US Airways calls on Staubach to help expand corporate HQ facility
Mike Sunnucks
The Business Journal of Phoenix - 2:49 PM MST Thursday

US Airways Group Inc. is expanding its Tempe corporate headquarters and has retained Dallas real estate firm The Staubach Co., to help with those expansion plans and new planned development.

US Airways (NYSE: LCC) is currently based in downtown Tempe, where it occupies a 216,000-square-foot office building. The airline plans on adding office space as well as retail and other uses to that Tempe parcel. The expansion could also include restaurants, a hotel, conference center and condominiums.

Staubach will help the Arizona-based airline find development partners in that expansion, the companies said Thursday.

The US Airways headquarters site is located at Mill Avenue and Rio Salado Parkway in downtown Tempe, is one of the region's prime pieces of real estate. It will be located on the Valley Metro light rail line

Staubach is one of the top real estate firms in the U.S. Its founder is former Dallas Cowboys quarterback Roger Staubach.

Steve Corney, managing principal of Staubach's Arizona divisions, will coordinate US Airways development efforts.

Tempe-based America West Airlines and Arlington, Va.-based US Airways merged last year. The new combined carrier is flying under the US Air banner but opted to locate its headquarters in Tempe.

^That is very good news....that whole area s going through a transformation

Azndragon837 Feb 24, 2006 9:43 AM

Looks like the southeast corner of Veteran's Way and College will be where the Armory Condominium Project will go...you can see it in the www.tempe.gov/business flyover video of the city, it's really cool.

So Don, you should update your Tempe Projects lst.

Here's another under construction project I came across:

http://www.dorseyplacecondos.com/ima...soon_r2_c1.jpg

The Dorsey Place Condos are located at Dorsey (east of Rural) and University. It doesn't look like student residences. The more density the merrier.

Azndragon837 Mar 27, 2006 8:34 PM

Also, an UPDATE on Centerpoint Condominiums:

Construction continues at Centerpoint. They are nearly finished with the excavation and
have started foundation work. The crane should be coming up out of the ground in the
next few weeks.

The contractor has asked to do some night time concrete work. They have sent a letter
to property owners around them to inform them of the work and give them a contact name
and number for any complaints. The most impacted residents around the project were given
a tea cup, night time tea, a CD of Sleepy Time music, and ear plugs along with the letter -
to ease the pain.

Hahaha, I think that is funny....at least construction will speed up with night time work.
Looks like the Phoenix bickering sure did not slow it down.

Here are some renderings from Will Bruder's web site for the ASU Business College at Mill & University. I don't know how real these designs are. Maybe they're just preliminary and conceptual. But sweet mother of Jesus, would these be cool or what?

I don't think they would be that cool given the circumstance and location. Something like that would be amazingly cool as a resort on the side of a mountain or in the outskirts where it can blend with the surrounds... but I think of college-use buildings in the more traditional sense. And at one of the most high profile street corners in the city, it would want something that fits in with the more historic vibe of Mill Ave, and something that is more ped friendly.

Azndragon837 Mar 31, 2006 7:36 PM

^I like the design, but it better engage to the street (Both Univeristy and Mill Ave). Place retail and service frontage on both streets, and maybe student housing somewhere.

It looks conceptual, but it might be real. On ASU's website, the section that talks about Michael Crow's the New American University, the Will Bruder design is showcased on there, so this might be real.

Las Vegas has a new Grand Canyon-themed mega resort in the works. The image of a large canyon with clouds floating closely above it is definitely coming across.

I like it. I wonder was that spire jutting up from the center is exactly? Is it purely for aesthetics, or will it have some other purpose? Will people have access to it? Looks large enough possibly.

It would feel incredibly massive at street-level.

I recall reading something to the effect that this would be a mixed-use project, so ground-floor retail should be a component. I'm pleased to think Michael Crow thinks highly enough of this to put it on ASU's website. ASU's newer buildings (the alumni building, the Lattie Coor building et al) are nicely designed. But for the most part, ASU is a farrago of Southwest Mediocre. The great thing about the Gateway project is that it really would tell the world ASU is not merely some oversized public university/party school, but a serious contender in new technologies and design. If realized, this Bruder concept would radically alter how people see ASU.

