Construction appears to be going full tilt here so I figured it was worth getting its own thread. I walk by nearly every day and should be able to get fairly regular pictures. Should be fun to watch it go up.

Nice update. It may be worthwhile to also post this in the Highrise Construction area:

Do you know if this thread can just be linked there, or if it has to be separately posted?

My question is if the hotel is not happening anytime soon...then what is filling University? A concrete pad like for the hotel at The Collier Center that never happened??

Ugh. 7S is apparently being mostly bought out by, and will be managed by a student housing developer.

EdR Announces Edge-of-Campus Student Housing Development at Arizona State University


TEMPE, AZ - EdR, one of the nation's largest developers, owners and managers of high-quality collegiate housing communities, today announced it has started construction on a community adjacent to Arizona State University in Tempe in a joint agreement with Opus Development Company.

Strategically located on the north edge of the ASU main campus, the project is only one block to Mill Avenue, the downtown entertainment and retail district, and two blocks to the light rail transit.

The development will feature 407 residential units ranging in size from 414 square feet to over 1,300 square feet. EdR will be 90 percent owner of the $164.9 million development and manage the community upon completion in Summer, 2018.

"This development will strengthen our position in Tempe, one of the most robust communities in Arizona, and home to one of the largest universities in the country," said EdR chief executive officer Randy Churchey. "Demand for highly amenitized communities is on the rise in Tempe, and with our partner, Opus, EdR expects this to be one of the top communities in the market."

The community will feature amenities such as 24-hour fitness center, yoga studio, grilling area, a dog park, club rooms, a bike storage / work room, terrace deck cabanas, state-of-the-art technology / wi-fi throughout the buildings, and 31,000 square feet of retail space.

"We're thrilled that this vibrant, edge-of-campus rental community is under way," said Larry Pobuda, senior vice president, general manager, Opus Development Company, L.L.C. "We designed a mixed-use project unique to the area that allows for an active, centrally located community within walking distance to all that Tempe has to offer."

EdR owns and manages two additional communities in Tempe and Phoenix.

I noticed when I drove by there on Sunday that there was a base for a second tower crane. Will be cool to see the second crane, which I assume will be the taller crane, going up soon.

It doesn't show up very well in my crappy phone pictures, but you can see the setback taking shape from the walk-up units that will be on the north side.

Drove by today, it appears the smaller tower (12 floors) is topped out and work is starting on the 16th floor (eventually 20) should be topped out around December.

They've started going vertical on the southern retail portion... I'm assuming they'll leave the SW corner flat until the hotel portion is ready to get built?
