Mayo Clinic will join forces with Arizona State University to develop a new $266 million medical-school branch in Scottsdale that could begin teaching medical students by 2014.

Thats good news for real estate in that area and just for the general surrounding community. There was an AJ’s Fine Food on 136th Street that closed, presumably because of limited demand. Maybe this will bring added interest in the area.
