CITY COUNCIL APPROVES SKYSONG LEASE AMENDMENT; DEVELOPMENT REVIEW BOARD HEARINGS SCHEDULED FOR REVIEW, PUBLIC COMMENT AND FORMAL CONSIDERATION ON PHASE III PLANS
On July 10, the City Council approved an amendment to SkySong, the ASU Scottsdale Innovation Center’s lease agreement to include the Phase III residential component and a parking garage. The amendment to the lease allows for 325 residential units to be built on the site, in addition to the 1.2 million square feet of approved research, office and retail uses.
The city’s Development Review Board is scheduled to complete its review of Phase III by late August, as originally planned, but will add a special meeting on August 3 for more review and public input.
The board’s review schedule for Phase III now includes meetings on the following dates:
– July 20 – work-study session on the Phase III site plan and designs for the apartments and parking structure included in this phase. The board will take no formal action.
– August 3 (additional meeting) – consideration during the regular agenda to formally approve the Phase III site plan (building envelope and parking structure location), and continued review during a study session of the architectural design of the buildings.
– August 24 – review and formal consideration of the Phase III design.
Work-study sessions for the board normally begin at 12:15 p.m., followed by the regular meeting at 1 p.m. in the City Hall Kiva, 3939 N. Drinkwater Blvd. On occasion, the board will resume work-study sessions after the regular agenda is completed.
CityCable 11 broadcasts the meetings live and has set special replays for these meetings at 5 p.m. on Fridays and noon on Sundays following the meetings.
The Development Review Board’s July 20 agenda also includes the review of a new $3.5 million Downtown Fire Station planned for the vacant lot west of the CVS pharmacy, northwest corner of Miller and Indian School roads.
