The Shops at 9400, the nearly completed boutique retail center at 94th Street and Shea Boulevard in Scottsdale, should fill up nicely after the first of the year.

To date, restaurant South Beach, California-based yogurt chain Golden Spoon and upscale barbershop Who’s Next have opened. And Ling & Louie’s Asian Bar and Grill, Scottsdale-based restaurateur Randy Schoch’s new concept, has had signs up for weeks in anticipation of a Jan. 14 debut.

Here’s what else is coming soon, according to John Rosso of Westar Development, which builds, owns and manages high-end office and retail centers in the Valley.


North of Cuba, a high-end cigar shop, is “trying to open by the end of January,” Rosso said.

Continental Cleaners and Scottsdale Hand and Foot Spa, a place for manicures and pedicures, should be open within weeks.

Pretty Papers is moving from Scottsdale Pavilions to the new center, and Elements, a new-to-the-market massage chain, should be open by the end of February, Rosso said.

The second version of 7th Heaven, a restaurant at the Esplanade in Phoenix’s Biltmore area, is also slated to open in February. 7th Heaven is a breakfast, lunch and dinner spot with a bakery on the premises.

A third 7th Heaven is planned for Tempe.

A Seattle-based hot spot for coffee and tea is slated to open at Shops at 9400 in March.


Rosso said a few more leases are in progress and should be announced soon.

Also planned for the growing center is a grassy landscaped area, “a kick-back area where you can read a book,” Rosso said. And where Westar can bring in occasional outdoor entertainment in the spring.

The retail center abuts a new 35,000-square-foot executive office complex.

The new shopping-dining complex sits just east of the bustling Sprouts-anchored shopping center at 92nd Street and Shea Boulevard.

That center also includes several eateries including Chompie’s, McDonald’s and Chipotle.

Rosso said the two can coexist comfortably. “We felt there is an opportunity to bring different restaurant venues into the neighborhood,” he said.
