Phoenix | Moon Tower | 250 FT | 25 Floors

This looks like a done deal with the LPRN getting issued. Giving it it's own thread. I think it will be about 255' as that's the height limit for the lot I believe. However, the developers did submit an FAA reviews for 275', so will keep title as is until the final height can be verified.

I love these projects that fly under the radar and then all of a sudden, pop up and break ground!

Love the brick facade on the garage levels

Are we assuming a pool level above the grey middle section?

Location is 807 N. 3rd Street for anyone trying to find it. Looks like that main empty lot plus maybe will remove one building (not either of them on the corners).

Is that shipping container project across the street?

Correct. The only building that is getting demo'ed is the one housing the Valley Youth Theatre Administrative Offices.

This area will look really nice after Moon Tower and Sky go up.

I agree with the projects that fly under the radar moving quickly and the ones that get all the hoopla are stalled i.e. Plamcourt, Central station and Astra

It looks like the FAA came to a determination for the 275 ft. height proposal for Moontower. Does this mean it was approved?

Correct. But I think it still needs to go before the city council if they want to raise the lot height as the city has the limit set at 255'. I have not seen this coming up on any council meeting agendas.

Edit/Correction: Pulled up my downtown height zoning map and the lot is actually 250'. However, it's only 1/2 block North of the end of the 450' zone. If it goes before city council, I don't see them having an issue with it. However, at 25 floors, I guess the tower could still be in the 250' range and probably doesn't need a height increase.

Been almost a month since you posted this... things seem quiet around here and the labor shortage and material price spike can't be helping. Any new news on groundbreaking?

Most developments take 2-3 months to move dirt once the lots are fenced. Patience

That makes sense the lot was fenced in April so a June ground breaking seems to fit the time line you posted earlier, if two months is the norm.

Yes, i know it's not June yet. There hadn't been a peep, yet a lot has happened in the construction industry in a month since the potential early June groundbreaking was mentioned. I was wondering it there was any new news. Also, I was trying to drum up discussion.
