The Student housing development on Terrace and Orange was approved 6-1 in last nights meeting. Council member Lauren Kuby voted against it due to the developer not having any workforce or affordable component to the project. Many neighbors showed up and expressed their thoughts on rents being raised in the area. Im glad to see this project get pushed through.

No, this is a 7 story development across the street from Vertex at the NWC of Terrance and Orange. It would replace a 56 year old 1-2 story complex that's there now.

Maybe the third time is the charm for the future of the building that was once part of Arizona’s first historic home preservation effort.

Tempe City Council has taken the first step to finalize a development agreement that will require a developer to restore the Hayden house, which was once the home of Monti’s La Casa Vieja restaurant, to the condition it was in 1924. The house was built in 1873.

The council’s second public hearing and final vote on the project is scheduled for Aug. 30.

If it's approved, and once the historic preservation is complete and the structure is again occupiable, the developer will build a 285,000-square-foot Class A office complex to the west of the historic home, and either a multifamily residential building or hotel to the south of the home on the parcel along Mill Avenue and Rio Salado Parkway...

Hensel-Phelps is revisiting the project and has offered to sell the historic portion of the property back to the city for $10 once the renovation is complete. The property totals 2.5 acres.

“The historic portion must be restored before anything else can be done on the site,” said John Southard, Tempe’s historic preservation officer. “It must be 100 percent in good shape before they can start on the other buildings, and there is a provision in the agreement that if they damage [the historic Hayden house] they do not get to move forward with the project.”

The newly amended development agreement calls for a building with a “tighter footprint” than the one originally proposed, Baxter said, but the new buildings will be pushed farther from the historic home, giving it an extra layer of protection.

The agreement also provides an 8-year government property lease with an abatement of the government property lease excise tax, or GPLET. GPLETs involve city governments owning land but leasing or allowing private developments on those parcels. They result in the developers and businesses on those lands paying lower property taxes than if they owned the land.

Southard said the house was the first historic home restoration in the state when the Hayden sisters, daughters of Charles Hayden, the founder of Tempe, hired Robert Evans to restore the original adobe in 1924.

Now, crews are working to restore it to the same condition as 1924. So far, work has included creating adobe bricks made from a nearly identical mixture to the original, which Southard said is ideal in historic preservation. The bricks are being shaped and baked in the summer heat inside the shell of the restaurant, which has been gutted and the walls have been stripped to reveal the adobe underneath.

Some of the struggles have been similar to what might have been endured nearly a century ago as well. When a recent storm came through, some of the bricks that had been drying outside were destroyed.

Reggie Mackay, an expert on adobe buildings, has been working on the restoration for a few weeks, Southard said. Once the development agreement is finalized, Hensel-Phelps will have until June 30, 2020 to complete the restoration.

“This is exciting because it will be the first time the city has any ownership of this building, the first time the city will have any say in how it is being used,” Baxter said.

Hopefully it passes 2nd vote and they get the restoration done quick. It would be nice to see those buildings started. Its been such a deadzone for a while.

Yes. Plus I'm hopeful that a well-designed development can make up for some of the dead space created by the big setbacks and parking garage of the (now) ADP building. If the have a pedestrian walkway bisecting the lot going north-south that connects with the pedestrian space between 222 S. Mill and its garage, it will be a decently nice connection.

THIS is great news - I personally could give two hoots about the NEW portion of this project if they were not going to be able to properly preserve the house. If I recall correctly didn't one iteration of this proposal actually rise THROUGH the roof of the 1870s adobe house? Stupid.

Any idea what proposal the city council decided on? it's been a while since we've had any movement on this project.

Happy to see some work being done in this area. Now if Park Place can get moving soon. Hopefully these will continue to spur development in that area along the light rail.

Puff piece on Aura Watermark.

https://www.globest.com/2018/08/29/h...tempe-skyline/

Quote:
Fenix Development is aiming to transform the Tempe skyline with its latest project, The Watermark. The Los Angeles-based developer is building a 1.9 million-square-live-work-play complex sprawling over 15 acres in Tempe Town Lake. Construction started last year, and includes a 265,000-square-foot, eight-story class-A, spec office tower with seven floors of subterranean parking, a 360-unit luxury apartment complex, 44,000 square feet of retail and restaurant space and a 250-room on-site hotel. The office tower and a potion of the retail space is the first phase of the project, and will deliver in 2019...

Fenix isn’t only designing the property for the future of the market but also a future with fewer cars. It worked with design firm Gensler to create a parking structure that can be incorporated into the building’s square footage in the future. For example, the parking garage’s ventilation screens can be replaces windows. “While it would have been less cost prohibitive to locate the parking elsewhere, we knew we wanted to place the parking and office space in one setting to create a constant sense of energy and life throughout the project that couldn’t be replicated otherwise,” explains Loretz. “This is a legacy project for Fenix and has been meticulously crafted to the highest of standards. This is what the future of Tempe looks like.”
I think the author is mistaken in saying that it's 8 story office with 7 levels of subterranean parking. They are not building subterranean parking. Author's own article indicates this, talking about incorporating the parking into the building's square footage if future demand dictates.

While on the subject, snapped a couple pictures the other day. Office is finally going up!
