Mesa Riverview is an outdoor shopping mall in Mesa, Arizona (part of the Phoenix metropolitan area) located in the northwestern corner of the city near Loop 202 and Dobson Road. The mall has a gross leasable area of 1,115,112 square feet (103,000 m²). Anchor stores include Bass Pro Shops, Cinemark Theatre, Home Depot, Bed Bath and Beyond, Toby Keith's I Love This Bar & Grill, Petco, Walmart, Marshalls, Office Max, Jo-Ann Fabrics, Howie's Game Shack and Sports Authority.
The Toby Keith's I Love This Bar & Grill located behind the Bass Pro Shop in Mesa Riverview is the first in a new franchise under Scottsdale-based Capri Restaurant Group Enterprises LLC, which purchased the master license agreement to build more Toby Keith restaurants nationwide.
De Rito Partners, the developer of the mall, began seeking approval from the Mesa City Council in 2005 with plans for commercial, retail, offices, and automotive dealers. Several ballot measures were proposed to change the zoning for the site, formerly agricultural land, and give tax incentives to the developers, which passed on referendum. Construction began in 2006 and stores began to open in 2007.
In March 2009, Sports Authority at Country Club Dr and Southern Ave in Mesa moved to Mesa Riverview, thus, beginning a new start to the mall.
In 2012, part of the Mesa Riverview complex was demolished to provide a more pedestrian-friendly means of access to the outdoor parts of the mall. This was carefully observed by City of Mesa planning officials as the development had been given over $80 million in financing tax incentives to build the complex.
The property is located less than 5 miles away from neighboring outdoor mall Tempe Marketplace in such a way that both malls compete for similar traffic, with Arizona State University students primarily being drawn to the Tempe Marketplace mall.
