Village at Prasada is a new West Valley development located at Loop 303 and Waddell Road that promises to open 700,000 square feet of shops, restaurants and entertainment in fall 2022.
According to Simon CRE development, Surprise residents expressed an interest in more food options, and Village at Prasada hopes to deliver by bringing in popular Valley restaurants to its restaurant hub called Street Fare at Alexandria.
"Anyone that lives in Surprise knows how long they currently have to drive to visit some of these existing restaurants’ locations, so being able to give them the food that they want in a center that is more convenient for them, that’s the dream as a developer,” said Joshua Simon, SimonCRE’s Founder and CEO, in a news release.
Here's a look at every restaurant opening in the Village at Prasada this year.
