgame, but it was clear to anyone with eyes that in the wake of the Pistons’ Isaiah Stewart punching the Suns’ Drew Eubanks pregame, they were calling this game tight to keep it under control.

It was too tight as Devin Booker was ejected six minutes into the game.

Postgame, Crew Chief Karl Lane said Booker got his first technical foul for excessive complaining after being warned. Then, before play was resumed, Booker was ejected, and here's the video.

Devin Booker got his 2nd tech and got ejected in the first quarterpic.twitter.com/dKPZdRjHGD

Um... that's not demonstrative. That's not showing up the referees. That's thin-skinned officials. Lane was asked about the ejection by a pool reporter.

LANE: "The second technical foul was for disparaging remarks he made towards a game official, and then he was ejected for the second one."

QUESTION: Was it the escalation that warranted the ejection early in the game?

LANE: "The comment that he made met our standards and warranted the technical foul, the second technical foul which led to the ejection."

Suns coach Frank Vogel picked up a technical foul for arguing the ejection. These officials handed out technicals like Halloween candy.

Lane also denied that the referees were not calling the game tighter because of the pregame incident. This is either disingenuous or they were just calling the game extremely tight for no reason, which is just as bad.

It's hard to be a referee and be constantly criticized by players, fans and coaches. There needs to be some sympathy for that and an understanding there are lines not to be crossed. However, there seem to be some officials who enjoy a sense of power a little too much and are quick to throw technicals at players a little too quickly. The officials seem to get wound up too fast. That can lead to one of the players people pay to see being ejected less than six minutes into a game for something that did not warrant it, and that is just bad for the game.

The Suns went on to win 116-100 behind 25 points from Kevin Durant.
