I think their thinking will change as Scottsdale and Tempe densifies along Scottsdale Rd. Traffic is bad enough and they have several more multi-family residential projects in the pipeline. Traffic will eventually become too congested and they are going to have to look for other options.

I don't know how you can look at at least South Scottsdale and not want to throw a train down. I understand how it could alter the character of Scottsdale Rd through Old Town, but they could at least run it on the couplet. Then throw it over to the 101 so it hits SCC and the airpark.... clearly getting ahead of the curve here.

Maybe we can bring hitch hiking back and thumb a ride from Amazon's delivery drones.

Toured the new local development. Here is a view from their 9th floor looking out to Mirabella. Still has 8 floors left to go!

Pretty sure they're being planted in the new medians on University Dr. between College and Rural.

Looks awesome. It's going to really pop from that angle (although *hopefully* it will be partially obscured by the Omni).

That definitely seems to be the most likely option. Didn't think of that, thanks!

Also they show the permit issued for Skyview and that it's under construction...not sure if this was a mistake?

Good shout. For the lazy:



I really like the step up from Mill.

That is really nice. That area is getting so dense, I hope the rest of Mill Ave follows suit!

I just noticed this too! I hope its not a mistake... but I can confirm this weekend if any activity is taking place on site. I thought this project was dead but Golub could have been accelerating plans through the city tthis whole time for the past couple years.

Also, there are a few more office developments popping up on the tracker. 979 Playa says a 6 story office building and Ten 01 Playa showed up on the vacant lot site adjacent to the Lofts hotel and Ten01 apartments. Hope to see some plans for these soon!

Not sure if this is the current rendering, but the height seems to match.

Strange article--apples to oranges comparisons between deals in the aughts to deals today; primarily sourced by a former city manager that was not involved with the deal when negotiated and is not involved today; vague insinuations of impropriety for Charles Huellmantel like "he has his fingers on everything" with no specifics; no attempt to independently value the public amenities in the deal, but rather just hand-waving them away to be able to argue that the land was sold for "$50,000.00;" over-promising with claims like that there were bids north of $14m, while only later in the article revealing that the bidder was clearly unqualified, and failing to articulate whether those bids would also have sought tax breaks; pimping a "secret audit," a draft of which was apparently provided to the Republic, but then not including any portions of the audit in the article, apparently because the City wouldn't confirm the authenticity of the document, and/or because the audit concluded that there was no evidence of impropriety, etc.

I'm all for scrutinizing deals like this, but this article reads like a justification of a foregone conclusion.

Updates

777 Tower:


Side Profile of Watermark:


I love the different colors in the glass.

Hyatt House: (Not Pictured) up on the 4th floor and looks to be pouring the columns for floor 5. This thing is moving quick!

Skyview: Drove by today and no new activity on the site. Makes me doubt the development tracker to be true about issuing a building permit (unless construction is a bit delayed)

Let's hope it doesn't move as slowly as The Pier if it is indeed moving forward at all.

The Pier finally has columns peaking out above the ground - only took 2 years!

I saw that too. By the end of the year, we’ll finally be on the second floor.
