Epicenter in Gilbert: What’s Open, What’s Coming

The wait is finally over! Businesses at Epicenter at Agritopia in Gilbert are starting to open their doors, with more slated to roll out later this summer. Take a look at what’s open and what’s to come.

Leasing has been underway since early 2022 at The Tyler at Epicenter, which has 320 luxury apartment homes that sit above the tenant spaces. The pet-friendly apartment complex offers studios and one-, two- and three-bedroom units with community amenities like a resort-style pool, bike storage and a maker’s area.

Air Guitar, which is a unique take on the traditional convenience store, opened in the fall at the corner of Higley and Ray Roads. In addition to a coffee shop, an ice cream parlor, a sushi bar and spot for grabbing pizza slices, Air Guitar also carries grocery goods–and it is just steps away for The Tyler residents.
