Chinatown in Mesa

We have talked about Mekong Plaza before and how its a model for creative reuse for communities across the state. Now, the people behind that project are taking it a step further by expanding their food court and offering a wide variety of asian dining experiences.

From casual dining to sit down elegance, this looks like another opportunity to create jobs and attract shoppers and diners from other communities to the area. As they have seen it other areas, the result will hopefully attract other businesses and encourage improvement in the surrounding community.

Culture and diversity is something that Mesa has embraced and it can pay long term economic dividends improving our quality of life, increasing variety, and making the city more attractive for businesses looking to relocate.
