Glendale is a dynamic city located in the rapidly growing northwest part of the Phoenix metropolitan area. With a population of over 237,000 people, Glendale is Arizona’s sixth largest city, composed of a diverse population covering a vast cross section of economic and cultural communities. 

Glendale was established in 1892 and has transformed into a vibrant city on the move. Built on farming and irrigation, Glendale’s forefathers laid the foundation for a city described as one with “small town character and ambiance” allowing Glendale to grow and transform into a tourist attraction in the valley. Glendale’s charm stems from a treasured heritage, strong community spirit, and superior planning, making it one of Arizona’s most distinctive and diverse.

Glendale’s diverse economic base includes advanced business services, aerospace and defense, education, healthcare, manufacturing and signature entertainment. Major employers including Honeywell, Bechtel, Delta Dental, AAA, Coca-Cola, Conair and Humana call Glendale their home. Empereon-Constar, Progressive Leasing and American Furniture Warehouse also have recently joined the ranks of notable employers. Loop 101, Loop 303 and U.S. 60 all cross through Glendale, with Interstate 17 and Interstate 10 in close proximity. Northern Parkway, which is currently under construction, will further enhance transportation access through the city. Glendale is served by the Burlington Northern Santa Fe railroad and has its own municipal airport. The city is close to Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport, connecting it to important national and international markets.

Glendale boasts a Historic Downtown that spans 10 blocks, with many specialty shops located throughout the area. Glendale’s signature festivals like Glendale Glitters, Glitter & Glow Block Party, the Glendale Chocolate Affaire, and the Summer Band Concert Series attract on average of 350,000 visitors to the area annually. Over the past 15 years, the city has also invested more than $400 million in infrastructure improvements to create a world class sports & entertainment district. The NFL’s Arizona Cardinals play at the 63,000 seat University of Phoenix Stadium. The NHL’s Arizona Coyotes also call Glendale home, playing in the 17,000 seat Gila River Arena. The city hosts two Major League Baseball teams, the Los Angeles Dodgers and Chicago White Sox, at Camelback Ranch Glendale during spring training. The district has become a regional employment center with multiple Class A office buildings and outstanding amenities including Westgate Entertainment District, Tanger Outlets, and Cabela’s.
