The Mercado is located West of I-10 in the Menlo Park neighborhood of Downtown Tucson.
Located within the newly developed Mercado District of Menlo Park and the future Mission District, the MSA has the benefit of being located in Tucson’s most beautiful new mixed-use transit oriented neighborhoods. The MSA follows the design ethics put together by the Mercado District, all masonry construction and must pass a design review process that holds the building to a higher standard that both honors the past and recognizes the future. The mantra among builders of the Mercado District is that they are building a future historic district. MSA is posed to achieve LEED® (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) Gold status from the United States Green Build Council. Water Harvesting, solar panels, rastra block walls and smart design made that possible. The Mission District plans for some of the densest mixed-use development in downtown, mixing housing, retail and commercial spaces Tucson will see it’s downtown grow significantly in size. As the Western terminus of Tucson’s new Modern Streetcar the whole area will see a dynamic shift in its synergy to downtown.
