Like the Stewart, this project now has a FB page. It's also been named Union Tempe Apartments.

Nice. I saw signs for "Union" at the 7th/Forest building across the street and was confused. Makes much more sense that they're for this project.

The FB page links to a leasing website: http://www.uniontempe.com/, which has a webcam: https://app.oxblue.com/open/EDR/tempe

From the webcam, it looks like the north tower is topped out--I believe that one was always supposed to be 12 stories. Middle tower is at about 16 out of 20 stories.

They are starting to build out the podium to the University frontage. From the renderings looks like the plan is to build out the podium in this phase, but not the initially proposed 16-story hotel. Hopefully the hotel can be built at some point--project would look lopsided without the third tower.

Yes, by my count they're at 20 floors, which I believe is what it's supposed to be. I'm pretty happy with it--there are a lot of cool angles around DT Tempe where the height shows up--looking north from Mill and looking south from 6th St. especially.

I'm interested to see what's done with the front "third" fronting University now. They have columns on only about half of it. Unclear to me if they're going to build out the whole garage only? Or go ahead and build the third tower?

I thought this was going to be student housing?

Looking at their website, that doesn't appear to be the case.

I don't know if it's solely marketed towards students, but the data points of which I'm aware are:
  • Original plans only had 1 and 2 bedroom units
  • Website now says there are 3 and 4 bedroom units (which I take to be student-oriented)
  • Opus sold a 90% interest in the property to EdR, a company that owns and manages student housing projects
  • The Website does advertise leasing for "2018-2019" which I take to mean leasing is oriented around school years
  • Website also sells itself to people "working in Tempe" etc.

So who knows. Maybe not solely student housing but amenable to students living there?

Exterior continuing. Balconies are going up. I hope they find a developer for the hotel portion soon--I think it will look weird with that corner cut out of the block. But with Omni, Westin and Hayden all also in the works, it's hard to say whether anyone will be willing. If it does languish for a while, hopefully they have a plaza/park/grass area instead of surface parking.

Those balconies are sharp!

This is going to be one of my favorite buildings in Tempe once it's finished. BioDesign C under construction down the street is #1. Tempe is getting some seriously awesome new architecture.

Jeez, this building is big.

For reference, the block there is 500 feet a side whereas Phoenix's are 300 feet a side.

And there's room for more still...

Agreed, this thing looks much bigger than I expected from the 202, nice addition to tempe's skyline.

Driftwood Acquisitions & Development (DAD), a company with decades of hospitality experience and a strategic focus on hotel and resort acquisitions, today announced plans to build a new Canopy by Hilton (NYSE: HLT) in Tempe, Arizona. The $60M+, 200-room Canopy by Hilton Tempe Downtown, University Area is in the heart of Tempe on University Drive, across the street from Arizona State University (ASU), one of the largest public university campuses by enrollment in the United States. DAD is purchasing the land parcel from The OPUS Group to anchor a corner of OPUS’ highly anticipated full block, mixed-use development Union Tempe, featuring two residential high-rise apartment towers connected to 31,000 sq. ft. of retail and restaurant space.

Should've read the article. 14 floors will be nicely rounding out the development.

I don't know how likely it would happen given the area's weird copper/faux wood fetish, but it would be great to see the hotel incorporate bricks like some of the other Canopy hotels do. Outside of some places on Mill, that kind of brick work (facade or otherwise) is sorely lacking given all the super modern buildings popping up and Downtown Tempe's relative age.

I think the cladding and windows are looking pretty good.
