A 35-story condo project has been proposed for the parking lot near the Viad (Dial) Tower in central Phoenix. This is very preliminary:

Heard through the grapevine: A San Diego developer is buying the surface parking lot at the Viad Center, Central and Palm Ln. The preliminary plan involves 330 condos in 35 stories, 2 parking levels below ground and 4 above ground. The architectural rendering shows a tapering building. much unlike the bulky Viad Building.

Dial Corporation (the parent of the spin-off Viad) originally planned two identical towers set perpendicular to one another. The first tower was completed in 1991 but Dial could not find an anchor tenant for a companion tower and the plan languished. The new tower would have the same height as the 2nd Dial tower, which preserves the zoning variance granted by the City of Phoenix . The plan is being floated before neighborhood groups to gauge possible support and opposition.

The developer will take his plan next to the Central Village Planning Commission in September.
