Inaugural 602 Day Celebration Dubbed a Success by Phoenix Leadership, Local Businesses and Communityhttps://www.investinphoenix.com/news/24Inaugural 602 Day Celebration Dubbed a Success by Phoenix Leadership, Local Businesses and Community<div class="ExternalClass42B6795D78464FA390530C61693D8F31"><p>On June 2, 2024, the City of Phoenix officially celebrated 602 Day for the first time. The City partnered with more than 100 local businesses and organizations to offer $6.02 deals and host events to celebrate the Phoenix community and honor 602 as the city's  most historically significant area code.</p><p>"I am thrilled to declare the first official 602 Day an incredible success," said Phoenix Mayor Kate Gallego. “Families got to enjoy iconic institutions at a discount, our local businesses benefitted from increased revenue, and community members came together to celebrate and show their Phoenix pride. We even honored talented mixologists by naming our City's <a href="http://www.phxcocktail.com/">first official cocktail.</a> I cannot wait for 602 Day 2025, and want to thank all of the amazing partners and City staff who made the day possible!"</p><p>The 602 Day promotions attracted both visitors and locals from around the Valley to Phoenix in support of shops, attractions and retailers. June typically marks the decline of the peak-season for many businesses in Phoenix, but by leveraging the 602 Day campaign, many businesses saw a significant increase in sales. Valley Coffee Company co-owner Donny Peper said that the 602 Day celebration exceeded their expectations, with 146 people ordering their 602 special and sales up 34% compared to the previous Sunday. “This significant boost is a testament to the strong community spirit here in Phoenix," he explained.</p><p>The more than 100 participating organizations offered a wide array of 602 Day discounts and experiences, including service providers – barber shops, dance studios, mechanics, and more – who found unique ways to participate and saw benefit in doing so. Marisol Bovo, owner of Loving Hands Healing Hands, a wellness company in north Phoenix said that she couldn't imagine how successful 602 would be for her business. “The event brought incredible exposure, resulting in numerous calls and four new clients booked! I'm deeply appreciative of the opportunity and the boost it has provided to my practice," she said.</p><p>Several staple Phoenix institutions rallied behind the city to celebrate 602 Day including the Arizona Diamondbacks, Arizona Science Center, Phoenix Art Museum, Phoenix Children's Museum, Arizona Rattlers, and more. “We were excited to see so many people enjoying all the Zoo has to offer, and know we saw families who have never been to the Zoo before. Kudos to the City of Phoenix for creating this incredible celebration of our community!" said Linda Hardwick, Vice President of Marketing, Communications and Events. She shared that the Phoenix Zoo welcomed 9,347 guests on the inaugural 602 Day – and with temperatures over 100 degrees, they would typically expect around 1,000 visitors on a summer day.</p><p>Many City of Phoenix Departments also found ways to celebrate the community for 602 Day. The Phoenix Fire Department distributed 602 smoke detectors to promote fire prevention safety, the Parks and Recreation Department offered free 602 day t-shirts and water safety tips at multiple City pools and the Phoenix Public Library created a 602 Day badge for the Summer Reading Program as well as had their Bookmobile out in the community on 602 Day.</p><p>Additionally, several City of Phoenix senior centers participated in the 602-themed celebrations. The Desert West Senior Center hosted a Memory Café session led by an instructor from the Phoenix Center for the Arts. Members were asked to design an image related to a 602-area memory. The Paradise Valley Senior Center created a mini-essay contest where participants shared their time in the 602 area code and their favorite 602 activities. <for Greenrope: Broll and images are available for media.></p><p>The City of Phoenix is excited to celebrate 602 Day again on June 2, 2025. Businesses and community members who would like to participate should check back at 602Day.com in spring 2025 for more information.​<br></p></div>Image collage of 2024 602 Day participantshttps://www.investinphoenix.com/Lists/News/Attachments/24/Newsroom_602Day_Success_June72024.png6/11/2024 3:34:37 PM
Adaptive Reuse Transforms The Monroe Street Abbey in Downtown Phoenixhttps://www.investinphoenix.com/news/23Adaptive Reuse Transforms The Monroe Street Abbey in Downtown Phoenix<div class="ExternalClass804377BB641B4DD09B0BCD20B49E6FB6"><p><strong>Phoenix, AZ</strong> - The historic Monroe Street Abbey has undergone a stunning transformation, a testament to the collaborative efforts of the City, the building's non-profit owner and the Jones Studio architects. Former Phoenix Mayor and Attorney General Terry Goddard and cur​​​​rent Phoenix Mayor Kate Gallego united in celebration of this significant achievement, breathing new life into this landmark building and fostering a sense of pride in our community.</p><p>Adding to its historical significance, the Monroe Street Abbey was selected to receive a 2024 Governor's Heritage Preservation Honor Award. On behalf of the State Historic Preservation Office and the Arizona Preservation Foundation, I wish to thank you for the contribution you have made to the preservation of Arizona's unique heritage. Winners selected for this year's awards will be honored at a special ceremony held in conjunction with the 2024 Arizona Historic Preservation Conference this month.</p><p>Originally built in the 1920s as the First Baptist Church, the Monroe Street Abbey holds a profound place in Phoenix's history. After its last church service in 1968, the building became a youth training center and then was slated for restoration when a tragic fire almost destroyed it. Shortly before the fire, it was placed on the National Register of Historic Places, a testament to our commitment to preserving our heritage for future generations.</p><p>Goddard expressed his excitement about seeing this project come to fruition, stating, "The Monroe Street Abbey is an important part of Phoenix's history, and it's wonderful to see it coming back to life." Mayor Kate Gallego shared her thoughts on the project: "The Abbey Downtown is a staple of our city's skyline and history, and I'm looking forward to seeing it transform into an incredible gathering and event space."