Cannon Beach to add attractions to Mesa wave pool

Mesa’s $240M Cannon Beach to Add Attractions

They’ve taken longer than they had hoped, but the developers behind Cannon Beach believe the added attractions will make it worth it. The Phoenix Business Journal reports the builder was stymied by a slower-than-expected development of the wave technology. But in the meantime, the developer behind the Cannon Beach surf park is adjusting project plans to make way for more attractions.

Those adjustments include adding 20,000 more square feet of beach and an excavation for a 17-foot cliff-diving lagoon. The $240 million mixed-use surf park in Mesa is expected to be ready for a soft roll-out next spring.

Indoor playground KTR announced it was taking a 30,000-square-foot space last December. Other retail tenants committed to Cannon Beach include 4Ever Young med spa, Prime IV Hydration & Wellness, Ananda Salon, Moku Hawaiian Grill, Wow Wow Hawaiian Lemonade and Seven Brothers Burgers.

Once the retail buildings and the build-out of the surf park are finished, the attention will then turn to building two hotels — one “Cannon Beach” branded hotel and one hotel from a national brand.
