RIVERSIDE NEIGHBORHOOD:

On top of the projects you have mentioned, there is one going up called Tempe Lofts on the NE corner of 5th and Roosevelt.

Just to make clear...USAirways owns that lot? Not Hines? My understanding was that the original tower and master plan was done for Hines and that America West was merely a long term tenant? I could be wrong.

combusean Jan 20, 2006 4:44 AM

Hines is a property mananger in the sense that USAirways knows nothing about putting up a highrise tower nor how to manage it. I think that's exclusive of USAirways owning the actual building.

U.S. Airways owns the land in where its building sits on, and the large parking lot on the NW corner of 3rd and Mill. The other parking lot adjacent to the east of the Phase One Building is actually owned by Monti's Restaurant.

that's pretty amazing! i can't believe that same white crane will still be around in three years!

is the boise tower develope down in tempe now, too? ;)

I like the 1st/Roosevelt project. It's densification at its finest--where you had two SF houses before on large lots, you now have seven units in an urban setting.

How does Tempe approach this sort of thing? The Riverside neighborhood seems to have the widest housing variety in the state--large lot single family, apartments, condos, now high rises. Are neighbors welcoming this densification? How much opposition is there to these smaller 3 story infill projects?

Regardless, Tempe is definitely holding out as the urban front runner in this state. The zoning code is intelligent, simple, and well layed out with defined logical standards rather than the arbitrary legalese that fill's Phoenix's approach. The Land Use element of the general plan has mixed use all over the city--Phoenix is still hammering that out as they have been for months.

Not to mention the other towers for Tempe that have been proposed... the 3 for Mill/3rd, two 15's for the old Club Rio site and the Rio East site which I guarantee you will grow much taller.

I second renaming this thread to The Tempe Projects Thread.

Is there a thread already? If not, I suggest to make a brand new thread instead.

-Andrew

Don B. Jan 20, 2006 11:37 PM

It is done. I'm working on a list now.

BoiseBro, you're right, I should have edited out that crane, which is building the 12-story second phase of Hayden Ferry Lakeside.

Combusean, you are correct. I just didn't want to be accused of over-reaching. :D

oliveurban Jan 21, 2006 12:33 AM

Yea, making a Tempe thread was a great idea ...

Don B. Jan 21, 2006 2:36 AM

Okay, here's my preliminary Tempe projects list:

(being revised)

Some renderings:

Any update on Vela? I saw a rendering of it on swconstruction.com and have heard nothing of it since then.

Vicelord John Jan 21, 2006 2:59 AM

what are they building on Rio Solado drive just east of Priest... Looks to be a high rise because there is a crane on the river banks.

Don B. Jan 21, 2006 3:04 AM

^ I think that's the Tempe Arts Center.

Sean, I saw this on that "We Know Urban" website while doing my research today:

http://www.weknowurban.com/525townlake.htm

Point 1: Vela was proposed by Pulte.
Point 2: "525 Town Lake" is also proposed by Pulte.

Ergo, maybe the latter is the latest incarnation of Vela? Who knows?

--don

PS: Found this on Pulte's website:

http://www.pulte.com/homefinder/comi..._AcctCode=1217

combusean Jan 21, 2006 4:30 AM

^ Vela looks dead. :(

525 Town Lake is 67 units on 3.3 acres, maximum 3 stories. Neither Tempe nor Google understand how PDF linking works, so click here for the nitty gritties.

Also,
http://www.tempe.gov/housing/capers/...ojects2004.pdf

has some somewhat useful information

and there's another one titled something like Neil's Redevelopment Projects that I can't find.

Don B. Jan 21, 2006 4:43 AM

^ We don't know that Vela is dead. I prefer to think of it as "idling." :D

This 525 project appears to be something entirely different. I need to add it and the ASU Gateway center to that list.

Nice list, Don.

Pulte Homes has owned the 520 parcel for a while now--for 11 months its been recorded in the assessor's office, so I figure there's been some idea that they were going to do something with it.

It's the same parcel that Vela was supposed to be on, so unless they have another site lined up it seems unlikely that we'll see it in its current incarnation.

From http://www.haydenferrylakeside.com/siteplan.htm ...

http://emvis.net/~sean/ssp/hfl.png

It's a 10 level parking structure with a three story retail annex. B-1 is built, 8 stories, B-2 is under construction at 12 stories, B-3 is on its way at 10. I think 3 levels are completed and below ground tho i'm not sure.

oliveurban Jan 21, 2006 11:25 AM

Ah, above ground parking and retail.

Thanks Sean.
