Rio Nuevo blesses two new projects downtown
This article has a little more detail.
I'm excited about the Marist/Foundation for Senior Living re-development. A 7-story structure (from the current 2-3) with an acceptable urban design.
City Park...well, the concept is cool. Albuquerque is doing the same thing, but with housing...albeit they aren't on par with the # of housing projects downtown Tucson is developing and/or planning. I remember Bourn started with a 15 story structure...down to 9, then 7, 6, 5, now 4. I'm not as critical in the outcome, height-wise. (The decade long delay, what a joke.) I always hope for taller, but the concept of "entertainment" is an intriguing one for me.
Construction in 2 to 3 months...we'll see
