U-Haul Conference and Fitness Center

And another parking lot will bite the dust.

Plan review for U-Haul to add a 2 story 54,000 sq ft conference and fitness center behind their headquarters on Roanoke. The spot is currently a parking lot, so this will be a little bit of good infill. The fitness center would be for U-Haul employees only.



EDIT: Just a small tidbit of info on U-Haul being ranked in the top 10 for healthiest employers in 2018 and mention of the upcoming fitness center:

I have a client who is on their executive team and he was pretty excited about that but wasn't sure it was confirmed.

Architect is CCBG, the LLC appears to be formed by Aspirant--the Stewart developer. Proposes 4 'pods' of buildings; 3 of the 4 would be 3 stories, but one would be 21 stories.

Pre-app notice is a typo. Project is 3 x 3 story and 1 x 2 story. The developer has nothing to do with Aspirant and the Stewart other than using the same architect.

More 'location-first' renters choosing to live in Phoenix, report finds


Phoenix is the second most popular city for attracting renters who choose to move to the Valley for its affordable rental prices and ample job opportunities.

A recent report from Apartment List, an online listing site for apartments, surveyed more than 20,000 users looking at migration patterns from renters.

The report found that about 69 percent of Phoenix renters categorized as "location-first" movers chose to relocate to the Valley before applying for a job. While renters labeled as "job-first" movers chose to live in bigger metro areas primarily for job opportunities.

"Phoenix has historically been a market for the retirees, but now it's for new graduates," said Chris Camacho, the CEO and president of the Greater Phoenix Economic Council.

With a booming tech industry, a 4.9 percent state unemployment rate and a robust economy, job opportunities across the Valley are looking up.

But affordable housing is a major factor that contributes to why people flock to the Valley.

The average rent for a two-bedroom apartment in Phoenix is $1,015, according to RENTCafé, a national internet listing service for apartments and houses for rent. This makes Phoenix more appealing as compared to cities such as San Jose and Boston with average prices for a two-bedroom apartment at $2,580 and $2,080, respectively.

"Affordability is attractive, when they know they'll never own a home in other cities," Camacho said with regard to young people choosing to live in apartments rather than buying homes.

As more people who are less likely to have a college degree get pushed out of big metros from rising rents and low employment opportunities, cities across the Sun Belt are offering cheaper rents and more employment.

Apartment List's Sydney Bennet, author of the report, said metro areas with more land to create housing have an advantage over cities that have to rebuild within their area.

Thanks for the clarification--makes much more sense.

The 21 story is a typo?

^It's the only thing that makes sense. I can't figure out how they'd get < 40 du/acre and have a 21 story tower.

Reading the 4 pods of 4 buildings description again, this sounds like some garbage garden complex. I thought developers stopped building that nonsense.

Nice to see the Roosevelt gentrification cycle continue past 7th ave. Artists and creatives —-> restaurants and bars ——-> housing for young people ——-> luxury housing.

Great to see more of the central city improve
