Yeah I was expecting that they would have an issue with a tall building ruining Crescents indy music lineup or some other absurd claim but they didnt just seems to be an information dump

I found that piece to be oddly lacking in flame-fanning and loose opinion for the New Times. I mean, I like some of that stuff, but this was responsible journalism for a short piece.

DTWN needs to actually shift NORTHWEST, like along Grand ave,
The Height Restrictions ARE HIGHER. And its going further away from the sky harbor flight line.
In that case Grand ave. would be REALLY GRAND

I would love to "Make Grand Grand Again." I don't see it thought... I hope that we can get the Grand Avenue Street Car project revived. That would be game changing.

No new info to share, for those of you that saw Astra at the top with a new post and got excited, sorry. I just wanted to say that this HAS to happen. I have a good feeling it will based on all of the progress so far, but just getting this going and finally replacing Chase as our new tallest will make me feel almost like the Diamondbacks winning the world series did. I wasn't sure I'd ever see a Phoenix team win a championship after growing into a sports fan with the Cards and Suns being a disappointment (mostly the Suns, the Cards just always sucked)... just like in the 20 years I've been on this forum, and the years before that I was interested in Phoenix/skyscrapers, I wasn't sure I'd ever see Phoenix get a new tallest.

^ Agreed. It's like the excitement I felt when I heard Lucas was making new SW films way back in '93 or '94. Couldn't believe it but always hoped!
