TEMPE | Union Tempe/7th Street Mixed Use | 240/200/164 FT | 20/16/12 FLOORS

Construction appears to be going full tilt here so I figured it was worth getting its own thread. I walk by nearly every day and should be able to get fairly regular pictures. Should be fun to watch it go up.

Nice update. It may be worthwhile to also post this in the Highrise Construction area:

Do you know if this thread can just be linked there, or if it has to be separately posted?

Ugh. 7S is apparently being mostly bought out by, and will be managed by a student housing developer.

EdR Announces Edge-of-Campus Student Housing Development at Arizona State University

Quote:
TEMPE, AZ - EdR, one of the nation's largest developers, owners and managers of high-quality collegiate housing communities, today announced it has started construction on a community adjacent to Arizona State University in Tempe in a joint agreement with Opus Development Company.

Strategically located on the north edge of the ASU main campus, the project is only one block to Mill Avenue, the downtown entertainment and retail district, and two blocks to the light rail transit.

The development will feature 407 residential units ranging in size from 414 square feet to over 1,300 square feet. EdR will be 90 percent owner of the $164.9 million development and manage the community upon completion in Summer, 2018.

"This development will strengthen our position in Tempe, one of the most robust communities in Arizona, and home to one of the largest universities in the country," said EdR chief executive officer Randy Churchey. "Demand for highly amenitized communities is on the rise in Tempe, and with our partner, Opus, EdR expects this to be one of the top communities in the market."

The community will feature amenities such as 24-hour fitness center, yoga studio, grilling area, a dog park, club rooms, a bike storage / work room, terrace deck cabanas, state-of-the-art technology / wi-fi throughout the buildings, and 31,000 square feet of retail space.

"We're thrilled that this vibrant, edge-of-campus rental community is under way," said Larry Pobuda, senior vice president, general manager, Opus Development Company, L.L.C. "We designed a mixed-use project unique to the area that allows for an active, centrally located community within walking distance to all that Tempe has to offer."

EdR owns and manages two additional communities in Tempe and Phoenix.

I noticed when I drove by there on Sunday that there was a base for a second tower crane. Will be cool to see the second crane, which I assume will be the taller crane, going up soon.

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.