</p><p>The project was a collaborative effort between Goddard and the Jones Studio architects. Their goal was to inject a contemporary amenities into the building while preserving its originality. This required careful planning and attention to detail to ensure the renovation stayed true to its historical roots.</p><p>"So much of this comes down to the passion of a property owner to work with an existing building, and this is a particularly unique building because so much of it was destroyed by a fire. The ability of this team to see the bones and see the potential is something to be celebrated" said Phoenix Historic Preservation Officer Helana Ruter.</p><p>The remodel of the Monroe Street Abbey involved working closely with Phoenix's Historic Preservation Office to ensure the building was preserved and restored properly. The result is a stunning blend of old and new, with modern touches enhancing the historic charm of this beloved landmark.</p><p>The Monroe Street Abbey now stands as a shining example of historic preservation and adaptive reuse. It not only serves as a reminder of Phoenix's past but also holds the promise of a vibrant future, providing a versatile space for community events and gatherings. The city is proud to have been part of this project and eagerly anticipates the ways it will continue to contribute to Phoenix's rich history.</p><p>For more information about the Monroe Street Abbey and its renovation, please visit <a href="/">investinphoenix.com</a> or the Phoenix Historic Preservation Office at <a href="https://www.phoenix.gov/">phoenix.gov​</a>​​.<br></p></div>Downtown Skyline looking toward southwest Phoenixhttps://www.investinphoenix.com/Lists/News/Attachments/23/2023-Skyline-SouthWest.jpg6/4/2024 9:08:46 PM
Taiwan Delegation to Explore Bioscience Innovation in Phoenixhttps://www.investinphoenix.com/news/22Taiwan Delegation to Explore Bioscience Innovation in Phoenix<div class="ExternalClassDEF305198F4843AAB4C6AF793CA674C7"><p style="text-align:center;"><em>Biotechnology wave to follow semiconductor industry as leaders from Taiwan expand conversations of collaboration and alliances in Phoenix in upcoming visit.</em><br></p><p>Phoenix, AZ - A delegation from Taiwan including officials, business and start-up founders, hospital leaders and other bioscience industry experts are visiting this week to experience first-hand the cutting-edge research and development being conducted in the field of bioscience and advanced medical technology in Phoenix. The visit is a result of Phoenix's Bioscience Healthcare Strategic Initiative under Mayor Kate Gallego and Phoenix City Council leadership to elevate the visibility of Phoenix's globally recognized bioscience industry leaders and institutes of research excellence and innovation.</p><p>Congressman Greg Stanton, who represents Arizona's 4th Congressional District, expressed his enthusiasm for the visit, “We've worked for years to position Phoenix as a global leader in the biosciences. Now, thanks to strategic, targeted investments, some of the most cutting-edge research is happening in our own backyard. Phoenix is a place where breakthroughs happen, where cures are discovered, and where we push the limits of human knowledge," said Stanton. “Arizona's economic partnership with Taiwan is already paying dividends in the advanced manufacturing sector, and I look forward to exploring opportunities for more collaboration in health care."</p><p>The organizer from Taiwan, Biotechnology and Pharmaceutical Industries Promotion Office (BPIPO), serving as Taiwan's biomedical industry's gateway, has been dedicated to advancing the fields of precision medicine, regenerative medicine, digital health, and other related areas in recent years. Dr. Michael Huang, Director of BPIPO, remarked, "During this visit to Phoenix, we aim to connect Taiwanese companies involved in the development of new drugs, diagnostics, digital health solutions, and medical devices, along with biomedical accelerators and hospitals. Our objective is to cultivate strategic partnerships for innovation and growth between Taiwan and Phoenix."</p><p>Phoenix Mayor Kate Gallego conveyed her excitement about the visit, stating, "We are honored to welcome our friends from Taiwan back to the United States, this time to discuss potential partnerships in the thriving bioscience sector. Phoenix is a leader in this emerging market, with new startup companies and discoveries right here in our downtown. Though Phoenix and Taiwan already work closely in the growing semiconductor industry thanks to Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company (TSMC)'s investment in our city, I am looking forward to additional collaborations around scientific and medical breakthroughs that will benefit us all."</p><p>The delegation, led by Pei-Li Chen, Deputy Director General of Industrial Development Administration (IDA), Ministry of Economic Affairs, Taiwan, will meet with industry leaders from Dignity Health's Barrow Neurological Institute and Ivy Brain Tumor Center in the Phoenix Medical Quarter, Translational Genomics Research Institute (TGen) Part of the City of Hope and tour the 850 PBC on the Phoenix Bioscience Core campus, and Mayo Clinic's Discovery Oasis ahead of the BIO International Convention in San Diego.   <br><br>The delegation will meet with top researchers and executives at Mayo Clinic's Discovery Oasis to discuss areas of mutual interest such as biotechnology, pharmaceuticals, medical devices, the Mayo ASU MedTech Accelerator and more. Mayo Clinic is home to research centers specializing in cutting-edge technologies such as gene therapy, regenerative medicine, and personalized medicine. Mayo Clinic has a global track record of successful partnerships with international organizations and is known for its groundbreaking discoveries in the field of bioscience.<br> <br>Deputy Director General Pei-Li Chen emphasized that biomedicine is a key industry actively promoted by Taiwan, stating, "The Taiwanese government recognizes that innovative technologies integrating interdisciplinary approaches are an inevitable trend in future industrial development. In the improvement of the industry ecosystem and formulation of related regulations, forward-thinking approaches should be adopted to guide the application of biomedical big data, nurture contract development and manufacturing service industries, and combine Taiwan's biotechnology, information, and communication sectors to promote the establishment and growth of the smart biomedical and smart agriculture chip industries."
