The History

THE HISTORY OF UPTOWN

Created by Del Webb, the legendary developer behind Sun City and the legendary Flamingo Las Vegas resort, Uptown Plaza was an instant Valley landmark when it opened on September 25, 1955. As the first shopping center outside of downtown Phoenix, Uptown Plaza included cutting-edge amenities such as complimentary on-site parking, sleek air-conditioned and glass-fronted retail stores, and neon-lit cursive signage above each store that stayed lit until 11 pm nightly.

Original tenants include Piggly-Wiggly supermarket, Bostrom’s department store, Jerand’s of Arizona fine fashions and Porters apparel, as well as restaurants such as the mid-century modern gem, Helsing’s Coffee Shop, and the super-swank fine dining establishment, Navarre’s.
