Intentional infrastructure planning has been central to Greater Phoenix’s success ever since the first horse-drawn streetcar line giddied up and down Washington Street in 1887. The link between infrastructure and commerce has been direct ever since: One year after the railroad showed up in 1887, the original Phoenix Chamber of Commerce was organized.

Fast forward, really fast, to December 2019, when the 22-mile South Mountain Freeway — aka Loop 202 — officially opened, connecting the West Valley to the East Valley with Arizona’s first-ever public-private partnership highway project.

With more than $3 billion in bioscience capital expenditures earmarked for investment in Greater Phoenix over the next two years, the region is a thriving biomedical hub. These investments will create more than 7,000 healthcare and biomedical jobs. Fortunately, Greater Phoenix is home to some of the most innovative and forward-thinking educational institutions in the country.

The Phoenix Biomedical Campus (PBC) is a 30-acre complex in downtown Phoenix with more than 6 million sq. ft. of research, academic and clinical facilities for students earning advanced degrees in medical professions. It was established in 2004 in partnership with the Arizona Board of Regents, Arizona State University, Northern Arizona University, the University of Arizona and the City of Phoenix.
