I got this from SkyscraperPage.com - They're finally going to do something on the Northwest corner of Central and McDowell, that is IF they get the height clearance from the so-called "Willo Neighborhood Association Group", which according to the above website, a meeting is scheduled at Phoenix College on October 1st. I hope this group approves the full height of the 3 towers, the tallest of which will be around 40 stories.

Was that an approval by the city or the Willo Neighborhood Association?

It's about time. The NW corner of McDowell & Central has been vacant for over a decade. Before then, it was home to a shuttered Mountain Bell (pre-Qwest phone company) building. This corner is overdue for high-density development and a good project will complement the Art Museum across the street.

There is a theatre in the area: Herberger. There is a Symphony hall in the area (Phoenix Symphony). There is the Civic plaza. There is BankOne Ball Park. There is US Air Arena (Baseball and Basketball). There are many boutiques. Fine Dining. Good Shopping. There is lots to do downtown

I do sometimes wonder when people say "There is nothing to do"...exactly what would they want? I agree that there aren't as many stores and restaurants as in other parts of the Valley, but there are theatres, museums, sport arenas and some unique and very good restaurants.
