The Town of Gilbert Design Review Commission will consider at its June 9 meeting a developer’s request to build a Main Event entertainment complex, like two other Arizona locations previously opened in Tempe in 2013 and in Avondale earlier this year (AZBEX, Feb. 25, 2015).
Developer LeSueur Investments seeks to build the 50KSF facility on 5.9 acres of vacant farmland at the SEC of East Ray Road and Santan Village Parkway just west of the Loop 202 Santan Freeway. The project site is surrounded vacant commercial parcels to the east and north, and by apartments and a hotel to the south.
Embodying the Main Event credo, “Eat, Bowl, Play,” the new ground up construction project will produce an indoor family entertainment venue featuring 22 bowling lanes, billiards, laser tag, a ropes course, more than 100 virtual and interactive games, and meeting rooms, as well as dining and a full-service bar. The venue will employ as many as 150, with up to 30 working any given shift.
The site will have a main entry facing west accessing a full-width private collector road, which will be constructed by the developer, as well as temporary basins for the remaining vacant land. The new road will connect to existing private drives accessing the SanTan Village mall to the south and Topgolf Gilbert to the north.
