A boutique community. Founded in heritage.

The Wayne Smith was named after renowned Arizona landscape architect A. Wayne Smith. Wayne bought the original property from Tempe's former Mayor in the 70's and converted it into the office for his firm, A. Wayne Smith and Associates. His firm was known for master planned development projects such as McCormick Ranch, Scottsdale Ranch, and various apartment and community projects around the region. In the 80's, Smith sold the property and purchased The Farm at South Mountain to develop his vision of a holistic farm-to-table event destination.

Three owners and 30 years later, The Wayne Smith has been inherited by new owner Salim Zeitoun. He has dedicated himself to building Tempe's best co-working, event, and community destination.

Our new masterplan is bold and will generate purposeful action in our local community. Schedule a tour with us to visit the space or see our upcoming events to become a part of our thriving community.
