“This was an opportunity to share our vision and strengthen the industry connections that will revitalize Metrocenter,” said Carlyle Development’s Chief Operating Officer Warren Fink (lower left photo) 

“It is a turning point—the next step in our promise to make Metrocenter a fun, safe atmosphere where customers and tenants will thrive. Having the support of the Phoenix brokerage community, Phoenix Police and City Council is a welcome part of that process.”
