This past Wednesday the 12th, the Scottsdale Planning Services Team (within the Current Planning Department) took a tour of Downtown Scottsdale, with John Little, Director of the Downtown Group, guiding the way.
We took the Scottsdale Trolley and traversed along most of Downtown, and took a stroll along the Arizona Canal and the new Southbridge project on the southside of the canal banks.
The highlight of the tour was Waterfront, which I did not expect. We got a tour of the lobby and 1st floor, and went to the 14th level (roof) and was treated to stunning views of the entire Valley. I want to thank my boss for having a camera on her, because I didn't have one!
The images are below, enjoy:
