Hopefully we get to see some renderings :cheers:

Got stuck entertaining the kids on Sat AM and wasn't able to make the Zoom call. Anyone else have better luck? Renderings?

There were no renderings presented, but there was a lot of discussion of the site and potential issues. Some neighbors on Lynwood Street were concerned about traffic impacts. Nick Wood, the attorney representing the developers, said they'd be happy to support a Lynwood Street closure (similar to what has already been done to several streets in Willo) if all the residents agree to it. There was also broad consensus that there should be a traffic signal added at First Avenue and McDowell to accommodate vehicles coming out of the building's garage and trying to turn left. The building is planned to be 23 stories tall with retail on the ground level, although there was no mention of the Whole Foods rumors.

I noticed this morning that demolition has begun on the office building at 3rd Ave & Coolidge. The grassy era the neighbors liked so much has been fenced for several weeks, but now the structure itself is getting knocked down to make way for the new apartment building planned there.

When the Muse and Arthaus were planned and built, there was a similar consensus for a light there. The City didn't want to do that, saying it was too close to the light on Central.

Potential Confirmed for Much Larger TSMC Expansion
 
Whoah...this had been rumored but the scale and possible expansion of up to 6 phases is pretty incredible.

https://azbex.com/planning-developme...smc-expansion/

Quote:

The Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company site in north Phoenix could become home to a massive fabrication campus of up to six phases with more than 2MSF per phase, according to global and technology industry press reports and recent statements by a senior TSMC Arizona official.

With Phase I development well underway and crane counts on the site exceeding 20, at times, TSMC has quietly launched construction of Phase II.

This follows reports last year that the project valuation went up from the originally estimated $12B to $35B.

The investment increase stems largely from TSMC’s increasing production shift from five nanometer wafers to 3nm wafers and the associated outfitting of production facilities to handle the new product type, according to various semiconductor news outlets.

Phase I consists of nearly 3.6MSF of total built space, including a 2.88MSF factory – also known as the “Fab” – and supporting buildings. Phase II, aka Fab 2, is planned for another 2.88MSF.

For comparison, the two semiconductor fabs under construction by Intel in Chandler are smaller than TSMC’s Phase I development.

At last week’s BEX Private Development Summit, TSMC Arizona Sr. VP Brian Harrison gave a brief project update that surprised some attendees by disclosing Phase II is currently under construction.

The far greater surprise came, however, when Harrison detailed what could be 10-to-12 continuous years of construction and development at the 1,140-acre north Phoenix facility.

TSMC has trademarked what it refers to as the GIGAFAB® Model, a development approach in which the company develops giant campuses to concentrate manufacturing in centralized areas.

Collaboration With APS And The Roosevelt Row Creates Front Door To Neighborhood
 
Looks like all the murals are done. Will need to check out soon.

What they did with this substation has been beautiful. I can't wait to see it all light up at night. Especially the RoRo sign.

What I wish they would do next is repaint that UGLY fake apartment looking nonsense substation they connected this one to. Way too beige. Doesn't have to be murals, (which would be cool) but they need to repaint it something lively and colorful. To match the new substation.

LA can hide the oil pumps so Phoenix should be able to hide substations, at least. Sorry about the huge link.

So essentially that's 3 tower projects flanking Pierce between Central and 1st Street.

Sorry for the elementary school markup... but hope that shows the locations.

Hi Indy, out of curiosity what information is available on the upper right tower at 29 floors?

It's supposedly a design build project with CRG who is the development arm of Clayco, so they will probably be the contractor. Interestingly though the architect is Shepley and not LJC who is also part of the same company and the architect on PalmTower and X Phoenix II/X Roosevelt. Don't really have any more info than that.

The 25-story project next door, the land was purchased by Cordish Companies out of Baltimore, but it looks like the only high-rise residential projects they have done are all about the same height with 3 in KC and one in St. Louis from what I saw. That apparently was supposed to be design-build as well, but haven't heard much info on that one, seems to have gone quite.

Has anyone seen any permitting activity for Phase 2 of Mercer? (Now Aveterra)

New Redevelopment Project Planned Along Scottsdale Road
 
https://azbex.com/planning-developme...ottsdale-road/
Quote:

Woodbury Corporation has filed a first submittal with the City of Phoenix for a Planned Unit Development that would revitalize and redevelop an aging retail plaza on 9.2 acres near the NWC of Thunderbird and Scottsdale Roads.

The request seeks to rezone site’s various commercial designations under a PUD “to allow for reinvestment and the redevelopment of the aging center into a thriving, mixed-use development with retail, restaurants, residential and services uses designed around amenity spaces and the overall pedestrian experience,” according to the submitted narrative.

The Thunderbird Phase of redevelopment will add 25KSF of modern retail/restaurant space along with 350 new residential units. The current large parking areas, often referred to as “seas of asphalt” in redevelopment circles, will be replaced with structures screened from public view. Parking for the residential component will be primarily structured, while retail parking will be primarily surface. Both will be accessible via driveways to the north and south and from the existing retail development to the south.

The commercial uses will be brought forward toward Scottsdale Road for improved visibility and segregation from the parking areas, and the residential component will be concentrated to the west, creating a transition between the residential and commercial components, or located above the Scottsdale Road-fronting commercial spaces. The entire property aesthetic will step down toward existing single-family residential to the west.

I was thinking the same thing! I hope they have a new location planned.
