[Editor’s Note: Cityscape is a significant development in downtown Phoenix and to the growth of business success in the light rail corridor. Light Rail Advisors founded LightRailConnect.com and LightRailConnect Magazine to complement this goal]
Exciting developments are happening in Phoenix. Not only is Phoenix one of the most desirable places in America to live, it is becoming one of the most ideal places to work.
Phoenix is receiving another boost in the coming months with UnitedHealthcare’s move to the CityScape building in downtown.
As one of the state’s largest health and well-being companies, serving more than 1.2 million Arizonans, UnitedHealthcare employs a broad workforce in Phoenix, including information-technology specialists, claims processors, clinical teams and health-plan leadership.
This relocation further reinforces the company’s commitment to Phoenix as both an employer and community partner.
We have been working with business leaders for months to bolster the economic engine that is downtown; and with UnitedHealthcare transferring such a large workforce there, nearby businesses should also benefit from increased foot traffic and economic activity.
UnitedHealthcare’s move to CityScape represents yet another positive step in further establishing Phoenix as a world-class city.
We are excited about building upon this recent success and can’t wait to see what the future holds for Phoenix and our residents. – Phil Gordon, Phoenix– Jeri Jones, Phoenix
