The Chandler Chamber of Commerce is moving across the street.

Officials announced in a press released Nov. 4 that the Chandler Chamber of Commerce would relocate by the end of the year to a stand-alone office space located at 101 W. Commonwealth Ave. in downtown Chandler—right across the street from its current location.

“On behalf of the Chandler Chamber Board of Directors, we are thrilled to be moving to a stand-alone, downtown Chandler location, easily accessible to our businesses and community alike. This change will open up so many incredible opportunities and we look forward to strengthening our downtown Chandler presence even more,” Chandler chamber board chair Molly Bell said in a news release.

Chamber officials said they hope to complete the move by December. The building currently housing the chamber—at 25 S. Arizona Place—was purchased and is undergoing renovations.

“We are very excited about this location, right in the heart of downtown Chandler," Chandler chamber CEO Terri Kimble said in a news release. "The new building provides convenient, walk-in access for community, business and tourism. While our location at 25 S. Arizona Place served us well over the years, we have always desired street level access for patrons. The time was right and we look forward to building even stronger ties with our members."
