*Ahem*. I believe Combusean has already asked for this conversation to stop. I have deleted all non-development posts. Also, city-to-city comparisons are not allowed in the development forums.

No more :order:

Why does construction stop on the weekends?

Snapped some pics this weekend on a long walk! Looking good!

/\Thanks for taking and sharing the pics. Central Station is looking good. Is it just me or is Union Phase 2 taking a long time? It seems like it's been at this stage for months.

Development at Steele Indian School Park poised to move forward after long delay
 
Progress being made.

An ambitious project on a long-vacant parcel of land in one of the Valley's most prime locations could soon be moving forward.

A resident appealed the decision, meaning it must first go to the city's Planning Commission for a recommendation before the Phoenix City Council can weigh in.

The commission will consider it on Dec. 7, and the tentative date for the council vote is Jan. 3, 2024, planning department spokesperson Teleia Galaviz told Axios Phoenix. Tate said it's "theoretically possible" construction could begin before the end of 2024, but there's a lot to do.

Roosevelt Row project to bring apartments, restaurant in 'Manzana' development

https://www.azcentral.com/story/mone...x/71691083007/

Quote:

A midcentury modern-inspired apartment complex planned near Roosevelt Row aims to capitalize on "an opportunity to create a world-class destination for architects" in Phoenix.

Intersection Development, a Phoenix-based company with several downtown plans in the works, expects to break ground on Manzana, a 68-unit structure with ground-floor restaurants and bars, in the first quarter of 2025.

The building is planned for a parking lot facing 1st Avenue, just south of Roosevelt Street. Intersection Development's office is in the adjacent hardware store building, which also houses the arts organization Xico and Barcoa Agaveria.

Phoenix has put out an RFP for 1016 North 2nd St. This is 1/2 block north of Carly's and the RFP is looking for a mixed-use high-rise. Since it's a small lot, I am hoping something decently tall comes out of this.

Google maps has 1016 N 2nd St including the 1014 building, this is inaccurate. The RFP is for the first of two vacant lots directly north of that.

Yea, I noticed Google Maps was wrong as well. There's a pic of the parcel in the RFP.

This seems ridiculous. Would be a great addition to Roosevelt...

There's nothing in this article that says it's cancelled, it's still winding its way through the appeals process.

I still think this should be closer to the downtown core like Van Buren in an area that's more compatible with it. It's clear the neighborhood does not want another chain nightclub in the vein of some of the "restaurants" it's already had problems with like whatever's been located at 3rd St and Roosevelt.

I hate that the bogeyman of insufficient parking is being used as a proxy for whatever objections the opponents of Federales really have. On the other hand, Federales is not making any friends by hiring Jack​ Wilenchik as their lawyer.

It would. I can't understand the pushback.

Well I take that back. It's Phoenix where almost anything different or unique is met with opposition and scrutiny.

That's 1 reason the city center and skyline are so disappointing for the city's size.

Michael's Jewelers & Azteca Bridal
 
I remember seeing something on social media recently that the owner was finally retiring.

Cornish Pasty owns the entire structure/parcel right? If so, wonder what plans will be in place for the ground floor of the building with 2 empty store fronts soon.

Also, looks like the Azteca Bridal property (1010 E. Washington Street) was recently sold to developers so hopefully we can get 7-10 stories of residential/hospitality use. Apologies if this had been posted already.

The problem with CPC is that despite all their good food and drink, they haven't been a good neighbor on Monroe Street. They've already taken over storefronts previously occupied by Subway and a floral shop and converted them to spaces for storage and food prep. They look awful with messy interiors visible through uncovered windows. If more spaces are being vacated, I hope the blight doesn't spread.

combusean Nov 29, 2023 9:33 PM

The new owner of the Azteca Bridal Plaza is not an apartment developer--they redevelop strip centers like the plaza.

I wouldn't have thought that them to be a victim of their own success like that. There's only so much small-scale, streetfront retail and this has managed to gobble up 3 of them.

It would be maybe nice if they relocated to a bigger pad and let something more low key develop there.

Any updates on the lot on 2nd St and Portland in Phoenix?
 
Are they still planning on building the apartment complex? I'm also VERY curious what is planned for the adjacent lot on 1st Street and Portland.

combusean Dec 5, 2023 2:20 AM

I don't think they've had enough time to finish design and financing of the project on the NWC of 2nd St and Portland.

I'm not aware of any real movement on the NEC of 1st St and Portland which is strange because I seem to recall it was another Chicago developer, and those folks like to build. That lot is big and all of these lots need time-consuming density waivers to go as tall as they need to anyways, so that's possibly an issue.

Not something we would normally discuss but expansion of operations at the downtown railyard is surprising to me. Means more workers, more trains more trucks in and around downtown.

Anyone in logistics with insight on this one?

How It's Good for the Environment & Business
Introduces the first of its kind intermodal service between the Los Angeles Basin and Phoenix.
Converts truck to rail and takes tens of thousands of trucks off the road per year.
Moving freight by train instead of truck in the United States reduces greenhouse gas emissions by up to 75%.
Union Pacific estimates this new service product could help shippers avoid 25,214 metric tons of GHG emissions annually.
Provides heavyweight intermodal option for export goods from Arizona and surrounding areas.

Union Pacific Railroad has announced plans to open a new international intermodal terminal in the heart of Phoenix, providing customers with a sustainable rail option between ocean ports in the Los Angeles Basin and the nation’s fast-growing Southwest region.

The new terminal, owned and operated by Union Pacific, is expected to open in the first quarter of 2024. It will be established in Union Pacific’s downtown rail yard, with the capacity to grow to meet customer demand.

“We are excited to offer regional shippers and receivers in Arizona a fast, sustainable rail option to move product into and out of Southern California that is cost competitive and removes trucks from our nation’s congested highways, with an ability to expand offerings and grow in the future” said Kenny Rocker, Executive VP – Marketing and Sales for Union Pacific.

The new facility will open with drayage support provided by Duncan & Son Lines, a family-owned logistics firm in Buckeye, that primarily focuses on international container drayage from the ports of Long Beach and Los Angeles.

“Duncan and Son Lines is proud to be working with Union Pacific on this innovative rail solution, which will give our customers another service option to reduce truck emissions,” said David Duncan, VP of Operations at Duncan & Son Lines.

The new terminal further expands Union Pacific’s intermodal footprint, which is the largest in North America with the most direct services from coast to coast.
