Shopping Mall · Hidden Gem · Shopping
Desert Ridge Marketplace is a super-regional shopping mall located just off the Loop 101 and Tatum Boulevard in North Phoenix, Arizona. It was built by Vestar Development Co. and opened in December 2001. The mall has a gross leasable area of 1.2 million square feet (111,000 m²). The mall was targeted at upscale residents of the north East Valley, and of Scottsdale, a five-minute drive from the mall via the freeway.
The CityNorth development adjoins and connects to the Desert Ridge development, and offers a much more upscale collection of stores than what is currently offered at Desert Ridge to cater to the affluent population of northern Phoenix and Scottsdale.
The mall was revamped in 2017 with a repaint of stores, a fountain installed in the entrance and a new, modern logo.

  • This is a great mall/marketplace. I hadn't been there in a while and I was a bit disappointed that there was not an internal shuttle service like they once had. It made shopping SO MUCH easier!
