I hope this isn't like past superblock developments like Nexa or Alta Midtown or that one thing on University and Dorsey on similar sized lots. When you have so many acres, you don't get enough of an activated ground floor and there's often a lot of surface parking.

The Collective looks freaking amazing tho.

Just saw that too. The Grand makes me less miserable about the Cardinals Stadium not getting built there as planned.

"There's nothing I can do about it anymore."

That sure sounds like it, but naturally the lawyer is planning on appealing. Still, given the history of the case and the numerous failed appeals to date, I'd say the end is in sight. What's absurd is that the guy wasn't even living there anymore, he has a house somewhere else in Tempe.

He certainly didn’t do himself any favors by having his property be a junkyard. If it was more appealing he could win public support, but nobody wants to support an eyesore.

More development coming along Rio Salado. This is in the north side, just west of the 101. Next to Streetlights.

Here's hoping that development on Rio gets built. It's a hassle driving there as it is, but I'd gladly take density over industrial sites in the hottest part of town. I also like the look of structures butted closely to the freeways.

The fence that was previously just around The Collective site is now also around the Westin site next door. Given that the Westin site has that basketball court and things meant to be used in the planning stages, hopefully Westin is close to construction?

Notice the updated Grand siteplans and it looks like they are feeling bearish on the Tempe market. Originally they were going to have 5, 9 story midrises surrounding the water feature on the south side but now it's only 4. At least as I mentioned they've started to go vertical on the first 'tower' and garage.

The siteplan looks the same on their website? What new one are you talking about?

It's not a height reduction...They removed an entire building in the revised site plan now only showing 4 buildings at 9 stories each as opposed to the approved site plan that showed 5 just north of the freeway. That's a reduction of about 600K plus sqft. of office space. That's a sizable reduction. The way they've reoriented the site plan now doesn't even allow them to add the fifth building anymore.

I see what your saying but that site plan has been amended for some time now well over a year and it looks more like the three buildings facing the 202 have been combined into just two with the two center building being wider, I don’t think the square foot loss is as big as you do.
