Copper Springs Hospital was incredibly impressed with the caliber, quantity and skill level of the employees that are available within a short drive of the Avondale location. One of the main reasons we selected Avondale was because of its robust talent pipeline, many used to a lengthy commute, and our employees often thank us for bringing them home to work, which makes us even more proud to have located in Avondale.”

Historic Avondale

Avondale is home to three historic areas, each with its own unique characteristics
and redevelopment opportunities. Contact one of our experts if you are interested
in learning more about development opportunities in Historic Avondale.

Las Ligas and Rio
Vista Neighborhoods

The Las Ligas and Rio Vista neighborhoods are predominantly residential neighborhoods dating back to the 1940s and 50s. The rural feel complements the large amount of agriculture surrounding the area, particularly cattle lots and hay production. Some commercial development opportunities are found in the northeast corner of the area at Lower Buckeye Road and El Mirage Road.


The BLVD will be the West Valley's newest mixed-use destination and will offer
pedestrian oriented districts, generous landscaping, boutique shops, and vibrant
dining options, as well as parks and plazas for family and friends to gather.
