- Could initiate the growth of the light rail (branch out further into phoenix)
- IF built as a "green building" it advertises and promotes sustainability to other centers throughout the U.S.
- The possible increase of chain restaurants & large scale corporations to Mill Ave.
- Smaller local businesses could face competition and/or buyout.
