Mixed-use development Rivulon, one of the centerpiece projects in Gilbert’s Central Business District, will start another phase of the development this year, Nationwide Realty Investors’ president announced Jan. 9.

The announcement from President and COO Brian Ellis came one day after the Gilbert Planning Commission approved designs for two, four-story, 160,00-square foot office buildings. Construction is expected to start this summer with an anticipated completion in late 2021.

The Rivulon Lake project will include a one-acre lake and an adjacent parking structure at the development on the northeast corner of Gilbert Road and the Loop 202-SanTan Freeway. The project will be in the center of the Rivulon Development off Rivulon Boulevard.

“We are thrilled to begin development on this next phase at Rivulon,” Ellis said in a press release. “The Lake buildings and the visually stunning amenity lake feature will really bring to life our full vision for this development.”

The four-story buildings will feature glass facades with natural limestone pillars. The landscape will include walking paths and outdoor seating with shaded viewing piers out over the lake feature.


The parking structure will have more than 850 free parking spaces to accommodate the office development.

The 250-acre Rivulon development is home to major town employers, including Deloitte and Isagenix International. It also includes a retail mix with LA Fitness and several restaurants.
