Two eight-story buildings, one a multifamily community and one a hotel, will soon be going up on South 13th Street in downtown Phoenix. The Phoenix Business Journal reports the Eastlake Park Mixed-Use proposal also calls for ground floor restaurant and retail in each of the two buildings, as well as an attached six-level parking garage on the west side of the property. Berry Holdings is the owner, and the project design firm is Ayers Saint Gross.
The current proposal plans to demolish the site’s buildings except for one saved under the historic overlay and assemble the properties for mid-rise development similar to the rest of the development in the surrounding area of Washington and Jefferson. Berry needs a rezoning before they can get underway. Given that the planned site is a block from a light rail station, Phoenix city staff found the additional density appropriate for the location.
