The City of Phoenix, Arizona expects to see a boost in local construction jobs later this summer thanks to construction on a 34-story glass tower in downtown Phoenix, which will be the cities highest residential tower.
The highrise, which is seen as a symbol of urban revitalization, will comprise nearly 475 apartments, a dog park, garage with nearly 500 spaces, and retail space equal to 30,000 square feet. It is receiving high praise for its connection to Phoenix’s transit system.
City of Phoenix’s Economic Development Program, Eric Johnson, lauds the project for being a public/private partnership that will create what he calls a “bookend to our Civic Space Park, which has a historic post office and Arizona University student union on the north end, with an iconic, mixed-use high-rise development on the south end.”
The Phoenix Central Station project will be constructed at a nearly 20 year-old transit station site that will continue to be used by Valley Metro busses and Metro light rails.
