Tempe Depot

If you scroll down on the site you can see what the Tempe Depot Station looked like in 1975 before it was remodeled. Originally built in 1924!

I was bicycling along the Indian Bend Wash greenbelt from Scottsdale to Tempe yesterday for the first time in a few years. As I crossed into Tempe, I noticed the land between McKellips and Curry, behind Big Surf, is behind a fence. The multiuse path is still open, but everything else is inaccessible. I think this are might have once been a golf course, but I can't remember for sure. Does anyone know what the status of this area is?

Here's a map, just in case my text does not describe it precisely:

Thanks. I've heard such good things about that place, but it's shame it looks so ugly and neglected from the path.

It looks like there is another walkway being built by the Tempe town lake. It’s right bellow the current walk way by the Tempe Art Center. Also the shrubs are being cleared from the dry lakebed.

Part of the lake’s edge is fenced. Maybe there is a walkway being paved?

I’m not a big fan of some of the developments on 2100 Rio Salado. For such a prime piece of real estate next to two major freeways I would expect better hotels but at least the development is growing.

It's good for Tempe's economy, but that entire development is a bore. It's not urban at all. I wish all those companies and hotels were going into Novus.

Thx for the pics. I’m surprised too about Aspen Heights. I haven’t seen any articles about them breaking ground. But great to see construction on the site.
