Representation included preparing the purchase agreements to acquire the land, infrastructure development agreement with Simon Property Group to construct the infrastructure improvements for the project (including a new 400,000 square foot factory outlet mall), the covenants, conditions and restrictions governing the operation, maintenance and use of the project, and a development agreement with the Town of Marana, which will allow the developer to recoup the infrastructure improvement costs from the sales tax generated from the project. Representation also included formation of the limited liability companies and preparation of the operating agreements for the developer and its investors.
  • Represented the master developer in connection with the redevelopment of the Mountain Shadows Resort.

  • Represents a developer in connection with the first public-private project (i.e., P3 Project) in the State of Arizona with the City of Flagstaff and the Arizona Department of Transportation (“ADOT”). The project involves the following stepped transaction: (i) the developer will acquire an existing movie theater site, subject to the developer relocating the operator of the movie theater onto a parcel of land ground leased from the Arizona State Land Department; (ii) following the acquisition of the theater site, the developer, in collaboration with ADOT, will design and construct new operational facilities on the theater site for use by ADOT; (iii) the developer will then convey the new operational facilities to ADOT in exchange for a parcel of land owned by ADOT and the City of Flagstaff, which is located at the entrance of the Northern Arizona University campus; and (iv) the developer, together with a leading student housing developer, will construct on the exchange parcel a high-rise student campus housing facility and a retail shopping center. Representation includes preparation of a number of complex purchase and sale agreements, development agreements, implementation agreements and public-private agreements with the City of Flagstaff and ADOT, as well as operating agreements governing the operation of the new joint venture partnership between the developer and the student housing developer.
