CITY’S DEVELOPMENT REVIEW BOARD APPROVES SKYSONG PHASE III.  On Thursday, August 24, Scottsdale’s Development Review Board (DRB) approved, by a vote of four to two, the architecture/design and elevations for Phase III of the SkySong, ASU Scottsdale Innovation Center.  Phase III consists of 325 residential units and a parking garage to be built on the southeast corner of the site.  SkySong, the ASU Scottsdale Innovation Center, is located on the southeast corner of McDowell and Scottsdale Roads.  The city owns 42 acres and is leasing 37 acres of the site to the Arizona State University Foundation for the SkySong development.  The development team for the project is proceeding with plans for 1.2 million square feet of research, office and retail space.  Phase III is an addition to those plans.  Water, sewer and storm drain designs have been approved by the city and permits have been issued. Upcoming activity at the SkySong site includes trenching and the installation of utilities that will begin in early September.  Footing and foundation work of the first building (approximately 157,000 sq.ft.) should begin in late September.  Street improvements, landscaping and other site amenities will follow and overall site improvements will be completed by late spring-early summer 2007.   Additional project information and architectural renderings can be found at