I don't know what that thing is. A carillion? FAA bait? But the vertical element counterbalances the overall horizontal effect and guides the eye into the complex. You can imagine how neat it would be at night with the proper lighting.

^Raaaaa! Damn, that went up FAST! You can see 3 cranes! That is sooo cool. Whoa, the one crane that is the tallest is constructing the main crane. Centerpoint is definately a go. Wushu18t (Lee) mentioned to me that when he went to class this Friday morning, there was not a crane there. A few hours later, the cranes were up.

Centerpoint couldn't have timed it better to put the cranes up for the arts festival. Funny, because Centerpoint Condominiums is the official main sponsor of the Tempe Arts Festival.

Word of advice: try to avoid Tempe this weekend. Both the Arts Festival and the Music Festival (featuring the likes of John Mayer, Gin Blossoms, Vertical Horizon, Train, and a lot more) are going on at the same time, so traffic and parking will be a bitch.

^ Best Evil Conspiracy of 2006:

A Southwest Airlines plane, piloted by Gordon and Krietor, crashes into the crane on their way to Sky Harbor announcing that company's headquarters relocation to Phoenix.

Team Hallman doctor photos from a US Airways tower security camera to prove this, but are caught off guard by a plucky FAA bureaucrat who was in town the day of the accident. He wasn't actually doing any work--that would be rather unlike the FAA here--he just happened to be in Tempe at the time taking pictures of Hooters waitresses.

The plane next to Michelle's rather plump right boob knocking over the crane is in a completely different part of the sky.

The nation is both bewildered and outraged, but life continues more or less as normal in our sleepy city as most citizens dust off the politics as usual.

combusean Apr 1, 2006 2:12 PM

Check the ASU Thread for larger renderings and a site plan for the ASU Arts and Business Gateway, the big curvy thing up there. It does have retail fronting Mill--perhaps not in the traditional sense but I do like the mixed use aspects of this project.

Lakeside hotel deal may be near in Tempe
180-room tower would be full service facility

Jahna Berry
The Arizona Republic
Apr. 7, 2006

TEMPE -Suncor Development Co., the firm that is building gleaming blue office towers and condos on Tempe Town Lake, says it is tantalizingly close to a lakeside hotel deal.

The proposal is for a 12- to 15-story hotel with up to 180 rooms and a possible condominium component that would be a "four-star or better" level of service, said Randy Levin, vice president of design and urban infill development for Suncor.

"We think the lake is very special," Levin said. "We are not interested in selling a land pad. We are interested in getting it right."

If Suncor's hotel plans gel, the property will become part of a flurry of Tempe hotel news:

• The owners of the Tempe Mission Palms are reviewing a plan to add up to 200 rooms and 20,000 square feet of meeting space to the 300-room downtown hotel.

• The Fiesta Inn Resort's owners have announced plans to pour $5 million in renovations for landscaping and conference space.

• Tempe city leaders are finalizing a $42.5 million land sale with a team led by a California developer that would bring hotel rooms and shopping to 27 acres of city property within two miles of Suncor's development.

Tempe, which has aggressively chased tourism dollars, has longed for an upscale downtown hotel.

While Tempe has a wealth of limited-service hotels, there are only six full-service hotels in the city, said Michael Martin, executive vice president of the Tempe Convention & Visitors Bureau.

combusean Apr 8, 2006 3:33 AM

I don't quite understand the hotel demand economics in Tempe. But it makes sense that Suncor is thinking of a condotel as that market is essentially untapped market here.

Is this a scenario like Vegas where if we build it, they will come or is there really enough natural demand in Tempe for this sort of thing with everything that's going on? Why aren't hotels like the Twin Palms (that big pink building on Apache) thriving on their own?

Remember that the Arts and Business Gateway includes a 120 room education hotel, whatever that means.

Another Apache Blvd. condo tower idea pops up

Katie Nelson
The Arizona Republic
Apr. 19, 2006 12:00 AM

Another condo tower is being proposed along Apache Boulevard, the most recent step in the possible revitalization of the area along with light rail.

It's too early to tell whether the proposal will withstand city scrutiny. It is in early planning stages. But the developer is confident the towering project would bring new residents and a new outlook to the boulevard.

