Cant wait to see this location thrive!

I drove by this a few weeks ago and it didn't look anywhere near inhabitable. At least the 3rd Ave side has boarded up windows and broken windows. I am looking forward to this building being used again, even if just a part of it. But overall it looks like it's a ways away from full use.

They're are multiple Phases to the Project. The First Phase include the main Cathedral are, which is now a landscaped courtyard for events. Also the new building on the west end is part of that phase. The First Phase is done and they are holding events. The second phase which is mainly the western most part of the building, Hence why the west end looks pretty rough.
What's done is pretty cool. There was a lot of work put into trying to leave the church as a sort of a relic without doing a ton of restoration work besides code work and retrofits.
Some of the work that was done was adding a 5 story elevator shaft, Multiple restrooms, a commercial kitchen for event catering, as well as all new MP&E
Source-Im sub that did some work in this building.

Plus a lot of the items like new Windows and paint that can make a building look MUCH better only takes a few days.

Thanks for the input and that is cool that you did some work here... I think it is a pretty good idea for it to be left relic-looking. Understood that it will be restored in phases, I just meant it just seems as though nothing is really done and the building isn't in use when you look at it from 3rd Ave.

Didn’t upload these from last weekend until now! Hope you all were able to check out the downtown scenes with Fan Fest.

PS: Cityscape Sunrise was this week after a morning OrangeTheory class. One of the best views IMHO!

I reached out last weekend to my contact at the Phoenix office of Community and Economic Development because it had been at least 2 years since I last heard from them on the future status of the Regency Garage RFP. I asked if the city had planned to revisit that at some point. The response I received was that they currently have no plans to revisit the RFP. Just wanted to let everyone know.

Meanwhile, Hines (runner-up proposal) has built all kinds of developments in Tempe. Great job City of Phoenix!

Tbf, tearing down that very large and serviceable garage seemed like a waste anyways. The replacement cost of the stalls, which would be necessary in any new project, may have screwed with the overall project's return.

If I'm remembering the right project, Hines even complained at the time that the winning proposal was pie in the sky and would never happen.

Upcoming DVC Agenda for tomorrow’s meeting.
  • Firehouse (1130 N. 1st St) RFP ~ Heather Rasmussen, City of Phoenix CED office
  • Milum Textiles HP update
  • TA for height bonus 1st Ave /Central area update (Z-TA-10-23-7)
  • City of Phoenix budget - discussion of priorities and formalizing input

Curious to learn more about the Firehouse RFP update if anyone attends. Last I recall from this, it was awarded to Poolhouse Group (group behind Gadzooks and Poolboy Taco)

Right, but don't question the tight controls of the RFP process. The apparatchiks at the city know best!

Yeah, thanks lol. What reason do you think the city would have had for simply dropping the RFP?

Man, that could've been completed by now. Just a boneheaded decision by the City to not go with Hines. Berger so far, has yet to deliver. No telling when that will break ground on Edith.

Seriously, how long has that site been fenced off… I’ll be shocked if they actually deliver but I’m not holding my breath!

The PBJ article primarily about Astra mentions other projects Aspirant is working on. I tend to believe these things when there are permits, but we'll see.

Meanwhile, the developer is moving forward on a 25-story apartment tower at the southwest corner of Central Avenue and McDowell Road in Phoenix.

On March 29, the company paid $13 million for the 3.29-acre parcel at 1500 N. Central Ave., across the street from the Phoenix Art Museum, according to Tempe-based real estate database Vizzda LLC.

That $145 million development will include 17,000 square feet of retail space and 325 apartment units, Jacobs said. It's near a light rail station and is next door to The Spaghetti Factory.

The team is also working on a 500-unit apartment tower in downtown Tempe, while continuing to develop build-to-rent communities across the country.
