Phoenix is a curious case. It's growing furiously. But arguably its downtown is going sideways.

Actually for the first time I would argue downtown is actually getting a solid amount of growth.

We have about 10, 20+ story projects either under construction or in planning with just as many midrise not including about 10 mid/high-rise completions in the proceeding couple of years. Not nearly all of them have been updated here.

There is also some ongoing potential for some new office buildings and RFP's on some city owned lots in the core that would require high density constructions. Which are all in various primordial stages and hopefully come to fruition.

In the next 3 years the skyline will be completely different.

Anyway glad to see some life on here!

The thing with the city is that it was built all post car in leapfrogging developments, you can drive all around and cant go more than a few blocks without coming across an infill project or apartment complex going up of various sizes and qualities, the city has pretty much gotten as wide as its going to get and is now, finally, beginning to get dense developments.

New midrize downtown construction

The Filmore: 2 block project, 600 apts/condos retail, street and connectivity improvements. Starting constructions "soon" got caught up in city council shenanigans for a year.

http://downtownphoenixjournal.com/20...-fillmore-rfp/







Aspirant, 14 floors, no rendering yet but this company is building the 20 story "Stewart" about 2 blocks away so its a good bet this will get built, across the street from the above project.

Fun little video ^





the stadiums are all in never-ending political wrangling that now involves basically every sports team, (diamondbacks, Coyotes, Suns and ASU) to varying degrees.

the Cardinals and out Soccer Expansion team are laughing from the sidelines. So no news on that ongoing disaster worth talking about. I suppose it means we are finally a "real city" as projects are increasingly bogged down in these kinds of negotiations.

Updates to Colliers Residences referenced above. Adjacent to block 23







the Phoenix Central station is being RFP'd again after some issues with the Chicago based company that previously won. This is across from the Kenect Project above

Phoenix to consider development for Central Station location

By Corina Vanek – Reporter, Phoenix Business Journal
Jun 15, 2018, 12:20pm MST Updated Jun 15, 2018, 12:41pm

Phoenix is readying a redevelopment request for a downtown parcel to incorporate the Central Station transit depot — again.

In 2013, the city chose a developer to create a high-rise apartment complex on the 2.6-acre site, bounded by First Avenue to the west, Central Avenue to the east, Polk Street to the north and Van Buren Street to the south.

During the planning process, developer Bill Smith of Chicago-based Smithfield Properties died. His family opted not to continue the process and sent the city back to the drawing board.

“Downtown is a far different place than it was in 2013,” said Chris Mackay, Phoenix's community and economic development director. “At the time, there was no high-rise residential, so the city had a bent focus on residential. Now, the concept is to issue this as a true mixed-use site.”

Transit must be the development's first priority, meaning it must be functional for those riding Valley Metro buses and light rail. Mackay said ground-floor commercial — such as a grocery store, café and retail space — would be welcomed. Seating areas, shade and drinking fountains for passengers waiting for a bus or train would also enhance the site.

“We want to create a space that draws people in,” Mackay said.

The city will benefit from a long-term revenue stream from the property's lease, and the city is aiming to create as much density near the light-rail stations as possible, Mackay said.

“It creates more of an 18-hour economy here,” she said.

Mackay pointed out there is a very low vacancy rate for office space downtown, so office space, residential uses, hotels and other uses would be welcome proposals.

The parcel's zoning designation allows for nearly any use, Mackay said, minus industrial or manufacturing uses.

The site is directly south of Civic Space Park, which is not included in the request and will remain a park regardless of what is built as an outcome of the RFP.

“We want to create a sense of place with the development,” Mackay said. “It can’t be a development that’s just a box. The new developments are redefining what downtown looks like, what our skyline looks like – and the same-old, same-old development won’t succeed on this corner.”

The city has a plan for what will happen with light rail and bus service during construction, but Mackay said generally these projects happen in phases, which could diminish some effects on transit service.

The project has garnered national and international interest, Mackay said.

Tentative plans are for the City Council to release the RFP on June 25. The proposals are expected to be due in August. Mackay said once the proposals go through the review process, a developer is selected and negotiations are complete, construction could begin on the parcel in late 2020.

Interested developers can sign up for notifications from the city about development requests for proposals at Phoenix.gov/EconDev and clicking on the “Hot List” button.

3rd Ave Jail Adaptive Reuse

This one fell through he cracks, an old urban Jail near our court complex has begun its renovation into the new Public Attorney's office for the County.

Its about half done








https://kjzz.org/content/580267/coun...on-street-jail

http://www.dlrgroup.com/work/madison...daptive-reuse/

Quote:
225 W. Madison, formerly known as the Madison Street Jail constructed in 1985, is a unique design opportunity to resurrect a decommissioned jail facility that has been vacant for 10 years and re-purpose through adaptive re-use as a Class A office building. DLR Group's design reconnects the building to the urban context and in the process enhances the urban street and pedestrian environment. Vacated initially due to overcrowding and infrastructure failure, Maricopa County, the facility owner, considered renovating the building for detention use, which was not feasible, or demolishing the 30-year-old structure at a cost of almost $10 million of taxpayer money. Ultimately, the decision was to use highest form of true sustainability by re-purposing the existing facility. The economic driver was the benefit of consolidating leased office space into this county owned facility adjacent to the Maricopa County Courts Complex.

I realize this is over a year old at this point, but I'll have to read through it when I get a chance. I just landed in Phoenix this morning, never been here before. I was surprised to see from the air on landing how many huge vacant lots there are, spitting distance from downtown. Was going to post and ask why that is.
