Why Casa Grande?
The new Lucid Motors plant is built and is beginning to manufacture cars. You can find numerous media reports about this; it's making news around the world and is certainly a big thing for this community. Please verify on your own, but we understand that both Attessa Motorsports and Dreamport Villages have taken additional steps to make their big projects realities. We also hear through the grapevine that the ambitious Phoenix Mart may not be completed. Following is what the city posted on their website at one point, which we cut and pasted (please go directly to their site for updates).
The City of Casa Grande is the southern-most city in the Phoenix Metropolitan area and is conveniently located midway between Phoenix and Tucson, approximately one hour from each city. The I-8, I-10, and Union Pacific Railroad run through the city of Casa Grande, and the I-8/I-10 interchange is located just south of the downtown corridor providing convenient access to three major freight routes. Over the past two years, Casa Grande has generated significant media attention at the national and international levels with development announcements by:
Lucid Motors (electric vehicle manufacturer)
Attesa Motorsports (a 2,300-acre development that will include two professional racing venues)
Dreamport Villages (a 1,500-acre extreme sport themed amusement park)
Phoenixmart (a 1.5 million square foot international business-to-business sourcing center)
These four projects combined are projected to create over 30,000 jobs and represent over $5B in capital investment over the next 10 years. In addition, the Attesa Motorsports venue and the Dreamport Villages are expected to attract over 4 million visitors a year.
Casa Grande’s population has doubled since the year 2000, making it the largest city and tax base in Pinal County. Coupled with its rapidly growing economy and industrial sector, there has never been a better time to invest in Casa Grande!
