Current Development Projects
Peach Properties is extremely honored that the City of Tucson accepted our plan for redevelopment of the 4.2 acre Ronstadt Transit Center site, located at Congress St. and 6th Ave. This project marks the culmination of a two year, two phase RFP process that included numerous meetings with stakeholders, a proposal, and a final public presentation. The site currently houses the Ronstadt Transit Center and two parking lots. Our plan includes development of mixed use retail, office space, live/work lofts, public spaces, a public market alongside the new transit mall, and a parking garage.
The City of Tucson issued a Request for Proposals (RFP) for the restoration, redevelopment, and reuse of the former Tucson Performing Arts Center / Cursillo property at 408 S. Sixth Avenue, SW corner of S. Sixth Ave. and 14th Street. The upstairs is planned to remain a performance and event venue and the basement will be converted to a mixed-use market space.
75 Broadway will be Tucson’s largest core retail mixed use project in over 50 years. The Peach partnership controls over 60,000 square feet of street retail bordered by Congress and 6th Avenue. The development includes a retail market side and pedestrian alley through the middle of the block, with retail, bar, restaurant and other venues.
The historic Rodgers Hospital, located at 123 S. Stone Ave., is currently undergoing extensive renovation, including outdoor seating, which will open up to the newly remodeled Ochoa Street, with upgraded pedestrian thoroughfares, shade structures, and more. Also housed on this property are Perfect Teeth Dentistry, Curley’s Barber Shop, and the Southern Arizona office of the Honorable Senator Kyrsten Sinema.
Peach Properties and Marcel Dabdoub acquired the Chicago Store, a landmark multi-story building in Historic Downtown Tucson at 130 E. Congress. Built in 1918 in the Italianate style of early 20th-century American architecture, it has been the home of the Los Angeles Furniture Store, Tucson’s first JC Penney, and since 1967 the Chicago Music Store (originally the Chicago Store). The most unique attributes of this building include its open floor plan and prominent façade, which underwent a $200,000 facelift in 2013 to fully restore the prismatic glass transom above the storefront windows. The building site, on the southwest corner of Congress St. and 6th Ave., ranks among the highest in both pedestrian and vehicular traffic. In addition to being located across from a streetcar stop on the route connecting downtown Tucson to the University of Arizona, it is also adjacent to 75 Broadway.
In the city of South Tucson, Peach Properties is redeveloping and revitalizing the former Beach Furniture and Appliance building, orginally constructed in 1953, located at the corner of South 6th Avenue and 32nd Street. Currently leasing, the mixed-use project features 11,000+ SF of commercial space and 7 remodeled live/work studios.
Developers Ron Schwabe and Marcel Dabdoub are partnering to remodel the buildings at 98 (former Wig-o-Rama), 100 (former Grill) and 110 E. Congress St. into over 9,000 square feet of space for dining and retail. Each space will rejuvenate the original brick façade to its original splendor.
Originally built in the 1940’s, the 12,000 square foot Haskell Linen Building was converted to office, retail and restaurant space in the 1980’s. Located at 299 S. Park Avenue, this property offers easy access to Broadway, the Kino Parkway, and Downtown Tucson.
One of Peach Properties’ most recent restoration projects is the King Warehouse, located at 510 N. 7th Ave. in Tucson’s historic Warehouse Arts District. The building, which was formerly the location of Star Auto Parts in the 1940’s and 50’s, has been transformed into 16,000 square feet of urban commercial loft spaces. This new mixed-use project is the seventh building completed by Peach Properties in the Warehouse Arts District since 1985.
Formerly the Firestone Warehouse, this large building is centrally located in the Warehouse Arts District on the corner of 6th Ave. and 6th St. Renovated in the 1990s, it serves as home to some of Tucson’s finest art galleries, photography studios, and retail shops.
At the corner of 6th Ave. & 7th St., the Market Inn is conveniently located near downtown and 4th Ave. in Tucson’s Warehouse Arts District. Market Inn tenants include all locally owned establishments. This development is true to Peach Properties’ architectural and design style, featuring exposed ductwork, original brick structures, and rustic metalwork. Peach Properties was responsible for acquisition, redevelopment, and leasing of the property.
Located in the Warehouse Arts District with over 18,000 square feet of usable space and a classic bow truss ceiling, this building showcases the best of Peach’s urban/industrial restoration style.
Another outstanding example of Peach Properties’ historical redevelopment and reuse is 119 E. Toole Ave. Originally scheduled for demolition, the decision by the Arizona Department of Transportation to auction this property and others along Toole Ave. has infused new life into the Historic Warehouse Arts District. It also serves as a unifying link between neighborhoods located on either side of the railroad tracks located just north of the building.
Formerly a Safeway Market, Peach Properties redeveloped The Broadway Brewery Block. The rustic Broadway Brewery Block, located on the southwest corner of Broadway and Herbert, is now home to locally owned businesses.
Home to the Peach Properties central office, this large multi-use building in downtown Tucson was redeveloped to serve as headquarters for Providence Service Corp, one of the few Fortune 500 corporations located in Tucson. This building features office space and penthouse level condos on the upper floors. 44 E. Broadway is situated in the center of the business and government district on a streetcar stop, within easy access to restaurants, banks, and performing arts venues.
In 2015, Ron Schwabe partnered with Marcel Dabdoub in the purchase and redevelopment of the Brings Building. The Brings Funeral Home originally opened in 1928. It was converted into a two-story 13,845 square foot building consisting of build-to-suit office spaces ranging from 200 to 6,000 square feet. Brings is located at the heart of Downtown Tucson, close to TEP and the Scottish Rite Cathedral. Tenants have easy access to the streetcar, other professional buildings, cafes, and restaurants. Brings is home to Brings Coworking and a growing number of local independent businesses.
Peach Properties is taking on the redevelopment of the historic La Buena restaurant. Located at 22nd Street and 4th Avenue, it offers a great view of A Mountain and is less than a mile from Downtown. The project is currently home to a growing number of independent businesses.
In 1921, this building was the home of Tucson’s largest blacksmith shop. Peach Properties acquired, re-developed and converted this 11,000 square foot property into live/work studios in 2004.