LandSource Holdings is working to get city approval and soon will begin making the rounds to community groups, said Jim Powers, a company partner.

LandSource wants to replace the lots at 948 and 1000 E. Apache with an 18-story condo complex. It would be just east of Rural Road on Apache.

Initial plans submitted to the city for review show it would include retail space on the ground floor. There would be live/work, studio and 1 and 2-bedroom residential units.

The Phoenix-based company is new to the urban residential building business, but has teamed with an experienced firm in Scottsdale, Circle West Architects. That group is responsible for the Longbow Business Park and Golf Club in Mesa and Market Street at DC Ranch in north Scottsdale.

Powers said he and his partners realize there will be plentiful competition within landlocked Tempe.

Tempe is building high-rise housing at record rates. Compared with this time last year, the city has issued about 400 more building permits, and construction valuation has almost doubled, according to the city's Development Services department.

"A lot of that housing, especially the upscale housing, is overpriced," Powers said. "We feel like we can deliver housing that is more moderately priced, simply because you're not paying the riverfront pricing, and we're not expecting to have to skimp on quality to do it."

Like others before him - and others likely on the way - he sees Apache Boulevard turning into a place where first-time buyers can find housing.

"When you look at all the young couples who want to live in Tempe but just can't afford the rising rates, you're looking at our audience," Powers said. "These are the people who want to be there."

Kickass!

^ Finally - somebody gets it. Not everyone can afford $400 or $500 per square foot units.

I hope this happens.

Thanks for the photo updates loftlovr ...

Azndragon837 Apr 20, 2006 10:54 PM

Another Apache Condo Project? Wow. This is what I know about it:

- 18 stories, at 215 feet.

- The site is located just east of Rural and Apache, on the side next to a gas station, which is next to the Taco Bell. As for this project's chance of passing through the planning department; the height will become an issue, because under the CSS (Commercial Shopping and Services) Zoning, and the TOD (Transportation Overlay District) Zoning, which is geared towards light rail and pedestrian-friendly environments, the maxiumum height allowed barely hits 50 feet. Therefore, the project needs to get a variance for a height increase.

Don, it looks like you need to do another update to the list!:banana:

Red Bull's Flugtag last Saturday attracted over 50,000 toasty partiers. Part gonzo engineering, part Spring Break, this festival required lots of sunscreen and beer (why would anyone want to be pumped up on Red Bull for this?) The Hayden Ferry's 12 story construction is picking up steam, and the Edgewater condo project on the other side is done, and Phase II is underway. Above, a crane picks up the wreckage of the would-be flying machines.

hahaha, that's awesome. I wish I could have made it to that.

Question on the 12-story building: Is that the building that was supposedly redesigned to have some sort of New years attraction built into it? Like a ball or a light or something? I can't exactly remember.

combusean May 3, 2006 5:08 AM

^ There's arguments against the shade approach. One big one is that many shady trees are also tremendously hyperallergenic. Phoenix was once known as a haven for asthmatics and the like but through invasive species--both deliberate and not--we've completely eliminated what could have been a desert paradise if we knew what we were doing then.

The modern attempts at this are indeed short sighted at sparse. I'll never quite understand why shade is so important in Arizona urban projects but no landscape architect ever gets it. Who hires these people?

HooverDam May 3, 2006 6:35 AM

Yah I guess I can see the argument for the allergies point of view. But I suffer from pretty bad seasonal allergies and I'd much prefer shade and sneezing, then no shade and no sneezing. But thats just me.

I know nothing about plants, but we need to find a plant that 1.uses little water, 2. provides a lot of shade, 3. is allergy friendly.

Sounds like a tough assignment though, Id be happy if #1 and 2 were doable though.

Shalimar neighbors unite against condo plans

Katie Nelson
The Arizona Republic
May. 3, 2006 12:00 AM

Residents are uniting in the Shalimar neighborhood, reforming old neighborhood groups and talking strategy to battle developers who want to transform the area with condo developments.

A meeting is planned for tonight, and two recent gatherings have been key in bringing the community together. One, Sunday night at a resident's home, attracted nearly 100 people.

"The house was stuffed," said Bruce Goldthorpe, who attended the meeting. "There were people in the living room, dining room, family room and in and out the doors. People were sitting on the floor and standing in corners. We had to keep reminding people to speak louder when the back group started waving their hands."

