Since 2018, the RVi – Arizona office has been located on Ash Avenue in Tempe, on the second floor of a 1990s building, tucked between rattling train tracks and a well-traveled traffic circle. Offices for Atwell, RVI’s partner company, were located on the first floor. The Tempe building served its purpose, providing the team a place to work together on projects as well as opportunities to venture out on lunch-time group treks up Tempe’s “A” Mountain for a view of the Arizona State University campus. Throughout the pandemic, however, the RVi team was offered the option of working from home or within COVID-19 safety protocols in the Tempe office. Since March 2020, fewer employees had been working in the office, but what was certain is that the space would no longer be able accommodate the growing team with a swelling docket of projects.
In 2020-2021, RVi and Atwell began the search for a new space that would be large enough to provide well-functioning workspaces in a suitable location. After a time-intensive search, the companies landed on the Portales Corporate Center, located on Scottsdale Road in Scottsdale. Although there were plenty of supply chain and workforce challenges that caused delays along the way, the new office has been well worth the wait.
We are delighted to have moved in May, and the team is enjoying the new space. It is reflective of the incredible work of our team members. It ignites creativity and synergy with large collaboration areas. Complete with a living, green wall and plenty of natural light, it also supports RVi’s mission of opening the outdoors. And, as we settle in, we look forward to opening our new space to our partners, clients and associates and friends. You can find us at 4900 North Scottsdale Road, Suite 1200, Scottsdale, AZ 85251. As we continue to grow our national platform, we look forward to providing our full suite of planning, landscape architecture, parks and open space design, and digital visualization services to Arizona and beyond!
