A prominent medical marijuana company has submitted a rezoning application with the City of Phoenix in order to repurpose an existing commercial space.
Based in Tempe, Harvest Health & Recreation Incorporated is one of the largest cannabis companies in the country, enjoying revenues of nearly $56 million in the second quarter of this year, an increase of just over $29 million from the same quarter last year.
The company currently has 35 locations up and running in seven states. In Arizona, Harvest has fourteen dispensaries.
If all goes according to plans, its fifteenth location would open at the northwest corner of Tatum Boulevard and Shea Boulevard in the city’s Paradise Valley neighborhood and would see the reconversion of nearly 4,000 square feet of space.
According to city documents, work repurposing the space would include renovating the structure’s south façade through the construction of a window wall that would match another window wall on the west side of the building, thus creating “a more symmetrical appearance.”
The project will also see construction of a front canopy, updated landscaping, and the addition of around 1,000 square feet of operating space.
In addition, Harvest is committed to installing energy efficient lighting, as well as a drip irrigation system in order to minimize water waste.
The project is awaiting the approval of the Phoenix Planning Commission, as well as the Phoenix City Council.