They gathered to voice concerns about the fate of their property values. Some expressed fears about the disappearance of one of the last open green spaces in Tempe. But mainly, they came to learn.

The east central Tempe residents have been trying several tactics to give themselves some say in three developments that could dramatically alter their community: the sale and redevelopment of the Shalimar Country Club Golf Course, the Tri-City Baptist Church on Southern Avenue and Price Road and the Michael's Plaza shopping center across the street.

Five-story condos could be built on the church property. A Las Vegas developer is considering buying the golf course, the neighborhood's crown jewel, and has purchased the Michael's Plaza. Condos could go on both sites.

Neighbors have been meeting with politicians such as Councilman Hut Hutson and Mayor Hugh Hallman. They've been trying to inform each other and, they say, they've been unifying.

"Really, it was more to introduce people together and to get a common understanding about what we're facing," Andrew Ching, a Shalimar homeowner and attorney, said of the meetings.

The residents talked about the history of the area and about a lawsuit in the early '80s over the land's use. They discussed the status of the current deal, Ching said, and what the process would be for the developer to get zoning approval to add condos.

Tonight's meeting is scheduled for the Huntington Drive cul-de-sac in the southeastern corner of the Shalimar neighborhood.

Residents said they plan to start a petition to be submitted to the city that states neighbors oppose any zoning changes for the church property. Representatives of the developers of at least one of the area projects also will be there to answer questions.

Sidebar

Change is coming

Here's the status of projects in the Shalimar neighborhood:

• The Shalimar Country Club Golf Course will remain but likely will be spruced up. Brownstones or condos also would be added on the property, said Jeff Chain, president of Millennium Properties & Development, of Las Vegas. Millennium is in escrow for that property, and the company has two architects drawing up potential redesign plans. A design could be ready by fall.

• The Tri-City Baptist Church at Southern Avenue and Price Road also is in escrow. The developer looking at buying it, Magellan Partners, is revising its initial plan for a graduated five-story condo complex after it got a bad response from neighbors unhappy with the height. The church and its schools on site are moving to Chandler. The deal is expected to close in August. The developer hopes to take a revised plan to neighbors in the next few weeks.

• The Michael's Plaza shopping center across the street has been sold to the same developer who is looking at redeveloping the golf course. The plaza is the current home of a Michael's Arts & Crafts, a Dilly's Deli and other merchants. Millennium closed a deal March 14 to buy the property. It likely will be razed and reconfigured into a combination retail/residential property, according to Chain.

22-story condo project planned for Town Lake
City Council should see plans in a few weeks

Jahna Berry
The Arizona Republic
May. 5, 2006 12:00 AM

A 22-story condominium tower may be headed to the northern shore of Tempe Town Lake.

The development, tentatively called Onyx, would be nestled on a site along Playa Del Norte Drive, the area near Scottsdale Road and Loop 202. There are two similar projects already under way in that area, including a 532-unit apartment-condo project called Mondrian and a 137-unit condo development called Northshore.

WestStone Group of Companies, the developer that is building Onyx and Northshore, isn't worried about competition from the recent burst of similar projects elsewhere in Tempe.

"There are limited opportunities for shoreline access," said Greg Loper, director of development at WestStone.

The unfinished Northshore project has sold all but a handful of its units. The lake is "just an ideal location," Loper said.

WestStone expects to submit formal plans to the city in a few weeks.

The project would have about 200 units, including townhouses and condos. They would sell, on the low end, for $400,000 to $500,000, Loper estimated. The site is just less than 1.5 acres, and the tower would be around 220 to 230 feet tall, he said.

The Town Lake property is a hot commodity, and developers are pursuing more condos, said Chris Anaradian, Tempe development services manager. Initially, a restaurant was to be built where the proposed Onyx project would go, he said.

Suncor Development Co. may also inject more condos to its complex of office space, condominium towers and shops near Rio Salado Boulevard and Mill Avenue.

The proposed Onyx site has the necessary zoning, but the proposal must be approved by the City Council during public hearings, Anaradian said.

In general, any project that is more than 200 feet tall has to notify the Federal Aviation Administration, Anaradian said, adding that the city won't issue a building permit until a project has applied for FAA review.
