USAA "Union Park at Norterra" Project
 
Hello everyone, This is my first post. I thought that the USAA "Union Park at Norterra" project should be at least mentioned in this thread. It's a million miles from downtown but is still in the City of Phoenix. I live right down the street from this area and see the progress every day. If there is enough interest, I can take some photos from a great distance and post them. If this project is already being discussed in a different thread let me know! :)

I am not affiliated with this project in any way nor am I affiliated with the following article:

Not much interest on this forum for suburban office buildings.

Actually, there is an interest and thank you for posting that. Welcome to the board. Biggus, go stand in the corner.

I've read so much on this forum bemoaning suburban development...

Nobody puts Biggus in the corner!........ (Somebody had to say it. You all were thinking it!)

Thank you DtnPhx, :)

Yes, I was worried that perhaps the development that I posted is not suitable for this thread because it isn't a highrise. Living in North Phoenix, I am starved for exciting building projects. I am pretty excited to be living near the USAA complex since I get to finally watch something pretty complicated get built.

Biggus, I totally understand if you are not a fan of sprawl. I am not either! I have become completely obsessed with density and infill, studying traditional cities around the world. I lived in Berlin for a short while and really noticed what they had to do there, being surrounded by the Berlin Wall for so many years. The suburban sprawl in Phoenix makes me sick and worried for the future!

I saw that you created this thread and if you do not feel that the USAA project is appropriate, that is fine. I was just trying to elaborate on the Phoenix scene, since we don't have much going on compared to some cities.

You're worried about sprawl...but you live in sprawl......

It's not that nobody's interested, it's just there's not much compared to other topics at hand here.

You're free to start a thread or whatever (maybe North Valley Projects?), those interested will enjoy the party.

Some people don't have an option. I lived downtown and interviewed at 3 different jobs all 20 miles away in 3 different directions before i left. Central city jobs can be kind of rare.

There could be many reasons NoPhoResident live in sprawl. Unfortunately, that is the way the valley has developed. I do believe it is slowly changing, but I don't think it will ever go away. Anyway, NPR, welcome to the board.

Classical in Phoenix led me to know that people do use this thread - I had abandoned it because I thought I was the only one interested. Updated.

Please PM me any requests for updates if you wish.
