525' 44 floors & a second tower at 385' 30 floors.



The development of this project has been on going for about a year now, with some controversy over a public park and design plans...but it now looks like this are starting to move along and a new design has been brought forward. The image quality is horrible and I'm working on a higher resolution picture but until then...we have a preview of Arizona's soon-to-be tallest building as well as the first 500'+ building in the state! de-throning the 483' Chase tower that has held the title since 1973.

The whole project will eventually span 3 city blocks at Central Ave and Washington St, the 0,0 core of Phoenix. This project will bring downtown's first grocery store in over 30 years (AJs Fine Foods has already singed on) and well as condos, apartments, a boutique hotel, restaurants (PF Chang's has already signed on), retail, a bookstore, and 595,000 sq ft of office space. An additional 2 towers are planned for Phase 2.







Site prep is already under way and groundbreaking is expected in the next couple of months.











This is the original design and I've gotta say I like the new design a lot better, not to mention the height!

The point of this building.. not the post. Is it going to be the tallest building in phoenix, or the US or what?

Wow.... good deal! Thanks for sharing this HX_Guy. I'm glad to see the fence around the site, and I'll be glad to see an asphalt parking lot and an old building, not to mention Patriot's Park replaced by the City Scape towers.

Here is what Patriot's Park will be replaced by...



I'm sure they are exaggerating a little bit with the trees, especially since they all look to be 20+ years mature...but still, looks pretty good no?

A bookstore, an AJs Fine Foods, retail, a major restaurant, and rental apartments will also be on that block.

I don't know...it may just be me, but if this comes out the way they are saying it will, it's definitely very inviting. Living right above or a few steps from an AJs for grocery shopping, multiple restaurants, retail...next to a bookstore...plus walking distance from major sporting arenas, theatres and such is starting to sound pretty good.
