Welcome to Chandler

Chandler - A Thriving Tech Community

Chandler, the fourth largest city in Arizona, has grown significantly since the 1990s. Located just 30 minutes south-east of Phoenix, the city is recognized as one of the fastest growing innovation and technology centers in the country.

A community founded by Dr AJ Chandler in 1912, the “town” then consisted of 3 wooden shacks. Over a century later, the community has flourished into a city of over 260,000 people. Initially agriculture was the primary business – based on cotton, corn, and ostrich farms! Those farms supplied the demand for ostrich plumes used in women’s hats of the era, and the city still holds an annual Ostrich Festival today!

But it was the age of the computer that changed the city’s fortune forever. The hot dry desert climate is ideal for the production of microchips. Manufacturing plants have replaced the cotton fields and hi-tech firms such as Intel, NXP, and Microchip Technology have created thousands of jobs.

If your hi-tech job is bringing you to the Valley, consider buying a home in Chandler. Financial powerhouses such as Wells Fargo, Bank of America, and PayPal are also some of the major employers in Chandler.

All the services you need are close by, including first rate schools, high-quality healthcare, and a wide variety selection of retail centers, malls, restaurants, and many other entertainment options.

Downtown has evolved into a vibrant, walkable, arts and entertainment district full of boutique shops, eclectic art galleries, bars and restaurants, and the world-class Chandler Center for the Arts. The historic Hotel San Marcos Golf Resort (now a Crowne Plaza) opened in 1913 as Arizona’s first golf resort anchors the area. You’ll find gathering spaces, charming murals and public art that tie it all together in beauty and harmony.

If you love sports and outdoor activities, you will find plenty to do here, including all kinds of facilities at the 90-acre Snedigar Sports Complex, as well as several golf courses.

Shoppers love exploring the outdoor outlet mall just minutes away; Phoenix Premium Outlets is a popular destination that sits in the shadow of Wild Horse Pass Casino…one of two casinos just to the south of the town limits in the Gila River Indian Community. Wild Horse Pass is also the new home of Phoenix Rising FC, Arizona’s highest-level professional soccer team.

There are lots of places to enjoy with the kids too, including the Arizona Railway Museum, the Crayola Experience, and Rawhide, a western town that is fun for all the family.
