Drove by on I-10 through downtown yesterday and the Sky crane looks like it's at about the height that the tower will eventually be. It's going to look pretty good driving west into the tunnel on I-10. Moon Tower is also now fairly visible as well.

With both of these and Link 1 & 2, I love how the towers are steadily approaching I-10. I've always thought this was kind of a week spot for driving through our downtown on a major interstate. You really can't see any towers except from a couple miles out.

Rivulet Media to develop mixed-use project at iconic Union Station in downtown Phoeni

Finally some updates regarding Union Station!! Soooo does this mean the building won't be used for Amtrak?

Aaron Klusman has big plans for the iconic Union Station in downtown Phoenix.

The co-founder, chairman and CEO of Gilbert-based Rivulet Media Inc. plans to move the company headquarters to the former train station at 401 W. Harrison St., and develop a mixed-use project that will include a production studio, residential tower, boutique hotel and office space on 10 acres.

According to Vizzda LLC real estate database, Klusman paid $4 million to Spring Communications LP for the 30,267-square-foot Union Station building that was built in 1923.

There are two telecommunication towers on the 7.34-acre site, located within an opportunity zone south of the southwest corner of Third Avenue and Jefferson Street, according to Vizzda. The property also includes the iconic Icehouse, an arts and entertainment venue.

Phoenix Union Station, which is nearing its 100th birthday, is on the National Register of Historic Places.

Renovations are beginning on the project, with the first phase expected to be completed between fall 2022 and spring 2023.

Klusman said it's too soon to determine the number of residential units that will built, as well as how many square feet will be dedicated to the production studio and headquarters.

Man, who edited that article? Two glaring mistakes in a short blurb.

I don't doubt what the guy behind this company has done before but their penny stock business is by nature sketchy as hell. I would be very skeptical of this.

I do hope they keep this publicly accessible so it can be used as a train station.

Strange the icehouse sold too... I never thought the owners would give it up, but I suppose without the raves they had in the early 2000s and events drying up and not appreciably near the entertainment core they finally had to divest.

Boo. I'm okay with waiting 5 more years until there is more of a population in that area and having something cool like an indoor market or Churchill type experience that's open to the public and not some office space.

The Ferry Building in San Francisco is a good example of what this space could be. Maybe the permanent home of Phoenix Public Market with both long-term leases and weekly leases for vendors.

Another reason I'm skeptical of this. An actual architect wouldn't be that full of himself to put a gynormous boiling hot metal panel on an otherwise functioning balcony.

An actual developer wouldn't waste money on a "placeholder" tower rendering. This is a level of fantasy that would make all those condomania fly-by-nighters ashamed.
