Main Employment Areas

Downtown Core

The focus of this area is to create a vibrant, active district in the heart of the Town Center that complements the culture and heritage of the community and provides a range of venues that celebrate all that is unique to Queen Creek.

Town Center

Town Center encompasses nearly 900 acres offering commercial, entertainment, and housing options. The Town Center is envisioned to be a vibrant community that serves as a gathering place for residents, and an economic engine for business development.
