City of Chandler, incorporated in 1920 began as a small farming community and has grown into a high tech community where entrepreneurial spirit and hometown traditions intermingle. Chandler has exceptional services, a diverse culture and a vibrant history. Chandler is investing significant resources to ensure superior infrastructure and a great location for companies to do business. Located on the premiere 101 Science and Technology Corridor, Chandler provides easy access to major universities, research hospitals and Chandler’s internationally recognized biotechnology companies. This is one reason why Covance, one of the world’s largest and most comprehensive drug development services companies, recently expanded their operations into Chandler. Other companies, with large employee bases include Intel, Freescale Semiconductor, Avnet, Verizon Wireless and Ebay-Paypal. This results in a higher average income for the residents and is a magnet for attracting new families into the area. Homes in Chandler range from condos to single family detached homes, both resale and new. Some of the companies doing new construction are Cachet homes building at Crescent Falls at Fulton Ranch, Monterey Homes building at Stonefield Colony and Fulton Homes building at Shoreline at Fulton Ranch.
The city supports the arts, having the Center for the Performing Arts where the Chandler Symphony performs along with plays, ballet and big name musicians.
